MWP 2012 Notes: Contestant #8 Maham Ahmed
MAHAM AHMED’S WINNING ASSET: Stage Stand-Out
The surprising thing about Maham Ahmed is her ability to REALLY STAND OUT on stage even if she is only 17 years old and very new to the pageant scene! During the Press Presentation of Miss World Philippines 2012 at the Manila Hotel, she was one of the girls that really caught my eye. Maham Ahmed can sure turn on the charm when she’s on stage in a crowd of beauties.
But I’m not the only one who noticed Maham Ahmed’s charm – according to this post on Norman’s Blog, Maham was spotted by no less than Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwendoline Ruais. Gwen was one of the judges at the Miss Magic 2012 (a Pangasinan beauty pageant) and Maham Ahmed was one of the contestants. Although Maham did not make it into the Top 5, I’m guessing that Gwen saw her potential and then endorsed her to beauty-queen maker Rogil Flores. Check out the Swimsuit Video of the Miss Magic 2012, Maham is the last girl, contestant #20.
Maham Ahmed gets her exotic middle-eastern flavor from her Pakistani Dad (I think he is Pakistani, can anyone confirm?). His name is Tanveer Ahmed and he is based in Malaysia.
