Wearing a stunning fuchsia pink outfit by Nwe Ni Win Maung, the beauty queen was joined by her supporters at the airport before her flight with Thai Airways. According to the Miss Universe Myanmar organizers, due to some difficulties that resulted in the delay in obtaining her US transit visa, she will have a stopover in Vietnam before she continues her journey to the competition. Amara will be the 13th Burmese representative in the Miss Universe pageant. She is currently one of the Top 10 contestants leading the fan vote. Since its debut in the competition in 1959, her country's first and only placement so far is in the Top 21 with Thuzar Wint Lwin at Miss Universe 2020.
