The ladies then proceeded with their Q&A where they had to share about the platform that they support, as well as their answer to their chosen question.

#7 Joey Ong

Her Platform:

Cancer Society, she wants to organize events to raise awareness. "No one needs to fight cancer alone, I will be there for you!"

Her Question: 
What bothers you most about the happenings in our Country and why?

Her Answer: 

I feel that Singapore is a great country and it is developing well. My only concern would be the education opportunities being offered at our local universities. Based from my experience, a friend of mine who became a doctor (who had a diploma then from a polytechnic, but could only pursue a medical course in overseas) Hence I feel that there should be a slight change in the eligibility for certain courses. 

#8 Jasmine Lim

Her Platform:

I believe it is my time to bring hope, to raise awareness and to gather more volunteers to join me and help the underprivileged children. Daughters of tomorrow is to empower these underprivileged children. Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do so much more.

Her Question:

As a modern woman in the 21st Century, which of the 4 would you choose out of Beauty, Wealth, Love and Education? Explain why.

Her Answer:

I will choose love. Love can be in a form of passion. When you have passion in your career, you will have the spirit of essence and you won't feel that working is a chore. When you have passion and you're pursuing your education, you will find it an easy task as you have that love. You can have all the wealth in the world and when you have no love, there will be no joy. If you have the knowledge of education but you have no love, you will not know how to give back. I choose love, because love never fails. 

#4 Rachel Pang

 Her Platform:

My platform goes out to the underprivileged orphans. As a mum, it breaks my heart to see these orphans growing up without a happy childhood. I will be setting up an outreach program which will reach out to the Non-Government Aided Orphanages in the region. As Mrs Singapore World, I will use the power of Social Media, and my influence to reach out to married women out there to stand forward as volunteers and also calling for donations on daily necessities and educational materials for the orphanage.

Her Question:

If you were to win Mrs Singapore World tonight, how will this make a difference to your future and explain why?

Her Answer: 

If I were to win, I will become an influencer who can be a voice and influence married women out there. As I myself have already stepped out and stood tall on this stage to show everyone that I can do it as a Mother, a Boss, a Wife and as a friend. So life would be very different and exciting if I were to be crowned. Hopefully, I wil be able to use that voice to do more great and give back to the community. 

#10 Dwi Lestari

Her Platform:

My Platform would be the Darul Ihsan Orphanage where they have 2 centres for the boys and girls respectively. I believe that children who come from all ages, backgrounds and countries deserve the best childhood ever as every child is the future of tomorrow.

Her Question: 

If one of your friend is experiencing marriage failure, what kind of advice would you give them in order for them to reconcile?

Her Answer:

The advice I will give to all married couples would be - Compromise. The one one and only thing why I feel that every marriage should exist is because of compromising. There's always ups and downs, nothing is ever perfect but if we manage to resolve any kind of issues within ourselves and show good example towards our kids. I believe that compromise is always the answer to any kind of problem.

#2 Sheena Vaswani

Her Platform:

I believe every woman is beautiful and when given the opportunity to shine, she can make a difference not only in her life but the life of the family and the society she lives in. With that, I would like to represent AIDHA as Mrs Singapore World 2017/18. An organization that empower women of lower income as well as foreign domestic workers through education. It is good to support women and show them to be loved, but it is more remarkable to teach them how to love themselves and how to make an impact together.

Her Question:

How do you balance between your career, marriage, family and social life?

Her Answer:

Being a married woman in the 21st century, women are not only nurturers to take care of our unit but we are also equal providers to support our husbands in providing for our family expenses. So with that, we play many different roles of being a loving mother, a devoted wife and an independent career woman. The balance I would like to strike between all these areas is to understand that I can do everything but I can't do everything, everyday. It starts with Prioritising. And of cos, balancing starts at home. Balancing the Marriage, the Family, the Social Life then the Career. Career and Social Network are changing with time to evolve, but Family and your Marriage is never changing so they take priority.

#5 - Hui Zhen

Her Platform:

My Platform is to help the beneficiaries of the Cancer Foundation. As a mother of 5, it is very heartbreaking to see children being diagnosed with cancer at a young age with no exact cause. I hope to this the title to influence people on a much larger scale, to contribute not only on the financial aspect but also on time; on a weekly basis to befriend these cancer patients.

Her Question:

One day, when you wake up, you find that your body has been swapped. Who's body would you want to swap with and why?

Her Answer: 

My Father or Father In Law. Being born a woman in this lifetime, it would be interesting to have a body of a man and to be able to look at things from a man's perspective as well as to understand their process of thoughts. Why them, as they both play an important role in my life so I would like to be in their shoes to see how they would actually juggle with providing for the family as well as to show love for the family members at home. 

#11 - Evelyn Tan 

Her Platform:

To save children internationally. I lost my elder brother when I was 12, leaving a pair of young children leaving with us. Now that I'm a mother of 2, I cannot imagine children who grew up without parents & parents who lost their children. As Mrs Singapore World, I would like to raise public awareness and gather more mothers to come together and organize meaningful and interesting events, mission trips to provide emotional and educational support. I believe that women may be weak, but mothers are strong.

Her Question:

As a modern day married woman in the 21st Century, what is your biggest challenge and why?

Her Answer:

We are juggling between our career, marriage, family as well as our social life. I think that my biggest challenge is this. In fact we all face the same challenge as we can see that from young, till the day we step into society, we are our dearest daughters to our parents. After we work, our bosses set their expectations. After we get married, we become Wives of hubbies who we want to make them proud too and after that, we are Mothers and we need to take care of our children. Hence, I believe that this is the challenge in terms of juggling between these different aspects.

#16 Dorcas Tan

Her Platform:

My heart goes out to the children in Cambodia. As such, part of our company's profits goes into supporting them for free education and food. If I were to be crowned, I will use this opportunity to rally more support for this meaningful cause.

Her Question:

What are the best morals and values a parent can share with children and why?

Her Answer: 

This is going out to my 3 girls especially. Kindness. If you're kind, you will be able to treat each other really well and arguments will stop. I will teach them integrity; to say what they mean and mean what they say. Through that, they will be able to build a meaningful and trustworthy relationship. Respect, to show respect for the elders. You need to learn how to respect the elders before others respect you.

And.. that's it with the Q&A!

Can't believe, that's the end of Mrs Singapore World 2017/18. 

It has been a pleasure watching all the 18 beautiful ladies, transforming to the best version of themselves.

Although I didn't manage to speak to every single one of you, I saw many things through your actions.

I congratulate every single one of you, for you have made it to the Grand Finals and you're a winner yourself! 

It was heartwarming to watch all of your family members and friends shouting and screaming in Joy to support you on stage.

These women on stage, they not only walk the walk - but they walk the talk as Mothers, Wives, Daughters and Bosses. 

Every single one of you shined on stage.

To the newly crowned queens, enjoy your reign & keep doing good no matter what happens.

And of cos, I would like to congratulate the Organizing Committee of Mrs Singapore World for completing yet another breath-taking Pageant.

As an Events Planner myself, to see the amount of effort on the tech & light just for the ladies, I'm more than impressed. To have the LED Panels catered just for the ladies' beautiful pictures, and letting everyone of them shining in their beautiful gowns!

Although it's the last pageant of the year of 2017, I truly enjoyed watching and getting to know all of you ladies for you shared, inspired me throughout your pageant journey.

It's been a blast, and a huge blessing for me to know so many of you through these pageants. 

Forging friendships beyond the coronation night.

Thank you so much for all the support & messages too - I truly appreciate it!

May we cross paths again, till the very next pageant x
