Natural beauty full-figured: First Nepal pageant of its kind

KATHMANDU, Sept 1: A community has come forward to create awareness on various aspects of natural beauty and at the same time promoting a clear message against body shaming. An event organized by Fariya Center Private Limited based in Jamal organized a first of its kind event at the Chhaya Center in Thamel. Miss Nepal Curvy brought females alike to enter into a new phase of well defined natural beauty.

There were 30 full-figured female contestants who underwent rigorous training for 15 days prior to showtime. The event that concluded on the 29th August was extremely successful considering its inception in the society.

Social messages such as to” love and accept yourself” along with” beauty and beyond” made its mark. The organizers helped participants gain confidence and accept themselves the way they are. In a largely body-shaming society where body image plays a key role in personality development, this beauty pageant has been successful in removing the shackles providing a positive platform for females to be more open toward the way they are.

Fariya Center Private Limited also pledged its corporate social responsibility in order to spread awareness against body shaming and similar activities that have put our women in society a step back. It is a genuine platform for females now to overcome the dilemma of the way they are regarding their shape and size. They have several media tie-ups who have covered their event, and they are also planning to run a radio program in order to create awareness of body shaming, menstrual awareness in line with their CSR responsibilities.

The following were the winners of the first beauty pageant of Miss Nepal Curvy,

Miss Nepal Universe – Sonal Sharma

Miss Nepal Earth – Sebika Bomjan Shahi

Miss Nepal World – Anuradha Dhungana
