Ciza Zoya Azeez is no ordinary beauty queen. This woman encompasses a rare beauty coupled with an empathetic and insightful mind. By her own admission, she is a woman on a mission. Now, hear of Azeez’s incredible journey in her own words.
“When most people hear the title of the award I received, they nurse the illusion that I am a singer. But that is far from the fact. The title conferred on me ‘Miss Voice of Kerala’ is not because of my musical talents but because I raise my voice for others. This Miss Kerala title was one with a difference. Setting aside convention, the emphasis was on what the needs of a contemporary woman would entail.
This title holds considerable significance for me and defines who I have eventually become. During my formative years, I harboured many insecurities and challenges. But during the course of this competition I suppressed the fears and uncertainties to emerge as the victorious voice in the form of Miss voice of Kerala. This has been a personal landmark for me.
I would utilize my victory to inspire and motivate other young girls who think they do not fit into the mould that society has pre-defined for them. I also never really confirmed to the designated expectations of society and stuck to my guns fully confident about my convictions. I truly believed in myself and my abilities and this helped me to steadily advance towards my goals. The field of arts has always been my muse and this has stimulated my personal growth.
My ambition is to be a realistic role model for young girls and also to achieve milestones in the field of my choosing. Moreover, my parents have been my biggest strength and I would like to give back to them and make them proud. “
