Miss Universe Malaysia 2017 is Samantha Katie James
Samantha Katie James was crowned Miss Universe Malaysia 2017. The Chinese-Brazilian model and aspiring actress from Kuala Lumpur took center stage as she accepted the award.
After the competition, she told Malaysian Digest, “The only thing that I had and I kept telling myself was to keep believing in what I wanted and keep visualising that I will be there, and I finally reached my dreams. I joined this before when I was 18, and I did not make it. I wasn’t ready then but I knew this time around that I’m ready and I’m here now,”
She was discovered as a model when she was 17-years-old and since then, Samantha has walked the runways internationally, appeared in TV commercials and had even acted in an Indonesian and Chinese film production.
