Miss Virginia Teen USA 2018

Himanvi Panidepu

Himanvi Panidepu from Centreville, VA is a senior at Centreville High School where she loves competing on the Centreville Varsity Track and Field Team, learning and performing Indian singing and dancing, taking an active role in her school’s clubs such as DECA, FBLA team, UNICEF, etc., working out, and volunteering in her community.

Himanvi loves engaging within her community and has completed over 800 hours of community service through numerous projects and volunteering! She plans to expand her very own platform, Happy Choices, by continuing to raise awareness on mental health issues and drug and alcohol prevention. Her parents being Indian immigrants came to the US in search of the American dream, so she believes she represents the diversity and the American spirit of setting goals and making those dreams a reality. She hopes to inspire everyone that anyone can achieve their dreams and make them a reality, no matter your race, background, or the hardships you’ve faced.
