Miss Vietnam 2016 Do My Linh has targeted to be listed in the top five at Miss World 2017 scheduled to take place in China in November this year.

Speaking at a Wednesday press conference on the event, My Linh said this is the first time she has attended a global beauty contest, so she is a little nervous. However, she has made careful preparations and hopes that she will be listed in the top five of the contest.

She has practised hard for the contest by improving her catwalk under the guidance of stage performance by international beauty experts.

In a letter sent to My Linh, Editor-in-chief of Tien Phong Newspaper and Head of Miss Vietnam organising board Le Xuan Son, said that over the past ten years, Miss Vietnam winners have not participated in Miss World for different reasons. So, My Linh’s participation this year is a much-awaited event.

Today, October 19, My Linh will leave Vietnam for China to join the competition.

My Linh, 21, is a student of Hanoi University of Foreign Trade. She is 1.71 metres tall and weighs 52 kilos. Since being crowned in 2016, she has actively participated in social and charitable activities.
