Panaji: Actress Amrita Rao, who is one of the judges at `I Am She`, the official preliminary to Miss Universe 2010, says that it was Sushmita Sen who gave wings to every girl`s dream to be Miss Universe one day.

"Sushmita is the most astonishing woman in the universe," Amrita said.
"Sixteen years back when crown came home, every girl wanted to be Miss Universe," Amrita said remembering the small time school pageants that were being held at the backdrop of Miss Universe.
