The auditions for Livon Face of Northeast 2018 were held successfully in different cities across the Northeast to find fresh faces with potential. Undoubtedly, a lot of talented young girls showed up for the auditions. Each girl was different and unique; some oozed charisma and won over the judges from the first greeting itself, there were some who wowed the judges by displaying superb acting, singing or dancing skills, there were a shy and timid few who bloomed into positive and confident versions of themselves over the course of their interaction with the judges. All in all, both parties on either side of the judging table got the opportunity to experience something unique last month.
Out of all the girls who auditioned, top 20 girls were selected to compete in the grand finale which will be held at Pragjyoti ITA Machkhowa, Guwahati on 16th June. Each girl was given scores on their personality, communication, confidence and walk .
The selected girls are Yazing Mize, Dani Rieyang, Grace W Ezung, Rovinuo Lama, Pinky Borah, Plabita Kalita Haloi, Danube Kangjam, Lakchoice Takhelmayum, Ruchira Debbarma, Sagarika Das, Sookini Sutnga, Charity Lyngkhoi, Anushka Lekharu, Anindita Kakoti, Jigyasha Kashyap, Dukhum Rima, Jahnabi Das, Karishma Hazarika, Liya Daimari and Parinita Bordoloi.
The girls expressed their happiness at being selected when they were given the news. ‘It feels great to be a part of the top 20 of Livon Serum Face of Northeast 2018 as I had been preparing hard for months. I will surely learn a lot from this prestigious pageant. I am really looking forward towards the amazing journey that my fellow contestants and I will be experiencing,’ said Anindita from Guwahati. For some contestants, it was like a dream come true. ‘I feel like I am in heaven. All through high school and college, I always wanted to participate in a pageant but my biggest fear was that I won’t win, which is why I never tried. But now, after getting selected, I feel more confident. Thank you Livon and Tattva Creations for giving me a beautiful opportunity,’ stated Plabita from Jorhat.
Although many may think that for these girls, it is all about the crown but actually it is much more. ‘I see Livon Face of North East 2018 as an opportunity to celebrate and create memories to cherish womanhood. I aim to be an inspiration, motivating not just the youth in the Northeast but the youth of the entire country, shares Dani from Itanagar.
Danube from Imphal is stoked about being able to represent her State. ‘Every human takes pride with a sense of responsibility whenever it comes to representing their origin, I feel ecstatic that I got this opportunity to represent Manipur as well as a chance to improve myself. I also feel euphoric that I would be able to meet beauties from the different parts of the region through this platform.
These girls also know that they can use this platform to improve themselves and they will do just that during the course of their grooming under the guidance of skilled mentors. Grace from Dimapur hopes to use this grooming period to her advantage. ‘It will be a great experience and opportunity for me to grow. I am hoping that his beauty pageant will help build my personality and confidence. I am currently preparing to be physically and mentally strong in order to withstand any circumstances that I may have to face.’ Actually Grace is not the only one who has started to prepare for the event.
