Even as Miss India, Ami Vashi is all geared up for the grand finale of the Miss World 2003 tomorrow, the Indian community in China is backing her mission to win the prestigious pageant held for the first time in the middle kingdom.

"So far it has been a wonderful experience for me to be with friends from over 100 countries," Vashi said in a telephone interview ahead of tomorrow's final of the Miss World 2003 pageant in Sanya, a picturesque city in the tropical island province of Hainan in South China.

Asked about her preparations for the D-day, she said, "There is a sense of nervousness. There is always going to be nervousness because of the pressure."

"But we have to perform our best. I am looking forward to the day. I am keeping my fingers crossed. All I can do is try my best and the rest is really up to god," said the 22-year-old financial consultant-turned social worker from Gujarat, when asked about her chances of being crowned Miss World 2003.

Vashi is already one of the ten most popular contestants, the official website of the Miss World 2003 pageant said this week.
