Manita shared a heartwarming message on social media, describing her journey at Miss Nepal 2018. She said “Can you believe Miss Nepal 2018 finale is in two more days? So much has changed in these past seven weeks. I am a different person, mentally and physically than the one that auditioned on Feb 19th. I’ve created such strong bonds, learned more about Nepal, and found myself in the process. I will be forever thankful to THT for giving me this life-changing experience. No matter what happens in the final stage, we 25 are already Miss Nepals.”
