Ms Jennifer Ling Coosemans was crowned the winner over stiff competition from 13 other contestants on Saturday night (Jan 23) at TVB City in Tseung Kwan O, Hong Kong.
The newly-crowned winners of Miss Chinese International 2016, Jennifer Coosemans, Mary Chen, Tiana Luan, and Alice Wong, met with the press yesterday, reports Jaynestars.
Vancouver-native Jennifer expressed that she is still feeling excited about her win.
She added that all the contestants delivered great performances on the night of the pageant finals. First runner-up was Ms Mary Chen, a 18-year-old college student from New York, and second runner-up was awarded to Ms Tiana Luan, 23, from Sydney.
On her daily beauty regimen, Jennifer revealed that she consumes vitamin pills, especially Vitamin A and Vitamin E, which contain many skin benefits.
Jennifer said, “I take at least one vitamin pill every day, and it usually contains both Vitamin A and Vitamin E. When preparing for the beauty contest this time, I made use of whatever gaps I had in between rehearsals to do sit-ups and other simple workouts. This helps me keep slim. During the competition, I was quite stressed so I tried to pour that energy into keeping fit. I am going to train to maintain my current body shape.”
Jennifer was then asked to comment on the recent unexpected chilly temperatures in Hong Kong, which produced light frost. She said that she had never expected winter in Hong Kong to be this cold, but she was well-prepared for it, having just bought a very pretty coat for herself.
The 21-year-old half-Chinese and half-Belgian college student from Vancouver is well-versed in five languages and dialects such as Cantonese, French and Shanghainese, and is a current law student.
She has a degree in Chemistry from University of Northern British Columbia. And that's not all - she also plays the piano and the trombone.
The 1.7m-tall beauty also showed off her athletic ability with her cheerleading moves, which she executed during the talent segment of the pageant.
