Aika Qureshi

My name is Aika Chaudhary. I am 41 years old and a blessed mother of three amazing children. My background education is in Criminal Justice but my true passion is in Cosmetology. Currently, I work for a prestigious car manufacturer, Volkswagen. Originally born in Lahore, Pakistan but have been living the last 40 years in this great country we call America. Growing up as an Pakistani American, I have always been connected to my culture. I want to become part of the first Mrs. Pakistan because of women empowerment, power and having pride for being a Pakistani woman. Our women have always been considered a step behind from a man but in today’s world, Pakistani American women are amongst the most educated and strong-willed. I, being a divorced woman myself have realized that I do not need a man to support me. I have become a more independent and successful person all thanks to the support of my family. Through this pageant and my story, the Pakistani community will know how Pakistani women can grow and be successful in any field of life. Not only in profession but as a Mother as well. If I win the title of Mrs. Pakistan, I would like to be the voice that will motivate women who are afraid to show their strengths. Help them know what their rights are And especially know how beautiful they really are. We are all united thanks to our phenomenal motherland, which we call Pakistan.

Khizera Tariq

I was born in Pakistan and moved to the U.S at the age of 12 and vividly recall some wonderful memories growing up in Pakistan, which I miss to this day. A part of me wishes to recreate the Pakistan I recall here in the U.S. and another part of me feels it is my responsibility to represent Pakistan and Pakistanis in the U.S. In fact, due to this very reason while working full-time in a fortune 100 company to later becoming a new mom to twin boys, I founded Lahore Valley to Lehigh Valley Entertainment with my older sister after my college years in hopes of providing entertainment for the Pakistani community close to home including spreading cultural awareness & engaging with the broader community.
Becoming part of this pageant will open doors of opportunity on a larger scale where I would be able to reach a larger audience. I have recently moved to Northern Virginia from a small town and a close-knit community in Pennsylvania where I have lived since my move to the U.S in 2006. Although this was a big change for me I found it exciting due to the huge Muslim & Pakistani community I see here. I believe this pageant will allow me to get more familiar & involved within the Pakistani community here similar to how I did back in my hometown with volunteering & collaborating efforts with local mosques/organizations, Pakistani communities, and local colleges/universities as well as being the Newsletter Chief editor at one time for Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley in PA.
I have always had the vision to create a name for the Pakistani community here in the U.S. Although, I see many have or continue to make a tremendous effort but I also know many who wish to be more involved but don’t have the right resources or guidance to do so. I wish to inspire and guide many more who wish to make a difference much like myself as our communities can certainly benefit from it. In addition, I strongly believe living in this great nation: “the United States of America”, it is imperative we get more involved outside of our communities in hopes of bridging the gap. I have a few ideas and I hope this platform will provide me the help and support needed to move forward with the vision, Insha’Allah (God willing).

Moazzma Hunain

My name is Moazzma Hunain and I am from Lahore, Pakistan. I was raised in New York and received my B.B.A. degree in Human Resources Management from the City University of New York, Baruch College. I currently reside in Dallas, Texas with my husband and my two daughters. Apart from being a full-time mom, a few months ago, I decided to take my passion for connecting with people and started a personal Instagram blog. Here I am able to connect with people of all ages from all different parts of the world. My platform allows me to empower young women as they see my journey as a wife, a mother, a homemaker, and a woman who loves what she does, and is working towards her dreams.
It has always been a lifelong dream to inspire people and touch their lives in a positive way. I want to become Mrs. Pakistan USA so that I can empower women to be independent leaders who thrive in their societies regardless of their marital status. I hope to build a network of strong, independent women who are dedicated and driven to make a difference in the world. I feel honored to have the opportunity to represent both my countries, Pakistan and USA, as I have always considered myself to be a very patriotic and proud Pakistani-American Muslim woman. This pageant will give me the platform that I need to make my voice be heard on a much larger scale, and allow me to get in touch with foundations to help make an impact in the lives of many more people.
My goal is simple, I want to win People’s Hearts

Although running for the pageant is something that is outside of my comfort zone but by becoming a part of this pageant I hope to empower and inspire other women. If I win Mrs. Pakistan USA title there are many things I would like to achieve. I would like to use this platform to introduce and highlight many of the charities which do not get the attention they deserve. I would also like to change the image of Muslim women that the western media portrays.
