    I think I'm being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. The villagers in our fairytale wanted to make Belle believe the world was smaller than the way that she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her. I love playing someone who didn't listen to any of that.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    A very important lesson for Leaders comes from children's fairytale 'The Little Mermaid'. You should always be yourself rather than trying to be someone else, particularly an impossible ideal that exists only in your imagination. The Little Mermaid changed herself to become a human so as to win her Prince’s love, and yet the Prince married someone else. That's life! In my view, Leaders should always strive to be natural and proud of who they are.
