Anchilee Scott Kemmis (pic), a 22-year-old Thai-Australian beauty who won the hearts of judges and Thais, has been crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2021.
At the pageant finale held at Pattaya’s Nong Nooch Tropical Garden on Sunday night, Thai-African Tharina Botes was the runner-up while Nanthiya Suwansawaeng placed third.
After being crowned, Anchilee happily told reporters that she was proud to represent Thai women and was grateful for all the support.
“Since participating in the contest, I have been proud to represent women. The question-and-answer part of the pageant did not scare me as I always responded with honesty.
“I believe my willpower and sincerity won me the crown. The best part is that I can make my parents proud,” Anchilee said.
When asked about being ready to compete on the world stage in December at the Miss Universe 2021 pageant in Eilat city, Israel, Anchilee voiced confidence that she was ready, but said she would like to improve her stage walk.
The new beauty queen said she had less than three weeks to prepare, but was confident in her ability to bring the international crown home. — The Nation/ANN
