I want to thank everyone for the support and prayers that have never been broken, especially from both my parents and extended family, the Jambi community, friends of the finalists from 34 provinces and people who have supported me from the start. Please pray for this one year that I can carry out the mandate well and bring the essence of Indonesia to Miss World. To my friends, the finalists of Miss Indonesia, thank you for the togetherness and all the wonderful experiences.
