Who Won the Title as Miss Indonesia 2011?
Astrid Ellena, 20, from East Java bested 32 candidates on Friday night to be crowned as the new Miss Indonesia. Last year's winner, Miss Indonesia 2010 Asyifa Latif, and visiting Miss World 2010, Alexandria Mills of USA, formally crowned Astrid at the event held at Central Park, West Jakarta. Astrid was an early favorite and made it to the final three with Miss Banten, Nadya Siddiqa, and Miss West Papua, Amanda Roberta. But the Universitas Pelita Harapan student won over judges with her answer to the question of what a woman's most important role in life is. She said: “A woman must prioritize integrity and self respect. Becoming a mother is the most beautiful thing because the next generation is born from her womb.” Astrid, who speaks fluent English, Chinese and Spanish, is also known as Miss UPH. She will represent Indonesia in the 2011 Miss World pageant to be held in London. News Source: The Jakarta Globe
