This issue is all about living your best life despite the challenges that come your way, which explains why we have Miss Universe Malaysia 2019, Shweta Sekhon on the cover of the magazine this month. Ever since she stepped into the pageantry world four years ago, she’s been leaving her mark in the entertainment and modelling industries and we’ve seen her slowly grow into the beauty queen that she is today.
As our editor, Yang Mei Ling explains, “Despite the unfortunate events that took place during the finals in Atlanta, USA, Shweta kept her head up and earned much praise and more fans along the way.” Click here for a sneak peek of went down during our cover shoot with the lively and happy-go-lucky Shweta.
