Miss Newa Alisha BajracharyaHow would you recall the moment you were been crowned as Miss Newa 1134?
Miss Newa 1134 was my golden moment of life. My identity is my community and being acknowledged and recognized by each one of them for my passion to promote and preserve our culture and importantly my immense love and respect being raised in such a rich cultural values and traditions has to be the moment of and yes it is definitely the result of my intense hard work and dedication.

What importance do you find in organizing the event like Miss Newa?
I do not consider Miss Newa just as a simple event it is a divine celebration and of our Newar community where our cultural reflection of values, language, beliefs, customs and traditions are shared and potrayed. People view it as the system where groups are encouraging and joining hands to uplift the community and make aware people regarding the need to promote and preserve culture. It is also a platform where we stand together for a social cause.

This year, its tenth year of Miss Newa Pageant, what suggestions would you give to those who do want to be the part of the event?
Yes, I am extremely happy for the fact Miss Newa is successfully completing a decade. That’s a long run of time and still running being the best among the society with a major aim to strive and promote cultural values and tradition. I would like to ask the young girls of Newar community to be the part of this celebration for the fact there is so much to learn, care and share. You could be a role model, an encourager to the naive soul to preserve and promote Newar culture, because what I feel is the first way to preserve the culture, is to understand its importance. Making to win or not is just the format of a game. You just need to believe in yourself and give your best. You become the shining star.

What would you might never have gained or learned if you were not been the part of Miss Newa Pageant?
I believe life is a learning process and I am in a work in progressive state. Miss Newa has been a wonderful journey. I have gained numerous of eternal friendship, supporters and experiences to cherish for the whole life. There are differences in rituals among Newars found in different geographical areas and through our training session we got to share and learn almost all, completely amiable sessions concerned from respective areas refined us. To sum up I have gained the knowledge which has enhanced my confidence and passion towards my cultural preservation and social concern.

What strength and weakness do you find in Newar women in comparison to the women of other community?
Look at me! I do not think I am weaker than women compared to other community. I believe what makes someone weaker or stronger is their perception. Positive perception overrides your weakness. So all you need is change in your perception. I believe there is only one religion that is religion of love that unites us despite differences in culture, creed or color. I would say be bold and be you because you are special.
