His capability as a trainer, guide and motivator is amply demonstrated by the fact that MISS EARTH 2010, is his daughter, Nicole Faria. Incidentally Nicole is the only winner for India at any International beauty pageant since 2000, and the first Indian to win Miss Earth. Nicole’s distinguishing abilities, apart from her great looks, are extreme confidence and superb communication skills.
