Welcome to my Site

Here’s a little more about me…


Chhavi Verg (born December 27, 1996) is a Bharatanatyam dancer, model, speaker, and beauty queen. She is best known for being Miss New Jersey USA 2017 and Miss USA 2017 First Runner-Up.

Chhavi was born in India and came to the United States with her family when she was four years old. She was brought up in Edison, NJ and went to J.P. Stevens High School. She graduated as an honors scholar and magna cum laude from Rutgers University, from where she has a Bachelor of Science in Marketing.

Chhavi has been dancing since she was four years old, and is a trained Bharatanatyam (Indian classical) dancer. Instead of having her Sweet 16, Chhavi decided to have her Arangetram, a solo on-stage performance that marks the culmination of training as an Indian classical dancer. This event follows about 10-12 years of training, and lasts around 4 hours, as it showcases many different dance pieces performed by the dancer.

When she was 19 years old, Chhavi decided to follow her passion for fitness and became an ISSA certified personal trainer to urge others to take better care of themselves both physically and mentally.

Shortly after, Chhavi won the title of Miss NJ USA 2017 and went on to become First Runner-Up at the Miss USA 2017 competition held in Las Vegas in May 2017. Since then, Chhavi has found a new passion—a love for the camera. Following her pageant career, she has been featured in a music video, on a billboard, in a magazine as well as in various online publications and commercials.

Chhavi is extremely passionate about giving back to her community and is a strong proponent of women’s equality, empowerment, and education. She lives her life by this motto, “Dream BIG. The only limits that exist are the ones you create in your head. Be sincere, give it your all, and never lose grit; that is the key to making your dreams a reality.”
