During the question and answer portion of the pageant, Venus Raj revealed that she got nervous.

This is the question that American actor William Baldwin asked Venus Raj: What is the one biggest mistake that you made in your life and what  did you do to make it right?

Maria Venus Raj’s answer was: “You know what, sir, in my 22 years of existence I can say that there’s nothing major, major problem that I’ve done in my life because I’m very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So thank you so much that I’m here. Thank you, thank you so much!” she said.

    Miss Raja answer is rigth, the only case is , she did not support her message clearly.

    If I were her, i could say that , althought misfortune is part of ones life , but in my case, i dont experience any big problem during my 22 years of existing due to the guidance of our Lord, whenever i made my decision, i need to pray for wisdom from our creator, and i do believed God will guide me the same to the rest of my life.

    i encourage everyone to ask for wisdom of any decision you want to make.

    I believed this the right support to her argument
