“I am much more ready now mentally and physically compared to when I joined before. Miss Universe Malaysia has always been my dream, but I understand how huge the responsibility is and what an honour it is to carry the title as they are known to be the spokesperson and ambassador for the country they represent, and they need to work really hard to help the community.”

She had also explained that before the finale night “The next person who carries the duty of Miss Universe Malaysia needs to know how to use her voice to make a change for her community, to voice out the issues that the country faces and relate to other relevant countries, and be the spokesperson for the people.” She is very excited and would perform her best at the Miss Universe 2020 stage.

The diva explains that she is very independent and loves to get things done her own way. She believes that when you set goals for yourself and if you really want to achieve it, you need to see the bigger picture. It’s not just being beautiful and having a crown but it is about carrying the name of your country proudly and helping your community with the platform that you have. To share the issues that your country faces with the world and make a change, create a positive impact for the people and influence them to do great things as well.
