Half-Filipino girl whose body is covered in moles auditions for Miss Universe Malaysia
A 20 year-old lady from Kota Kinabalu, whose whole body is covered in moles, has just recently auditioned for Miss Universe Malaysia 2018.
Meet Evita Patcey Delmundo, a gutsy and beautiful millenial of Rungus-Filipino descent, who is redefining beauty as we know it.
Interviewed by Elle Malaysia, Evita said that growing up, she was bullied in primary school and was often called ‘Monster’ or ‘Chipsmore’.
Attending a church camp at 16 taught her to love herself and more accepting of her looks.
She admitted to Elle that she wanted to have her moles removed before. But her doctors said it would pose a risk, so she decided not to push through and just accepted her body as it is.
Nowadays, Evita has learned how to ignore people who stare at her or make disparaging comments about her unusual skin. She told Elle, “I don’t think it’s necessary to fight back with more negativity. Haters really don’t deserve my attention.”
She said she has always dreamt to be part of Miss Universe Malaysia to “showcase her uniqueness” and to serve as inspiration to others. If she doesn’t pass the auditions, she plans to join other beauty pageants in the future.
Evita herself is inspired by Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, whose confidence and beautiful heart she admires.
Elle Malaysia’s story on Evita was picked up by the Miss Universe organization and published an excerpt of it on their website.
Currently, Evita has a decent following on Instagram (48,500+). She had posted videos of her singing (she’s got a nice voice!) while accompanying herself with a guitar; drawing, and also playing with cats in her part-time job at a cat cafe.
Evita continues to inspire her followers with her unique beauty, courage, confidence, and many talents.. And yes they love her, moles and all.

zoeymalik86: you should feel great, u r beautiful and you inspire people to be confident with themselves. which is a very hard thing to do for most people.
joan_delisio: My body has some moles too, I’ve had about 6 removed over the years. I know you & your doctor decided not to remove them because it may cause some difficulty. It seems to me you could easily remove some of them though, it’s not a complicated procedure and the skin heals quickly. Either way I will keep following you because you are a big inspiration to many people~ teaching us to see the positives and not dwell on the “dark spots” on skin or in life !!!
