Representing the nation of Laos in Shanghai last week at the Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2016 Contest, Varissara “May” Tangsouvanh put her country on the international spotlight by taking home the highly coveted Miss Friendship Title.
First Model Lao’s First International Award
Although she did not receive the Miss Tourism Queen crown, a prestige bestowed upon the contestant from Chile, this young lady made history by having been the first Lao person to enter the pageant. Premier modeling agency, First Modeling Lao, is especially proud to have been part of this grand achievement.
Lao Culture In the International Spotlight
Showcasing Lao culture with a magnificent traditional Lao costume and a dashing red evening gown on stage, Tangsouvanh made her family, friends and country extremely proud. Both judges and audience members were quite taken aback by her beauty, poise and grace.
Promoting Lao Tourism
Tangsouvanh had outshined 54 other participating countries in the pageant to win the Miss Friendship Title. The contest also serves as a platform to educate and promote tourism and cultural exchange among the participating delegates, the Miss Tourism International has grown to be the proverbial vehicle; capturing the essence of the host country and its way of life through the eyes of these beauties.
