THREE aspiring models from Sarawak did the state proud at the recent Miss Malaysia Model of the World 2010 in Ipoh.
Edwina Yong, 22 a student at the Curtin University of Technology Sarawak campus in Miri, grabbed the International Model of the Year Award as well as the subsidiary title of Miss Model Best Personality.
With the feat, she will be representing the country in the International Model of the World 2010 (IMOTY) pageant in South Korea later this year.
The three models had participated in the Sarawak leg of the pageant in July this year which was organised by Miri’s The Room Production.
The other two state representatives, Christina Wong, 22, from Sibu and Yvonne Supang Lukas, 21, from Miri, were among the top 10 finalists in the national level pageant.
Yvonne also won the Miss Model Best Talent and was the second runner-up of the Miss Model Beautiful Legs category.
Wong hoped to discover more talents in the state including helping to promote Sarawak on the world map.
