Nineteen-year-old Nguyen Pham Bao Quynh from Hungary beat 19 other beauties from other countries to win the Miss Vietnam Europe 2008 title on Sunday night at London's Troxy Theater.
"I'd like to introduce the confidence of Vietnamese women of my age to international friends," Quynh told Thanh Nien after the contest.
"I hoped I could return Vietnam to join the Miss Vietnam International pageant and it is coming nearer now."
Quynh came to Hungary with her parents when she was two. She is currently a student at the Cervinus University of Budapest and had been crowned Miss Vietnamese Student in Hungary last year.
The first runner-up in the Miss Vietnam Europe contest was awarded to Mao Ngoc Anh, a student from the UK, while Le Xuan Mai from France won the second runner-up place. The contest attracted the participation of around 200 Vietnamese women living and working in European countries.
