Thatal, born to a Changki mother and a Nepali father, lost her husband in 2018 and lives in Dimapur with her two children.
She is the daughter of Bhopal Thatal, who retired as Registrar, Directorate of Fisheries, Nagaland, and her mother is from Changki Village.
She believed that the pageant gave her the platform to expose her talents and individuality. “It is not just about physical beauty, it is about strength and following your dreams,” said Thatal.
The mother of two runs a small school at Viola colony called Raindrops School and plans to expand further.
Thatal was thankful to Smart Life Gym that helped her during the preparation process for the talent and fitness rounds.
She will be representing the country in the International-level of the same pageant due to be held next year.(MExN)
