KUALA LUMPUR: Seventeen girls are vying for this year’s Miss Malaysia Universe to be held at Hotel Istana next Friday.
One of the finalists, Elaine Daly, 26, said she would take the pageant as a personal challenge and “an opportunity to pursue issues close to my heart.”
“I will champion issues relating to abused women and children,” said the model/actress from Kuala Lumpur.
A. Thanushia said she hoped to use her Indian-Chinese parentage to promote Malaysia overseas.
