Miss Grand International is one of the most prestigious international beauty pageants that takes place every year. With the campaign ‘Stop the War and Violence’, the main motto of the pageant headquartered in Thailand is to help people avoid conflict and violence that may lead to war in any form. The pageant recently took place officially for the first time in Nepal recently. Zeenus Lama bagged the title of Miss Grand Nepal 2016 on August 23rd at Hyatt Regency in Kathmandu and will be Nepal’s delegate this year at Miss Grand International and will be competing with over 80 delegates from around the world.
Zeenus had left nine other tough contenders behind to grab the title this year and was crowned by Miss Grand International 2015 Claire Elizabeth Parker in the event organized by Looks International. Along with the main title, she had also won the Miss Personality award.
Originally from Chitwan, the 24-year-old Mass Communication student, lives in Kathmandu and works as the Marketing Manager at Organic World & Fair Future. When she is not working or studying, she loves to spend time with children and elderly people. She is currently busy preparing for the international pageant that will have its coronation night on October 25th in Las Vegas, USA.
“I feel extremely proud that I will have the privilege to represent Nepal at such a prestigious platform and I will try my best to make my nation and my people proud of me”, Lama told NeoStuffs. “I am proud that the person who I am today is because of the opportunities that my beautiful country has offered me.”
UPDATE: In a recent Children’s Day event at Bal Mandir, Lama donated an amount of Rs. 70,000 to Nepal Children’s Organization that has been working to provide education and better lives to the impoverished children. Lama also shared her experiences with the children and encouraged them to dream big and work hard towards bringing them to reality.
