The most beautiful object or incident in the world to you
A stethoscope. A stethoscope allows me to listen to another person's heart - listening to the thumping and thudding of an organ makes me feel so connected to that person and reveals the complexity and beauty of the human body. I am always in awe at how a simple and exquisite device like a stethoscope can diagnose and reveal so much.

Reasons for joining the Pageant
I've wanted to be a doctor since I was 7 years old, and for the past 20 years I have studied very hard to work towards that goal. Now that I have graduated, I want to prove to myself that I can accomplish things outside of my work, that I can do anything I put my mind to. I want to perform on a big stage, pose for photoshoots, learn to catwalk - and most of all, to challenge myself to aim higher and achieve bigger.
