Karissa Kara Simon Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 finalist
Age : 23
Hometown : Kuching, Sarawak
Hobbies : Yoga, tennis, swimming
Karissa grew-up self-conscious, due to a scar on her arm and never wore short-sleeved dresses or tops until she was 18. However, taking up modeling changed all that. She learned to be more confident and comfortable with her flaws. Today, she is a poised young lass who is driven towards achieving her goals in life, which she believes will be an advantage to her in this pageant.
While she is passionate about many causes and plights affecting the world today, she is particularly passionate about Maiti Nepal, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of sex trafficking. Watching a documentary on the organization created a huge impact on her and her dream would be to work together with her role model, Anuradha Koirala, who founded Maiti Nepal. Kara has a particular penchant for baking, and has a contagious laugh, which she believes is a good thing to have to spread happiness.

I always knew she'd go far. Kara was one of the contestants at our Miss Fitness Sarawak Plaza 2012 that took place last May. She's very active in modeling, I've seen her at formal functions around Kuching where she would be donning gorgeous traditional outfits welcoming the Head of State and VVIPs.
From the list of finalists revealed, I'd say Kara is definitely the fairest of them all! Go Sarawak! :D
We are proud of you girl. All the best and good luck to you Kara :*
