Nosheen Idrees hailing from Jhelum Pakistan stated that she was well received by the Chinese delegation and it was a wonderful experience for her.
A student of communications at the University of Sheffield, Nosheen Idrees hopes to bring back a title that can put Pakistan as a country that has the most beautiful women in the world. In her own words, Nosheen Idrees says, "Pakistan is a country where the most beautiful women exist and it’s a shame that it’s not recognized for it." Nosheen is set to change the perception of how the world looks at Pakistan and hopefully she says that she may be able to spread the message of peace for her country and be a great ambassador for the youth. Nosheen Idrees also stated that the hospitality of the host country China was amazing and that she would love to go back for a visit some day.
Sonia Ahmed, President of Miss Pakistan World stated, “We are honored that Pakistan got involved in the Asian pageant as we have done International pageants as well as European pageants but it was wonderful to be in competition with Asian countries as well. Pakistan is still growing in the beauty pageant industry and in a short span of under 6 years Pakistan has got involved with many international pageants. Nosheen Idrees is an exceptional candidate who has represented Pakistan on both local and international levels in the beauty pageant industry.”
The Miss Pakistan World will be crowning its new queen in June 2009 and selections of contestants are being made at the moment. With the completion of 5 international pageants this year, 2009 seems to be a promising year for the Miss Pakistan World beauty pageant.
