Evita Delmundo is Top 50 at Miss Universe Malaysia 2018
The Sabah native, who was born with moles all over her body, will compete in the Miss Universe Malaysia 2018 beauty pageant
In June, the 20-year-old Sabahan rose to fame when it became known that she auditioned for the beauty pageant. She also told us at the time about how she learned how to embrace her unique appearance growing up, despite frequently being criticised.
"I feel [it's going to be] more challenging and I'm excited and nervous," Evita said as we spoke to her this evening. She was alerted by a mention of her on Instagram, and saw the good news on the Miss Universe Malaysia feed. It's still unclear what Evita and the rest of the Top 50 will be up to for the next stage of the competition.
"It's always been a dream for me to try out for Miss Universe Malaysia," she explained to ELLE in June. "I feel like it's a good way for me to showcase my uniqueness and newfound confidence, and hopefully I can also inspire others."
No doubt Evita will have many cheering for her throughout the pageant. Congratulations to everyone in the Top 50!
