“I am so honoured to be crowned as Miss World Singapore 2019. This has been an incredible journey and I met the nicest people along the way,” Cher posted on Instagram.
“The Miss World Singapore Organisation has created an amazing platform for all of us young women to be empowered to create positive change in our society. I want to use this opportunity to reach out to children suffering from brain tumours, to help raise awareness for those in need. I will embark on this journey and do my best to represent Singapore on the world stage!”
