I could be as a role model for so many people out there and that became my journey to Miss Nepal pageant.

Grooming means mental, physical, personal and intellectual grooming. Mrs Rachna Gurung Sharma groomed us professionally. Intellectual people from every field economic, political and social came and taught us about different facets and increased our knowledge. We were taught about presenting ourself, communicating and public speaking skills. It makes a big transformation within us. No other training could have matched the diversity of training even in Miss World or Miss Universe contest.So that is how we changed and transformed.
Q) How were you feeling in the crowning moment?
I was nervous and emotional before the show started. After top 7 rounds ended and we were at backstage friends were congratulating me and saying I will be there in top 4. When the name of titles like Miss Nepal Earth, Miss Nepal Universe, Miss Nepal international were announced there was only one title left.I was confident that my name will be announced next. For me it was a moment of accomplishment rather than emotional. I had it in my mind all the time and reality was no less, I fulfilled my dream.
