This is her second time to join Binibining Pilipinas, and she believes that this year people will see a stronger and better Parul. “You know what they say, when it’s a comeback, it’s more exciting. I really prepared for this; I worked on my weaknesses. I got this second change, and I am going to work harder,” she says. Apart from her Binibini preparations last year, Parul also took the time to volunteer for relief operations in Bohol and Tacloban, and considers this experience as one of the best things that has happened to her so far. “Helping them made me feel grounded. No matter what happened, I see in each and everyone in us that we didn’t lose hope. Hope was what kept us going even through the calamities. The calamity opened my eyes to see the bigger picture in life,” she says. Parul loves cooking, playing volleyball, and surfing. She has also dabbled in hair styling. She is fluent in Hindi, Arabic, Gujarati, Ilocano, Filipino, and English.

Her aunt, Nini Ramos-Licaros was also Binibining Pilipinas-International 1968. It was challenging for her to join the pageant because she has to prepare herself mentally, physically and emotionally.
