Miss Vietnam H'Hen Niê: "Today Hen is really happy, Hen wants to hug everyone. Thank you so much."


Isang hero’s welcome ang inihanda ng mga taga-Vietnam sa pambato nila sa Miss Universe 2018 na si H’Hen Niê.

Si H’Hen Niê ang kauna-unahang kandidata mula sa Vietnam na nakapasok sa Top 5 ng prestigious international beauty pageant.

Ayon pa sa pageant experts, kung hindi lamang daw nagkamali ang kanyang interpreter sa ilang salita sa sagot niya sa question-and-answer portion, baka nakapasok ito sa Top 3 at naging mahigpit na katunggali ni Miss Philippines Catriona Gray.

Si Catriona ang hinirang na Miss Universe 2018 sa grand coronation ng 67th Miss Universe na ginanap sa Bangkok, Thailand, noong Lunes, December 17.

Samantala, napamahal naman kaagad sa mga Pinoy si Miss Vietnam dahil sa istorya ng kanyang buhay.

Kaya naman sinubaybayan ng ating mga kababayan ang kanyang buhay mula sa kanyang Miss Universe journey.

THE HOMECOMING

Kahapon, December 18, nakauwi na si H’Hen Niê sa kanyang bansa.

Sa airport pa lang, makikita na ang mainit na pagsalubong ng kanyang mga kababayan.

Sa Instagram page naman ng Miss Universe Vietnam, nakasaad sa isang post na kahit hindi nanalo sa Miss Universe 2018, panalo pa rin daw sa mga puso ng Vietnamese si H’Hen Niê.

Nakalagay sa caption: “MISS H'HEN NIÊ DONATES HER ENTIRE 1 BILLION VND (~43 000 $ US) PRIZE FOR COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES.

“After making history for Vietnam by reaching to the final Top 5 in Miss Universe 2018, H'Hen Nie has received a total 1-billion-VND (~43 000 $ US) prize from various sponsors as well as her managing company.

“She's decided to donate 100% of her prize for social activities.

"She wants to complete her promise with her village to provide scholarships for poor students and complete her social project Room to Read (build more libraries in rural areas, support schoolgirls around the world).

"Such an amazing act of her #MissUniverse #Vietnam #HHenNie.”

Sa isa pang post, sinabing napaiyak daw ang beauty queen sa mainit na pagtanggap sa kanya ng mga kababayan.
