"I am Sohana Mansur from Dallas tx. Age 44. Working as a Medical Assistant, finance representative, and media personality! I also have my own business, Amway Company. I am originally from Bangladesh but have lived in the USA since 1997. From childhood, I had a passion for singing and dancing. After a divorce in 2013, I started pursuing my singing and dancing talents. Due to joining Amway my coach's guide, the positive team environments and reading entrepreneurial books, I got tremendous confidence.
I started performing at Indian Community cultural shows, wrote short funny cultural drama and acted at Fobana NY. I became a first place winner at the Kalakar competition in 2019 for nonclassical Hindi song and Archived Music Award from Lincoln Avenue Soch News of Dallas. Recently, I won Ms. Texas 2nd runner-up along with 4 awards for talent, entrepreneurship, beauty with purpose and congeniality.
For fun, I love Tiktok, writing poems and songs, cooking and charity."
Why do you do what you do?
I do what I do because I always had a dream when I was a child, but I was shy and as an Asian woman. After marriage, that dream faded away but was not lost. After divorce, joining Amway was the best decision I ever made. I became a confident, energetic stronger woman. And, I started believing in myself that there is nothing impossible! We women can do anything if we believe in ourselves and keep our heads up when we fail because failure is the stepping stone for success! My 2 daughters have always inspired me and all the successful people in the world story motivated me.

Who or what inspires you?
When I was was a child at the age of 10, my Aunt inspired me to be a singer. Watching her sing at that age made me jump at the chance to become an amazing singer just like her! She found me a wonderful singing tutor at home. From there, I started practicing day and night. My mother’s side of the family had always loved singing and dancing. Every family party we had, I would perform a dance, as they cheered me on every time supporting me! My dad took me to my very first TV show where I performed for the first time in front of lots of people and that is how my dance journey had started. My aunt is the very person who inspired me to work towards every goal I set my mind to.
What do you plan to do once you cross the millionaire mark?
The first thing I will do is help needy children who have no parents and utilize my name in creating a foundation that would leave a huge impact on the world!
