Former beauty queen and multi-talented singer Soo Wincci has been inducted into the Malaysia Book of Records for being the first Miss World Malaysia to receive a doctorate certificate.
After six years of studying, the 31-year-old had finally received her PhD in business administration from Open University Malaysia (OUM).
“I could not control my emotions the moment I was told by my thesis supervisor that I had passed,” the singer-cum-actress said to The Star.
“For the first time in my life I cried non-stop for an hour from the memory of the six year journey to achieve my ambition of holding a doctorate,” she continued.
The convocation ceremony took place at the Putra World Trade Centre on Monday.
Soo also has a law degree from the University of Reading, UK, and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
