حکومتِ اور ریاستِ پاکستان کی نمائندگی ریاست اور حکومت کے ادارے کرتے ہیں۔ ہماری حکومت نے کسی غیر ریاستی اور غیر حکومتی فرد یا ادارے کو ایسی کسی سرگرمی کیلیے نامزد کیا ہے اور نہ کوئی ایسا شخص/ادارہ ریاست/حکومت کی نمائندگی کر سکتا ہے۔— Murtaza Solangi (@murtazasolangi) September 13, 2023

Beauty pageants are rare in Muslim-majority Pakistan and Erica shared in an interview with BBC, “It feels great to represent Pakistan. But I don’t understand where the backlash is coming from. I think it is this idea that I would be parading in a swimsuit in a room full of men.”
A graduate of St Patrick’s High School and Government College of Commerce and Economics, Erica started her professional modeling career in January 2020 and her pictures found their way into several magazines including Diva Magazine Pakistan.
She insisted that she had done nothing wrong and said, “I’m not breaking any law by representing Pakistan on a global platform. I am doing my bit to quell any stereotypes about it.” In an interview with Voice of America, she added, “I won’t do anything that would harm the reputation of the country.”
