Describe yourself in three words
Compassionate, cheerful and hard working
One woman you idolise ?
Angelina Jolie because not only is she successful at what she does, she also gives back to humankind. She is an active humanitarian
What is talent? One talent that will help you win the crown
Talent is a natural superior quality. The quality that will help me win the crown is my perseverance. I work hard at whatever I decide to do in life. Miss Nepal has been a dream for a long time and I will give my all till the end of this contest
Miss Nepal has often been associated with beauty and brains along with a purpose. What purpose would you serve using your beauty with brains?
I would work in the field of ‘human trafficking’ as this is a field I’ve been feeling very strongly about since many years
If you win the crown, what would you do to bring about a change in the world?
First, I would focus on myself, to be a better human being, to be knowledgeable about the field I will be working in. By being a good citizen who practices the art of being loving, caring and sharing, I will first change myself and the rest will follow
If you were given a chance to endorse a product, what would that be and why?
I’d probably want to endorse beauty products as I spend quite a lot of money on this. The product/brand of course should not have harmed any animals in the production, and it must have used organic products from Nepal.
