Misbah Iqbal was born on June 1st, 1984 in Karachi, Pakistan. At the age of 22 she became the first married woman with 3 children to be competing in the Mrs. World Pageant 2007, after achieving the title of Mrs. Pakistan World 2007. Misbah is a certified medical assistant since 2002, and is currently working on her Associate’s degree in Science. She aspires to become a physician’s assistant in the future. History was made as Pakistan’s first married woman participated in the prestigious Mrs. World Pageant in 2007.
In her words, “I would like to become the role model for all the Pakistani women out there that have talents buried deep within them, but are scared of bringing them out. Being a mother of three, and having to juggle education and beauty pageants may seem daunting, but it is entirely possible if you have to willpower to do so. Anything is possible with the proper motivation. I wish to encourage other Pakistani women that feel that they cannot succeed in this medium, and hopefully strengthen the influence of the Pakistani women throughout the world; the first step is this pageant.
At the end of the day, when you get past the stress of competing in pageants and deciding what to do with life, family is always there for you, and is your number one critic, whether good or bad. My husband and my family have been very supportive of me, and I couldn’t ask for a more supportive family than the one I currently have.”
