Namaste, My name is jhanvi Bhatt. The first name coming from the 108 names of ganga and surname represnting my land of Origin, Uttrakhand, India.

I was born and brought up in Delhi and have changed about 10 schools in 13 years of my schooling life, being in 4 different countries. I have lived in UAE for 3 years and in Oman for 2 years. This diversified range has helped me be who I am today. Living in New Zealand for two years, being independent, living on my own and managing my own expenses and bills.

I currently reside in Papatoetoe and Study in Ormiston Senior College. I am the CEO of my business company running for YES Competition. I am also a dancer who performed at polyfest and rockers this year and led my group. My hobbies include sketching, painting, singing and have received various awards for them at a young age in India.

Miss India NZ is a way through which I could show the world that adaption, womanhood and leadership are my 3 best skills and I would love to add on to the cultural twist of being a kiwi Indian. It is a stage of impacting people and performing for your two favourite countries at the same time.
