Miss Chinese Vancouver 2009 Eliza Sam. She has a sweet smile and is very hardworking and diligent. I especially admire her persistence in learning and practicing Cantonese.
Which bodily parts are you most satisfied with
My eyes. Every morning when I wake up and look in the mirror, the seemingly laughing eyes and sparkles fill my life with hope.
Do you have any expectations towards the Pageant
I hope to discover more of my talents while training for the Pageant and gain experiences to empower myself to give back to the community.
What areas do you want to better yourself
I want to achieve the status of “inner peace”, a disposition free from the effect of discord and stress, which allows me to listen attentively to voices from all walks of life with the purpose of discovering the ultimate value and then disseminating it to the whole world.
Reasons for joining the Pageant
I love working in media and I hope that the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant can provide me with a greater platform to challenge myself.
What do you think is the most beautiful
I think a pure, innocent and bright smile is the most beautiful thing in the world. I have seen that kind of smile once during my trip to Tibet several years ago where I met a young girl whose innocent and dazzling smile touched my heart. Although she did not live a privileged and rich life, I could feel her true happiness shining through her smile.
Who is your female role model and why
My mother. Aside from balancing family and her career, she also participates in charity works.
Why do you think you will excel at this Pageant and be crowned Miss Chinese Vancouver
I have a wise and kind heart, warm and dazzling smile, and the mindset to become a successful and good person.
If you won this contest, how, as Miss Chinese Vancouver, would you contribute to the society and the world
Through my own kindness and passion, I would participate in more charity activities to give back to society.
