The 22-year-old Burmese model beat 24 other contestants to win the coveted beauty title and earn the right to represent her country at the Miss Earth 2019 pageant in the Philippines this coming October.
Shwe Chuu Ngone (Innwa) was crowned as Miss Earth Teen Myanmar 2019 while Linn Thadar (Yangon West), Zun Zin Zin Tun (Minbu), and Aye Myat Noe Aung (Pyin Oo Lwin) were Miss Air Myanmar, Miss Fire Myanmar, and Miss Water Myanmar, respectively.
Other winners in the glittering competition were Miss Global City Myanmar 2019 Sam (Bagan), Miss Eco-Tourism Myanmar 2019 Alice Sharr (Yangon East), and Miss Glamorous Myanmar 2019 Mv Lay (Sagaing). Shwe Sin Ei Phyu (Magway) was the first runner-up.
Myanmar first joined the Miss Earth competition in 2014. The country is yet to have its first placement in the pageant.
