Sharing a bikini clad photo of herself, the first ever Nepal’s representative to the Miss World beauty contest, Nagma Shrestha, has given an important insight on being imperfect. Nagma is 5 feet and 11 inches tall. That is a very tall when compared to the average height of Nepali women. In a paper I read a while ago while researching about the minimum height requirement in Miss Nepal, I had found that the average height of a Nepali woman is less than 5 feet. I can imagine what it might have been in being a feet taller than an average Nepali women.
Nagma says that being unusually tall had caused problem to her in her life. She wrote, “I have been subject to body shaming all my life for being tall or say… taller than my peers!”
Being tall might be good thing in an beauty contest but, in school it is not as good. In an interview Nagma told that nobody wanted to be near her when they were taking group photographs.
Nagma adds, “Whatever size, shape, height or body type you are let me tell you one thing – everyone is imperfect and inevitably flawed! But, from my experience, my message to all – Loving yourself is the greatest revolution.”
In the end, Nagma says, “Be you, do you! You got this!”
Nagma is currently in Las Vagas, USA and is readying herself for the grand finale schedule to be held on November 26, 2017. She is one of the three new entries in the contest out of 93 total contestants this year.
Nagma was Top 10 at the Miss Earth 2012, third runner up of Miss World University and the winner of Best Tourism Video at the Miss Eco International.
