For medical student Dhivya Dhyana, her most interesting life experience was helping to provide emergency medical relief aid to a remote village in the aftermath of the devastating Nepal earthquake.
“It was a long and tiring process but the look on the villagers’ faces, when they knew that someone was there to take care of them, treat them and show some love, was priceless,” she said.
For Dhivya, the experience reflected her own passion for studying medicine, which arose from the joy she felt when helping and caring for others.
Dhivya, who was born in Auckland, New Zealand and now resides in Kuala Lumpur, dreams of becoming a doctor and perhaps running her own hospital someday.
She hopes to make a difference in the healthcare system by making it more affordable and accessible to everyone, especially in underprivileged societies.
Her noble intentions are also reflected in her real reason for wanting to become The Next Miss Universe Malaysia for 2016.
“I grew up watching prestigious beauty queens such as Sushmita Sen use this platform for great humanitarian work and I hope to gain enough confidence and strength to use beauty for a good cause,” said Dhivya.
Dhivya loves getting involved in community outreach projects and her interests include classical Indian singing, various classical Indian and modern dances, as well as baking.
