Sabrina, who supports a charity called Astara Angels that works with children in Rishikesh, said she might consider offers from Bollywood although this will be only "for a short while." Her long term goal is television journalism.

"My community has been getting a bad rap from the media in recent times, and I want to do my bit to present the real picture," she said in an interview to a local daily here.

She says she will promote a diverse and multicultural look for Australia when she competes for the Miss World title in Poland in September.

"I think the advantages for me in this country is I have adopted some western values and being a Muslim I have eastern values too," the Sydney university student said, adding "as long as I believe in the right things and treat others well... it shouldn't matter what religion I am." Asked about her chances of winning the Miss World crown, she says she might get into the top ten. "Perhaps the world is not yet ready for someone as multicultural as me," Sabrina told the IndiaLink newspaper.

Hi, I really do not understand why this article is published in your portal. I thought this portal was meant purely for health related content. Did I by any chance miss the link to some health related facts in this article?

You are right to an extent, however as Sabrina supports a charity called Astara Angels that works with children in Rishikesh- the news has appeared under the Health related NGO section of news in medindia - Editors, medindia.
