Anjita Malnnea Jude’s journey to Queen Of Dhwayah crown wasn’t an easy one. Like most of the members of her community, she had to go through a lot of struggles to reach this far. At the transgender beauty pagent, she stunned everyone with her ravishing beauty and mindblowing performance, though it was her first attempt in the field of glamour. Anjita’s confidence level was appreciable. She says that after the achievement, she felt even more motivated. “The competition was really tight as 17 of us were there on the stage and all were breath taking ladies,” she says.

No one knows what life has in store for us. One year back, Anjita revealed her true self  to the world. What she faced later was the same other trans people went through. She was abandoned by her family and society. But Anjita has no complaints. Even after her family refused to accept her, she was bold and practical enough to think from their perspective. “It’s not their fault, neither mine. As time passes by, they will accept me. I will make them proud and we will be together happily ever after.”

 

‘It’s not my family’s fault, neither mine. As time passes by, they will accept me. I will make them proud and we will be together happily ever after’‘It’s not my family’s fault, neither mine. As time passes by, they will accept me. I will make them proud and we will be together happily ever after’

Overcoming the phase of struggle is the hardest thing in everyone’s life. In Anjita’s days of hardships, her friends were her major support and inspiration. Now, whatever happens in her life, she first pings them and shares it with them. And without disappointing her, they have been there for her. By achieving the title Queen Of Dhwayah, she wanted to prove to the people who had laughed at her. She also wants to be an inspiration to those who are trapped in the same situation and enourage them to fly. Anjita adds, “I know how it feels when we go through these stages of life. I have went through the same; so I want to open that cage for them so that they can fly.”

Standing at this position, Anjita wants to tell the world that society needs to change the way they look at them. She states that transgenders face even more problems than women. But she is not only speaking for transgenders, but all women.

Now, she is so close to her dreams as getting this title was a stepping stone. But Anjita’s biggest dream is to be a cabin crew and fly high and conquer the sky. With a confident smile, she says, “My dreams have no limits and I will go ahead.””
