Birmingham, Mar 15 2004

Birmingham student Amrita Hunjan today told how she won the Miss India UK title - after being entered for the competition by her mum.

But the Birmingham University dentistry student has insisted that although she is now looking forward to the world finals in Delhi, she intends to keep her feet on the ground.

The 19-year-old from Selly Oak said she was concentrating more on her exams than anything else at the moment.

"It was really exciting to win," she said. "It was actually my mum who entered me - I didn't know anything about it.

"I was really shocked when I won because all the girls there had such a high level of talent. And I had hardly slept for two nights beforehand because I was trying to do the rehearsals and revision all at the same time.

"It is lovely to win but also a bit intimidating, especially when I think about the world finals. But I think that it does give you opportunities."

The Miss India UK contest looks for women who are not only attractive but also talented and intelligent. To win Amrita impressed judges with her singing talent and with her answers to a host of questions.

"Obviously they want someone who has a certain physical appearance and stage presence but they also want someone who can show some intelligence," said Amrita, who is originally from Leeds.

Amrita, who is in the second year of a six year course, admitted it had been hard work trying to keep on top of her studies and prepare for the competition, which was held in Coalville, recently.

"The course is very intensive and I am worried that taking time out for this has meant that my revision timetable has fallen behind. But it was an opportunity worth taking.

"I always wanted to do dentistry," she said. "My dad is a dentist and I remember really liking the personal interaction that it involves.

"I definitely want to continue with my studies but it will be interesting to see what opportunities arise from this."
