During the glittering coronation night of Miss Golden Land Myanmar 2018 held tonight at Taw Win Garden Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar, Shwe Eain Si representing Rakhine was crowned as the new queen.
Shwe will now represent Myanmar at the Miss Supranational 2018 scheduled to take place in Poland this coming December. 19 year-old Shwe is a popular celebrity, model and a social media influencer with over 500,000 followers in her fan pages.
Twenty candidates competed for the title but only the Top 10 moved further in the competition. Initially only Top 9 were announced but one more delegate was included as the People’s Choice Award and it was the eventual winner Shwe Eain Si. She also bagged the Miss Elegance award.
Reigning Miss Supranational 2017, Jenny Kim from Korea took part in the event as one of the judges.
Originally from Yangon, Shwe lived in London, United Kingdom for over 5 years. Last year, she was stripped of her previous pageant title after posting a video accusing the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) of causing the violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
