Victoria Pham, BS 12, will compete among a record 120 contestants in the 2011 Miss World pageant Sunday, Nov. 6 in London. The event will be broadcast live from Earls Court starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on E! and is expected to be seen by over one billion viewers in 168 countries worldwide. It can be watched live on http://dl.groovygecko.net/anon.groovy/clients/missworld/20111106/index.html
Pham, in her second year of undergraduate studies at Haas, won the national title for Vietnam on August 21 and will represent that nation at Miss World. She is already in London, competing in fitness and talent portions of the competition, as well as visiting Cambridge, Edinburgh Castle, and the London Eye.
On her Miss World profile, Pham says her future ambitions are to graduate from Berkeley-Haas and to “find a job that allows me to exercise my creativity and determination in business while still staying committed to my passion for community service and charity work.” Her personal motto? “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
Best of luck, Victoria!
