She was ignored at Miss Universe and even her name at the Parade of Nations was drowned out by the cheers of Miss Venezuela's fans. She loved Missosology even posing with a small banner giving a heart sign to all Missosology readers. Her country's bureaucratic grip even on things like beauty pageants allowed her to compete one more time. Introducing Vũ Thị Hoàng My, Miss World Vietnam. She is a clapper at Miss Universe but here at Miss World 2012, she is a rising star.
Even before she arrived in Ordos, Hoang My appeared to have vastly improved. She has a better shape, felt more comfortable in her own skin and she had glowed and shined even more. Confidence perhaps is the key. Her experience in international arena boosted her morale.
At the start of Miss World, Hoang My was a bit of a wrong start. She was not in the semifinalist list of Talent and Top Model contests. Then a huge turn around. At World Fashion Designer Award, she was resplendent in her blue dress with see-through skirt. She then managed to be one of the semifinalists in the Beach Fashion contest.
The bouncing back of Hoang My speaks a lot about the valiant and persevering character of this young woman. If Vietnam places at Miss World Top 7 this year, it is not through any kind of public votes. It would be because Hoang My is improving, one step at a time.
