Phạm is a lecturer at the College of Cultural Arts in Saigon and was into modelling and pageants before she won the title of Miss Universe Vietnam 2015. It is interesting to know how government regulations controls the pageants in Vietnam where they allow only one pageant to be held annually for selecting a Miss Vietnam. However, it seems as if the ban was lifted because we have seen Miss Universe Vietnam and Miss World Vietnam being held in the same year. This should give a good thrust to the pageant scene in Vietnam, hopefully.

Do you also know that Vietnam hosted Miss Universe 2008 where the first winner of the official national contest, Nguyen Thuy Lam finished Top 15. Also hosted Miss Earth 2010 where Lưu Thị Diễm Hương of Vietnam finished as a semifinalist. Vietnam's 2013 delegate, Trương Thị May was the last representative at Miss Universe as Vietnam made a withdrawal in  Miss Universe 2014.
