Meet the First Plus-Size Winner of Miss Universe Nepal 2023
The world of beauty pageants can be glamorous and competitive, with many of the contestants upholding ideals of grace and elegance. This year’s Miss Universe Nepal broke the typical beauty conventions with the first ever plus-size winner Jane Dipika Garrett who won the prestigious award.
She is a body positivity advocate.
Jane Dipika Garrett was among contestants who competed in the Miss Universe Nepal. She is a dedicated body positivity advocate who constantly raises awareness for mental health among women on her social media platforms. Her win marks the first time a plus-size contestant has won in a national pageant.
Jane is an American-Nepalese who frequently uses social media to normalize plus-size bodies and change beauty standards for women. “I believe that there is not only one type of beauty standard, but every single woman is beautiful just as she is.” On her Instagram, she constantly inspires others to embrace their natural bodies and be confident as well.
Her mission is to represent curvy women.
“As a woman who is curvy and who does not meet certain beauty standards, I’m here to represent women who are curvy, who struggle with weight gain, who struggle with hormonal issues,” said Jane. “Every woman possesses innate and unique beauty.” Her story is an inspiration for us all to embrace our true selves!
Learning to embrace our natural selves is extremely important for self-confidence, and many including this woman who shows what postpartum bodies really look like, are on a mission to help everyone do so.
