Suggestions for the pageant aspirants and to those who see Priya as a role model
“It’s the conspiracy made by your hard work, patience, and luck. My journey has failures in Miss Nepal but eventually, I won the Miss Cosmopolitan World Award. Maybe that was my destiny. Never lose hope. See the positive side of the failures and if possible work on it. Stay stubborn to get better exposure and learning. Never opt for shortcuts, this is like the 99th snake on Snakes and Ladder game, gets you to the top, and brings you down in a short time. ”
Priya’s take on Security of Nepali Women
“The women security is at its worst in our country. The increasing cases of acid-attacks and rapes makes me sad. I also supported various protests demanding justice for victims. We need a government that is for us, not just to direct us every time. The provision of free treatment, free education does not seem to be justifiable, the culprit must be punished so that victims get some relief. Moreover, such attacks and crimes should not take place at first ”
A public appeal from the #nepalneedsyou campaign
Nepal is going through a lot of conflicting times for ages. We have been disturbed, felt vulnerable with times and spaces, we have been covered with. We all are going through a difficult phase both with political instability and due to lockdown restriction with COVID19. We know things aren’t as easy as they were before. But, please please don’t give up only because someone else did on you!
Be motivated, busy, and work on your weak points because the game of life, to experience wins and losses, to create a new happy memory, and to inspire and support others, is still ON.
“Stay Safe, Be Kind, Be Optimistic. You are yet to make Good memories in this world.”
