Proving that one can be both stunning on the stage and in school, former Miss World Malaysia 2008 Dr Soo Wincci has made it to the Malaysia Book of Records once again.
In 2016, she earned a spot in the book as the first Miss World Malaysia to be a PhD holder.
Now, she scored a double win with TWO entries into the Malaysia Book of Records with “Most Academic Degrees Achieved By A Beauty Queen” and “Most Academic Degrees Achieved By A Recording Artist”.
Soo made the announcement on her Instagram profile as she graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Post Master Degree Fellowship.
