Miss Cambodia Organization held its press conference to announce Cambodia’s representatives to their franchised international pageants on 20th May 2018. Keo Seng Lyhour was appointed Miss Earth Cambodia 2018 as she became the official representative of Cambodia at Miss Earth 2018.

Cambodia has not been an active participant at Miss Earth pageant. Though it debuted it 2005, the only two representations come from that year and then 2016 to now. With Keo Seng being designated the national title, there is hope that Cambodia pioneers its win at Miss Earth pageant.

On being announced the official representative, Keo Seng pointed out, “I’m not 100 percent ready — but I can say maybe I’m around 90 percent ready to face the competition. And I believe that this year could possibly be the year when Asian contestants can challenge the status quo, which is mostly dominated by contestants from South America.”

From Phnom Penh, Keo Seng completed her studies from Paññasastra University of Cambodia. Keo participated in Miss Cambodia 2017 where she ended up being the first runner-up.

On being confident of an Asian woman winning the title, she points out, “The reason is quite simple, what sets us apart is our sincerity – which I strongly believe makes all Cambodian women distinctively beautiful”.

Other titles were also given at the press conference - Long Punleu was designated the title of Miss Asia Pacific Cambodia 2018. She will represent Cambodia at Miss Asia Pacific International 2018. Kha Annchhany was announced Miss Chinese World 2018 and Thoung Mala was presented with the title of Miss Chinese World 2018, Siem Reap.
