When asked what is the greatest challenge facing women today, Miss Universe Singapore 2017 finalist Dalvin Kaur replied: “It is the mindset that to be successful, we are expected to break the glass ceiling at work, be the primary caregivers for our families and lead a healthy lifestyle.”

In an interview in The New Paper, she added: “It is important to realise we have to (prioritise) our own interests and make time for ourselves. We should not be pressured to mould ourselves into society’s depiction of a successful woman, but instead, create our own definition of success.”

It seems the 28-year old controls associate at a bank had no idea her younger sister signed her up for pageant competition until she was informed she had been shortlisted for the auditions.
