The tallest of the 16 contestants this year, she walks away as this year’s reigning queen continuing the tradition as a tall Miss Universe Singapore winner following the footsteps of past winners such as Valerie Lim (179cm).
During her interview session, the question posed to her was “If a footballer could make a lot of money, would you allow your son be a footballer in place of future education?” Ideally she would try to find a balance in education and football since education helps one in critical thinking skills. However, if her son has a passion for football she would support it.
Shi Lim was crowned by last year’s Miss Universe Singapore Lynn Tan.
