She was a brilliant student with outstanding grades in her school. Hence, her parents wanted her to study medicine. Nikita Chandak, however, constructed a different path for herself. Her struggle of leaving her family business to entering the fashion industry was not smooth. Yet she embarked on a journey that she prized and never stopped chasing her dreams.

She was choosing a path that defied her family norms. She graduated from JD Institute of Fashion Technology in Bangalore. That was the beginning of her modeling career.
Nikita came to Kathmandu for the first time to participate in Nepal Fashion Week last year. She then got to know about The Hidden Treasure, Miss Nepal and decided to participate in it. Amidst numerous debates and discussions about the beauty pageant and her identity, we now know her as the Miss Nepal, 2017.
