Nominated as Malaysia’s Miss Universe 2019 as the world celebrates International Women’s Day, Shweta plans to champion the issue of women’s empowerment and self-confidence.
In her press conference at the Majestic Hotel, she said “There’s a lot of women out there who aren’t very confident about themselves. So I want to be an icon and tell them to just embrace yourselves.”
“Be confident of who you are.”
The 68th edition of Miss Universe 2019 will be held in South Korea, and Malaysians will, of course, be banking on Shweta.
Go Shweta! Make us proud!
