The Vietnamese representative at Miss World 2008 pageant Duong Truong Thien Ly has been invited to be the “national director” in charge of managing and consulting with Vo Hoang Yen at Miss Universe 2009.

In this position, Thien Ly will directly work with the Miss World organizing board. She will also join them to help Hoang Yen prepare for Miss World 2009 pageant by going  to the Bahamas before the final night of Miss World 2009 to help out.

The Hoan Vu Company expects that with her experience at Miss World 2008 contest, Thien Ly, who won the online vote for Most Favorite Participant, will transfer valuable experience to Hoang Yen. Thien Ly’s role as national director will end when Miss Universe 2009 closes.

The two girls were both contestants in the Miss Universe Vietnam 2008. At this contest, Hoang Yen was the first runner-up and Thien Ly the second runner-up. How ironic is it that the second runner up will be helping the first runner up? But anyway, hopefully we’ll place this year…?
