A girl from Thailand, Srisupa Kesawapitak was crowned the Little Miss United World 2019 Grand Prix title. As for the boys’ category, the Little Mister United World 2019 Grand Prix title goes to Karlis-Kristaps Jaunzems from Latvia. 

Although the sisters did not win the grand award title, they have certainly created history and made our country proud. At such a young age, Ilyn and Elyn were able to represent Malaysia at a world stage event and walk off as winners for different categories. It was the first time a Malaysian delegate achieved such an achievement at the prestigious children’s competition.

Beginning from the interview session to all the rehearsals and training, they worked hard and gave their best to receive these outstanding achievements. The young girls had to go through and endure different assessments and experiences, from being subjected to challenging interviews, discovering new friendships, participating in cultural exchanges, going through intense training and undergoing various rehearsals from catwalk to talent.

Throughout their journey, the pair were mentored by the founder and organiser of Little Miss Malaysia, Jessie Foo, who is also a professional Latin American & Ballroom instructor at Dance V Me dancing academy. With Jessie’s properly regulated and structured program, Ilyn and Elyn were able to prepare themselves for the competition in under 4 months!
