M’sian-born Sonia Sharma crowned Miss UN Ambassador
Congratulations to Sonia Sharma, a beautiful 24-year-old Penangite who has been crowned as Miss United Nations Ambassador of 2014!
“I kept reminding myself that great things come in small packages and good things did happen. I got to stand right next to the Governor-General of Jamaica during the photography sessions as I was too short to stand behind,” said Sharma as quoted by The Star.
Sharma created history by beating contestants from eighty other countries who are also a lot taller than she is.
“While my family was supportive, there were some people who told me that I should not enter because of my height. The only thing constantly on my mind was that I would be mocked if I didn’t win,” she added.
“Even though I am in Canada, I will always love Malaysia as this is where I was born and I have a grandmother here whom I am very close to,” Sharma confessed.
