The annual pageant was held for the first time in 2011 and encourages women to take part in marine conservation and diving.

According to the New Straits Times, Brittany Anne Novick said: “I’m absolutely shocked. This is an amazing opportunity and a great experience. I can’t wait to embark on this journey.

“I look forward to going back to my home country and inspire as many young women as possible to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics because they are worth it.”
