Let us stand united in our commitment to beauty, compassion, and the betterment of society."

Their experiences on this journey are poised to inspire a broader embrace of compassion among all participants."

The journey ahead for these finalists transcends the pursuit of a mere title; it is about immersing themselves in Sabah’s rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. From the pristine Mantanani Island to the heart of Sabah’s heritage, these finalists will showcase the unique facets that make Malaysia’s land so enchanting.
