On the 7th of October I had the pleasure of attending the official announcement of the Top 14 finalist of the upcoming Miss Universe Malaysia 2016. It was on that date that I met ladies who really proved to me that there is such a thing as “beauty with a purpose”!
Miss Universe Malaysia 2016, Top 14 Finalists Announcement
Since a queen is going to be crowned for the title of Miss Universe Malaysia 2016, it was a no brainer that the event be hosted in a palace…the Palace of the Golden Horses, a 4.5 stars hotel located just around Serdang area.
The event emcee kick-started the program by inviting Carey Ng who was Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 on stage to give a few words. Carey Ng currently serves as the National Director of Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation. She was then followed by the reigning Miss Universe Malaysia, Vanessa Tevi.
Of the 14 contestants, the youngest is 21 years of age and the oldest is 27. What caught my eye though was how diverse their interests are. One finalist hopes to start a pet café in the future, another is a medicine student and there was even a finalist who’s a Taekwondo enthusiast.
This year Malaysia Aids Foundation (MAF) will be the main benefactor of the funds raised by the Miss Universe Malaysia Organization (MUMO). This collaboration aims to raise funds and create awareness on the prevention of HIV/AIDS transmission amongst young women. The main sponsors are Fashion Valet and MyMotor.
All the best ladies, as Rihanna says “shine bright like a diamond”!!
