Want to highlight Bangladesh’s heritage, culture: Priota

Priota Iftekhar, the winner of ‘Miss Culture Worldwide-2018’, says her goal is to inform the world about the culture and heritage of Bangladesh.

“I’m elated at such an achievement on the Victory Day,” she told a media briefing, her first since the competition in Zimbabwe in December last year.

It was Bangladesh’s first win in the competition.

Priota shared her experiences at a press conference arranged by Surecell Medical at Jatiya Press Club on Wednesday, UNB reports. 

“My main goal was to highlight Bangladesh and its culture. And I did it,” she said. “The feeling of hoisting the national flag at an international event cannot be described in words.”

“I dressed as a female freedom fighter in the final stage of the competition to represent my country,” Priota said. She suffered a leg injury before the competition but took part ignoring the doctor’s warning. 

“I never thought that I would be the champion. I thought at best I would reach top three,” she added.

Priota established ‘Flag Girl’ in 2008 to help women travellers at home and abroad. It currently has over 200 members. 

She was also a recipient of Joy Bangla Youth Award-2018.

Priota, also the ambassador of Bangladesh Tourism Corporation, starred in a telefilm titled “Impossible five” back in 2013 and later in Sri Lankan film “Pani Makuluwo” in 2017.
