Sabahan Wenanita Angang was crowned Miss Malaysia World 2022 at the Sabah International Conventional Centre (SICC) on 27th August 2022. The 26-year-old bested fourteen other delegates to win the national crown.

Wenanita was born and raised in Kota Kinabalu. She received the crown from Miss World Malaysia 2021 Dr Lavanya Sivaji. Miss World 2021 Karolina Bielawska was also present at the coronation night.



On winning Miss World Malaysia 2022 crown, Wenanita shared, "Honestly, I did not anticipate winning anything. I was just focusing on doing my best, because I don't want to regret later. When I was shortlisted for the top six round, in my mind, I just told myself to keep calm as I've already come this far. It is okay. Whatever happens now, I did my best.”

"I was happy with my performance which is all that matters to me”, she added. She also thanked her team comprising her mother, fashion designer and make-up artist as well as friends for given the encouragement. "Without their support and advice, I don't see myself succeeding at the international level," said Wenanita, who has been working as an international conference producer in Kuala Lumpur for the past 10 years.



Wenanita is going to advocate about hippotherapy, which is a form of horse-riding therapy, to rehabilitate autistic children and persons with cerebral palsy. She said she was captivated to learn how horse riding helps these children to improve their balance after listening to a briefing by doctors at the Hospital Mesra Bukit Padang here. Wenanita holds a bachelor’s degree in information science systems.

At the end of the event finale, Evelyn Ting from Sarawak was adjudged as the first runner-up while another Sabahan Anya Kimberly Kow was adjudged as the second runner-up.
