Miss Universe Nepal 2023 is Jane Dipika Garrett

Jane Dipika Garrett bested over 20 other competitors to win Miss Universe Nepal 2023 on Saturday, September 9 at the Godavari Sunrise Convention Center.

The 22-year-old nurse and business developer from Kathmandu made history as she became the first-ever plus-size beauty to win the national title. She is advocating for mental health, body positivity, and hormonal health for women in Nepal.

"As a woman who is curvy and who does not meet certain beauty standards, I'm here to represent women who are curvy, who struggle with weight gain, who struggle with hormonal issues — I believe that there is not only one type of beauty standard but every single woman is beautiful just as she is," said the new Miss Universe Nepal.

Garima Ghimire was named first runner-up while Buddhisara Sunar, Shitashma Pokharel, and Abhilasha Lamsal were announced as the second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 10 semifinalists were Alista Subedi, Sanskriti Chhetri Karki, Sarosy Neupane, Puja Paudel, and Chanel Shrestha.

At the end of the event, last year's winner Sophiya Bhujel crowned her incredible successor who will now prepare to represent Nepal at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador this November.
