Congratulations are in order for former Miss Earth, Nicole Faria!! She just tied the knot with her long-time beau of 5 years, Rohan Powar.
The couple first met when Powar, who was born in America, visited India during an internship & according to his Carnegie Mellon University bio, works in the automotive manufacturing industry.
In 2018, Powar returned to the United States to complete his MBA at Carnegie Mellon. However right before he was going to leave, Nicole and their friends decided to throw him a farewell party. It was a party for her too as he turned it from a farewell party to an engagement party when he surprised her with a proposal!
Shortly after the engagement she spoke on the moment with Time of India saying everyone knew he was going to propose but her.
Everyone knew that he was going to ask me to marry him — everyone except me, of course. He got down on one knee at the party and proposed in front of everyone.
She also said even though they spoke of getting married previously, because he surprised her they couple has no date in mind just yet and are going to enjoy this period of their relationship, but did give us a hint as to where the nuptials will take place.
“We are sure that the wedding will take place somewhere in India.”
The pair are true #relationshipgoals. She’s not the only one making history, he was the first foreign employee at an Indian company of 3,000 nationals. He quickly rose in ranks to become the Director of Operations over Mexico and United Arab Emirates.
Faria represented India at the 2010 Miss Earth pageant in Vietnam. She was the first and so far only Miss India Earth to have won the coveted title.
After she brought home the crown, the President of India honored her with an award for being the first Indian woman and Miss India to win the coveted Miss Earth title. Since her reign as Miss Earth 2010, Faria has gone on to the world of show business as both a successful model and actress.
Nicola has been featured on the covers Vogue, Elle and Cosmopolitan. Starring in the 2014, Bollywood film, Yaariyan.
Congratulations to the happy couple!!
