In a world so consumed by our desire to look perfect, Evita Delmundo is a breath of fresh air. Despite having moles all over her body, the 20-year-old beauty auditioned for Miss Universe Malaysia 2018.
While there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with how she looks, we all know that when it comes to thinking outside the box, pageants have a lot of work to do. Their empowering message needs to extend beyond a certain “look.” Evita told ELLE Malaysia, “Beauty is not just what's on the outside; it's not someone with the perfect face or the perfect body. Beauty is who you are as a person and how you love yourself. It's never about perfection.”
Evita also recalled the time she considered having her moles removed, but the doctors advised against it: “I just had to accept that this is the body I've been given. I really learned how to love myself and communicate with others. This was probably the first time I truly started accepting who I was, how I look.”
Good luck, Evita! <3
