Half-Pinay Evita Patcey Edgar Del Mundo recently made a buzz when she auditioned for the Miss Universe – Malaysia 2018. Not only Malaysians and Filipinos but the whole world was surprised by her confidence and determination, seemingly to redefine conventional beauty.
This twenty-year-old lady from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, is not your typical beauty queen. Her whole body, including her face, is filled with moles, as she was diagnosed with Giant Congenital Melanocytic Nevus, a rare skin condition that is caused by the irregular production of melanin by the body.
“The girls at the registration counter were surprised when they saw me. They told me I was brave to try out for an audition and wished me luck,” Evita said in an interview and told the press how she was bullied when she was young. “I use to cry and blame fate for the way I was born but when I entered high school it all turned for the better. People were more accepting of who I am, I had friends and I became more confident in myself.”

Isn’t she beautiful?
What do you think? She really deserves the crown, isn’t she? Because the real beauty hides beneath all our scars, proving how strong we are no matter what the situation is.
