Woman Who Was Called 'Monster' For Her Moles Can Be Crowned The Next Miss Universe

This 20-year-old young Malaysian woman living on the Island of Borneo, Ave Evita Patcey Delmundo, was born with hairy black and brown moles from head-to-toe. Throughout her primary school, she was bullied and branded as 'monster' and 'chocolate chip cookie' by her classmates. "That was a very difficult thing to swallow," she said in an interview taken by The ELLE Magazine. However, later in the school, the bullying reduced because her mother was one of the teachers there, and she got support from other teachers as well. But the main issue still remained. She was not able to accept herself as she was.

The Independent spoke to Evita, and she said that things changed when she was 16, while visiting a church camp- that was where she realised that she should accept herself as she was. However, a couple of times, she considered removing some overt moles, but the doctors said this could be life threatening. 

That was when she totally accepted herself.

So what is beauty exactly?

So what is beauty exactly?

Beauty is something that's a very subjective issue. We cannot fit beauty in a particular frame. But, ironically, we have been imposed with certain preconceived notions of beauty where everyone is trying to fit in. And this is something really weird! Africans have a different idea of beauty from Asians, Caucasians have a different idea of beauty from Latin Americans. 

There is no set norm. It's all in your eyes, what you like.

So when Evita decided to give a damn to these preconceived notions, she started feeling happy and complete in herself. And that was indeed, a brave step.

"Beauty is not just what's on the outside; it's not someone with the perfect face or the perfect body. Beauty is who you are as a person and how you love yourself. It's never about perfection."

In the interview to ELLE, she has given advice to all those who are insecure about their appearances. "None of us are born perfect, and all of us have our own strengths and weaknesses. So don't see any of your flaws as a barrier to achieving what you want. At the end of the day, everyone has something special about them, so be proud of whatever makes you 'YOU'.
