There is no tool more effective than the empowerment of women – Kofi Annan
It is also a show that has a massive impact on thousands of women out there who are watching the brilliant ladies represent their respective countries while embracing their individuality, at the same time empowering those around them.
With that, Mrs Malaysia World has returned with a new season and is looking for a new heir to don their coveted crown.
In the efforts of championing women’s empowerment, approximately 17 finalists were shortlisted out of 35 participants who participated in the Mrs Malaysia World’s audition.
The audition kicked off on August 14, 2022, at Berjaya Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
Mrs Malaysia World’s mission is to empower these women to inspire their peers, family and community. This is so because we do not want to produce models but to produce role models.
“We are proud of our participants and this marks the start of their journey in inspiring other women out there. These women are the change elements and voice for the rest of the women in championing women empowerment and financial freedom,” quoted Datin Harveen Kaur, the National Director of Mrs Malaysia World.
These are the amazing panel of judges of Mrs World Malaysia; Charles Mohan (CEO of Institut Onn Ja’afar, News Anchor-ntv7), Nurhayati Zainol Abidin (Founder & CEO of Yatie Kitchen), Priyaa Simmi (Mrs Malaysia Worls 2019/20, Mrs Malaysia World Charity Queen 2019, Mrs Malaysia World 2021, Mrs World Top 15, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist), Nisha Ayub (Co-Founder & Project Director SEED Malaysia and Justice for Sisters) and Lila Ruzaini (Mrs Malaysia World 1st Runner Up 2018, Mrs Malaysia World Charity Queen, Ambassador, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist)
The finalists will be selected on the basis of their talents, attitudes, confidence, charisma, and skills.
All the participants will undergo 2 months of training for grooming, mental health, self-defence, community services, stage practices and wellness. This year’s grand finals will take place on October 29 at the Berjaya Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
The winner who will be crowned this year will stand a chance to represent Malaysia being fully sponsored in the Mrs World pageant which will be held in Vegas.
One of the participants who is competing for the title expressed “It’s always a proud moment for us knowing that Malaysian women are capable of everything and anything they set their minds and hearts on,”
According to another participant, this pageant is aligned with what she has been fighting for breaking stereotypes and unlearning the stigma that the old society has forced on women for decades.
In 2019, Mrs Malaysia World Sdn Bhd received legal trademark registration, making it the First-ever beauty pageant firm recognised in Malaysia for married women, regardless of status.
All the best to the 17 beauties!
