The 1.71m-tall lass works part-time as a customer service officer and is studying for a diploma in counselling studies at Kaplan. She admits it is tough juggling her responsibilities.
"I would wake up at 6am and go to work till 1pm. Then I go to my match in the afternoon and from 7pm till 11pm, I'm in school studying. By the time I get home, I'm exhausted. But it feels good to be productive."
Now, she has to add preparations for the Miss World finals to her packed schedule.
Besides working out to tone her body and perfecting her catwalk, Miss Dalreena said she is most afraid of the question-and-answer portion of the show.
She said: "It's difficult because you have to give the answers on the spot but I'm doing my research online and trying to expand my knowledge."
It almost seems as if she has more than 24 hours in her day. She said: "I don't mind struggling now so that I won't regret it later in life.
"I've always believed that once you start something, you just have to keep going, if not you'll lose your momentum."
