Jayarubini Sambanthan, a 22-year old accounting and finance undergraduate student from Kuala Lumpur have won the coveted Miss International Malaysia 2014 title and will represent Malaysia at the world level in Tokyo on November 11, 2014.
Standing at 174 cm tall, Jayarubini who also won the Miss Body Beautiful Strip subsidiary title cemented her win after giving her best inspiring answer to the question, “People relate beauty queens to role models, what is your take on this?
“I believe beauty queen is not just a pretty face, she is someone with respect and dignity, someone that the nation and future generation will look upon as a role model. Someone who will give back to society, someone you and I can call she’s ours, she’s Malaysian,” answered Jayarubini to loud applause and cheers from the audience.
Audrey Loke, a 22-year-old interior designer and blogger from Selangor clinched the grand slam title Miss Supranational Malaysia 2014 and will be heading to the world finals in Poland on December 5, 2014.

“The winners have inspired us with all the qualities that a beauty queen stands for and we are excited to see them representing Malaysia on the international stage,” said co-organiser MerveilleuxM Production managing director Marlene Lim.
