She hadn’t imagined in her wildest dreams that she would ever participate in a beauty pageant or modeling contest. As a child she dreamt of becoming a doctor however fate had different plans for her. Now she plans to get into acting. After completing her board exams, Nikita wanted to utilize her vacation by participating in the TGIF Nepal Fashion Week where she was appreciated by Former Miss Nepal Asmi Shrestha and Director of Hidden Treasure, Subarna Chhetri. It was them who motivated her to participate in the contest after which she spoke with her family and then she applied for the Miss Nepal Pageant. As we all know this turned out to be the best vacation any one would ever have and rest is History!

She has announced that the beneficiary of the donation would be Maiti Nepal which is a nonprofit organization working against human trafficking. Nikita paid a visit to Maiti Nepal with the other contestants during the training sessions of Miss Nepal. She had decided at the moment that she would want to do something for the organization which is why she had written in her diary that if she wins the title then she would donate fifty percent to the organization. It is really good to see that the beauty queen is committed to help the people in need and her decision is truly praiseworthy.
