Sushmita Sen Urges the Followers To ‘Own’ Themselves

Sushmita Sen, born in 1975, won the prestigious Miss Universe pageant in 1994. She was the first Indian to win the title. She acted in a few Indian films as well.

Sushmita Sen, the former Miss Universe, has always lived her life by heart. From deciding to adopt a child when she was just 23 to not following a conventional path in her career, Sushmita Sen has always proved that she is a woman of strength and substance. Sushmita Sen chose not to get married at a very young age like most of the girls in India. Instead, she built up her family by adopting two girls with whom she shares a special bond. She has always been unapologetic about her choices and this makes her who she is today.

Sushmita Sen wants people not to change themselves for anything

Sushmita Sen posted an inspirational quote on her Instagram which is even more motivating because the long-legged Bong beauty practiced the same mantra as she has preached.

She gave it the caption,

‘& manage everything else!!! Don’t manage who YOU are, to own everything else!! #mybelief #livetrue#bemoreofyou I love you guys!!! #authenticlife ’

Her followers said that they 'needed' to hear this

Sushmita Sen’s post came as a morning motivation for most of her followers on the Instagram.

'thanks @sushmitasen47 u suddenly made my day just when I was looking for inspiration I love u forever'

'This is what I needed to hear right now @sushmitasen47 thank you '

'Beautiful morning ma'am, keep teach & show, me the right way of life.'

Sushmita Sen adopted her daughter Renee when she was just 23 years old

Sushmita Sen is one of the coolest mothers who shares a great bond with her daughters Renee and Alisah. She adopted Renee when Sushmita was only 23 and had to face many difficulties in adoption being a single mother. Her family also suggested her against the decision saying it was too early for her. But Sushmita Sen followed her heart and thinks it is the best decision she ever made. According to Sushmita Sen, adoption stabilized her life and gave it a purpose she was seeking. She says that although she is not a biological mother she gave them birth through her heart and never missed the joy of motherhood.

On Renee’s twentieth birthday, Sushmita Sen penned down a heartfelt note.

Sushmita Sen is the coolest mom who gifted her younger daughter Alisah an unusual birthday gift

While most of the parents would gift their ten-year-olds a trip to the water park or a PlayStation, Sushmita Singh decided to present her daughter Alisah an unforgettable gift that would become a lifetime memory. She took Alisah for a scuba dive in the Maldives where she and her elder daughter Rene had also done their first scuba dive. Alisah made mom Sushmita Sen proud by diving for 41 minutes under 29 feet in the Indian ocean.

According to Sushmita Sen,

‘ To the bravest 10 year old I know & take pride in being her mother!!This is what I gifted her for her 10th birthdayAlisah was only 5 yrs old when Renee & I got certified as PADI Open Water Scuba Diver, and she was most annoyed that the minimum age for scuba diving was 10 yrs old...she waited 5 birthdays for this day!!! And of course did her first scuba dive in Maldives, just like her Maa & sister SHE WAS AMAZING, logging in 41 minutes & 9 meters/ 29 feet in the Indian Ocean.’

Sushmita Sen, born in 1975, was the first Indian to win the Miss Universe pageant. After winning the pageant, the natural trajectory for her was to become a Bollywood actress which she did for some time. Sushmita Sen has featured in Hindi, Tamil and Bengali films. She also won a Filmfare award. However, Sushmita Sen did not work as much in the films as her colleague IAshwariya Rai who won the Miss Wolrd pageant in the same days.
