I’d like to have dinner with Angelina Jolie. As we all know, not only is she a great beauty, but also she is famous for her humanitarian work. She uses her resources and fame to help children and women who are in need. I think she is one of the most beautiful souls in the world.
What would be your dream job?
I want to become a world famous humanitarian who inspires and fights for equality and supports women’s rights.
If you could work with any fashion designer, who would it be and why?
During my participation in Singapore’s “Haute Couture” fashion week, I was privileged to wear a wonderful design and to bring life to it on the stage. The piece was made by renowned Chinese designer Guo Pei. Her designs are very elegant and tell a great story. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would happily do it again.

I can’t live without lipstick. I think lips are the most powerful weapon of a women’s beauty.
Mac or PC?
Sweet or Savory?
Both. I enjoy both flavours.
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
I’d like to have the powers of Captain Planet; healing, mending and resurrecting the Mother Earth. I’d heal all the wounds and mend all the undone things.
Which Challenge Events do you feel most confident about?
I feel most confident about the Top Model Challenge as I have 5 years of working experience and participated in many modelling contests in Asia with great success.
Why did you enter Miss World?
Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamt of representing my home country at Miss World. Now I have the opportunity to fulfil my dream. Participating in Miss World, I will be one step closer to achieving my goal which is to become role model for young girls. This contest will enrich my life and I will gain valuable experience. Fulfilling my dream, gaining experience and sharing what I learned with others are my main purpose of entering Miss World.
