As per the Miss Universe Website, the 22 year old was born and raised in Kuwait and moved by herself at 15-years-old to Mumbai, the “City of Dreams,” to pursue her aspirations.
“As a young girl growing up in Kuwait with no exposure. I would always look up to Miss Universe with so much awe but never imagined a girl like me who had a speech defect and had marks on her body could ever represent her country on such a prestigious platform”, Adline Castelino said in the interview.
Unlike most other models and beauty pageants, Castelino does not have any major aspiration to be an actor. She, however, aspires to venture into business as her she is a business graduate and her “passion lies in business”.
Moreover, she informed that she has no rigid decision about taking her career into acting as she is an “adventurous spirit and wouldn’t mind acting.
Miss Universe 2021 3rd runner up works with a welfare organisation Vikas Sahayog Pratishthan (VSP), that aims at the development and sustainability of Indian farmers. She is also an active advocate of spreading awareness about the LGBT community.
She used her entrepreneurial spirit to obtain her business administration degree from Wilson College and enjoys the creative opportunities her career path provides.
She works as a Goodwill Ambassador for Smile Train, is the face for the PCOS Free India Campaign, and collaborates with SNEHA, an organization that provides affordable healthcare to women.
Her grandmother died giving birth to her mother at the young age of 22, because she could not afford healthcare. This drove Adline to advocate for the rights of farmers in her community to have sustainable livelihoods and work closely with Vikas Sahyog Pratishthan to give back to deprived rural communities.

|During the final Question and Answer round, Adline was praised for her well-rounded response. She was asked: "Should countries lockdown due to COVID-19 despite the strain on their economies, or should they open their borders and risk a potential increase in infection rates?" |
To which she answered, "Good evening universe. Well, coming from India and witnessing what India is experiencing right now, I have realised something very important that nothing is more important than the health of your loved ones. And you have to draw a balance between economy and health. And that can only be done when the government works with the people hand in hand and produces something that will work with the economy. Thank you."
