The Inspiring Journey of Miss Nepal at Miss Universe

The Miss Universe pageant is known worldwide for its prestige and the opportunity it offers to young women from all over the world. This year, Miss Nepal made headlines not for winning the crown, but for breaking barriers and making history in her own way. Let’s dive into what made her so unique and inspirational!

At 22 years old, Miss Nepal became the first ever plus-sized contestant in the 71-year history of the Miss Universe pageant. Her presence in the competition challenged the conventional standards of beauty that the pageant usually represents. While many people appreciated her beauty and embraced her different figure, she also faced harsh criticism from those who failed to appreciate her uniqueness.

Jane Dipika Garrett, the courageous contestant from Nepal, was open about her feelings and experiences. Despite struggling with self-esteem issues, she had always dreamt of being a model. Participating in the Miss Universe competition not only gave her the opportunity to represent her country but also helped her gain a newfound confidence in herself.

To her surprise, the amount of applause she received on stage exceeded her expectations. Miss Nepal stated that she had “wasn’t expecting anything” and participated in the pageant to represent women from all around the globe.

However, amidst the global support, she also received hurtful messages from people who judged her solely based on her appearance. Some called her names like “whale” and questioned why she didn’t go to the gym. These hurtful remarks deeply affected her. What these people failed to understand was that Miss Nepal had been diagnosed with a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which can cause weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, acne, and excess hair growth.

Miss Nepal courageously shared her struggles with PCOS and how it had taken a toll on her mental health and self-esteem. Despite the challenges she faced, she remained determined, focusing on giving her best performance at the Miss Universe pageant.

In a world where people often criticize and judge others based on their appearance, we should learn to ignore the negativity. Miss Nepal is an embodiment of beauty, inside and out. Her story serves as a powerful reminder that there is no such thing as a “wrong body type” and that we are all beautiful in our own unique ways.
