Among our ASEAN neighbors, there are still nations that remain unplaced in Miss Universe – and no, it doesn’t include Malaysia because they already got one back in the 70s. I’m referring to Cambodia and Laos.
Cambodia is pinning its hopes on a lovely Cambodian-French to do the honors of at least making it to the first cut in our favorite beauty pageant. And Manita Hang is ready to show her best self come January in New Orleans. She is also getting pasarela training from an Indian coach, in addition to her initial sessions at Kagandahang Flores a couple of months backs.
Will her efforts be good enough to merit attention from the judges and the organization? Let’s wait and see.
Manita and her National Costume for the 71st Universe
Our low-key ASEAN neighbors are starting to step up in its efforts to shine in international pageantry.
Take for example Manita Hang, a 23 year-old Khmer-French beauty who was just crowned Miss Universe Cambodia 2022 and will represent her country in the 71st edition of Miss Universe that should happen by year’s end. An Accounting & Finance graduate from the CamEd Business School in Phnom Penh, she speaks Khmer, English and French fluently. She stands somewhere between 5’5”-5’6”.
Watch her winning performance below.
Gorgeousness abounds in our part of the world. At the end of the day, preparations will spell the difference between winning and/or placing in Miss Universe. Is Cambodia ready for the big leagues?
