Name: Barsha Pokharel
To me Miss Nepal is… Both a platform and an opportunity to learn and groom oneself to represent the country at a global platform.
The most important thing in life is…Passion, followed by knowledge.
Some people who inspire me are… My parents because they have been my greatest source of strength and support.
10 years from now, I want to…Run a business based on the tourism sector of Nepal, and scale it to its maximum potential.
Name: Kritika Giri
If money was not an issue, I would be doing… Pure social work.
Some people who inspire me are…My mother, also a single mom, who raised me to become independent and brave. I also admire Susmita Sen because she has adopted homeless kinds and is raising them independently.
Some values all people should have are… Respect for each other’s work.
If there is one animal that represents me it would be… Jaguar, as I am silent most of the time but fierce when it is time to take action.
