Miss Singapore International 2023
My name is Chavelle Chong, a Year 2 student pursuing a degree in real estate at the National University of Singapore. I am passionate about sustainable urban planning to shape a greener future for generations as I believe that the choices we make today can have a profound impact on the world we leave behind. I am also interested in entrepreneurship and adore the thrill of roller coasters and the spontaneity of adventures.
Apart from my academic interests, I am a mental wellness advocate. Through the Singapore Women's Association's laughter yoga sessions, I've seen how positivity and mindfulness can boost mental health. To further this cause, I have also developed a card game aimed at raising awareness about mental health, hoping to contribute to a more open and supportive dialogue surrounding mental wellness.
The unique proposition of Miss International is the promotion of key virtues - charity, goodwill and grace. Personality plays a larger role than looks for this particular pageant where integrity is integral.
Miss International established a “Miss International Foundation” which aids underprivileged children through various beneficiaries like UNICEF and other charity institutions.
Young women are groomed to be female ambassadors and learn from experience to be pillars of society by upholding the time-tested honour of sharing. Various Miss Internationals have undertaken roles to be mentors in their own fields and embarked on personal journeys to be involved in charity and pay it forward with their skills and talents.
Miss Singapore International will represent Singapore on an International platform with 84 contestants around the world. The exchanges and exposure aim to bring forth more women to anchor a role in the society with a charitable approach, grace, integrity and honour. We hope that future generations of women will play a part in holding the flag high by extending themselves in their lifetime.
Miss Supranational is a unique title that has started in Poland in 2009. SWA has been sending Singapore representatives to Miss Supranational since 2015. Annually there are 74 contestants internationally in Poland. The winner drives awareness with appearances for causes with animal conservatories/ children with HIV and other meaningful work to highlight world issues. A lot of spotlights has been given to Miss Supranational despite its short history as it has made its way to present the Queens in events in Cannes and many TV media productions.
It is an honour for SWA to hold the rights to Miss Supranational as it is aligned with our Charity element and it has given plenty of exposure to our Singapore representatives annually.
