Sheena had successfully beat out two other contestants in the finale including Jodilly Pendre dan Katarina Rodriguez from the Philippines in the last episode, which aired on Star World yesterday night. Jodily was the runner up, and Katarina in third place.
The top three faced two final challenges in the finale. They went through a photo shoot challenge in Kuala Terengganu and their task was to reflect the ‘Kampong’ life through their photos.
After the photo shoot, they flew back to Kuala Lumpur for their runway challenge, where they modeled the designs of Ghea Panggabean and Albert Andrada.
Sheena wins a three-month contract with Storm Model Management in London, a chance to appear in a spread and on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore/Malaysia, cash prize from FOX International Broadcast, Subaru XV car and becoming TRESemme model for its 2014 campaign.
Admitting that she had two very tough competitors, Sheena said she was her own harshest critic. She said she hopes her victory will serve as an inspiration to people and make Malaysian girls realize that they can also be international as long as they dream, The Star reported.
