In Her Own Words...
"Hello everyone. I’m Vivi from Xi’an, the capital city of China during the Tang Dynasty. I am the 63rd Miss China.
For me, the Miss World Pageant has a special meaning. In 2009, because I had participated in the Miss World pageant I was able to raise over 50 thousand US dollars to help rebuild a school destroyed in a mudslide near my hometown. Two years later I volunteered as an art and music teacher in a small primary school in the mountains of southwestern China. I leveraged my participation in the Miss World to create a documentary drawing attention to the need for more teachers in remote schools.
But I want to do more.
I’m here now in Indonesia as Miss China with a simple purpose, to stand on a larger platform where I can inspire and empower - on a global scale – young women like myself to help children in need."
