Ishani Shrestha was crowned Fanta The Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal 2013 in Kathmandu on March 20.

Chief Judge Former Chief Secretary Tirtha Man Shakya asked the top five beauties, “What do you prefer — nuclear family or joint family?” Shrestha won the hearts of the judges and the audience with her answer, “I prefer joint family. Growing up in a joint family has taught me to be a people’s person. It has taught me to use my lips for kindness, my vision for passion, my ears for help, hands for charity and heart for love. My joint family has taught me great morals and values that I will hold for the rest of my life. It has made me become the strong, reliable, humble, helpful and independent woman that I am today. That is why I prefer joint family.”

During the grand finale, she was graceful, elegant and walked with confidence. She truly shone at the show. After the win, the 21 year old beauty from Naxal, Kathmadu, was “happy and speechless”. She expressed that it was her hard work and belief that won her the coveted crown. She was in tears.
