Miss Nepal Universe 2018, Manita Devkota made it to TOP Ten in Miss Universe 2018.
Journey to Miss Universe ended for Manita Devkota, but she did make a history by becoming the first Miss Nepal Universe to reach the Top 10 in Miss Universe, which is an incredible achievement given the fact that it was only the second time that Nepal had participated in Miss Universe. Nagma Shrestha was the first one to represent Nepal in Miss Universe in 2017.
Unlike in Miss World there were no challenges or awards based on public voting. Meanwhile, Shrinkhala Khatiwada who had represented Nepal in Miss World 2018 was able to win both the “Multimedia” and “Beauty With A Purpose Award.” Thanks to public voting which made it possible for her to win such prestigious awards and gain immense popularity on Social Media.
Manita Devkota Didn’t Get Exposure like Shrinkhala Did.
