Olivia is Miss Earth Sabah 2011

 

 

KOTA KINABALU:

Gracefully poised with brains to match, Olivia Vun Kai Li  was crowned Miss Earth Sabah 2011.

The 19 year old beat 11 other finalists with her impressive command of  environmental issues,  coupled with looks that made her among the crowd  favourite.

A pre-university matriculation graduate here, Vun had also  won a subsidiary title, Miss Eco-Brainy Agro-Ecologic, prior to the final held  at the 1Borneo Grand Ballroom.

Vun bagged a cash prize of RM6,000, tiara and trophy.

Runner-up  was Kieren Laurent Simon while  Crystel Eve Huminodun Majinbon    and Venessa Samantha Maniwas were placed third and  fourth.   They were also  awarded the titles of Miss Earth Sabah-Air, Miss Earth Sabah-Water and Miss  Earth Sabah-Fire respectively.

The top three winners will  represent  the state at the Miss Earth Malaysia 2011 pageant to be held in Ipoh, Perak  later this month.

The previous two national titles have been consecutively won by Sabahans  —  Madelyne Nandu and Appey Rowena Januin.

Vun said the win was  unexpected.

“I was shocked because there were so many contestants  with  potential. This is my first time entering a beauty pageant, so of course I  never expected to win.”

On her  plans, Vun said she had received a scholarship to study  overseas.

“I have not decided on pursuing my studies though,” she said,  adding that her initial plan was to take up a degree in special education.
