Miss Tourism Jakarta 2009 Andara Rainy has been selected as Miss Tourism Indonesia 2009 on 7 November 2009.
In an interview with Kompas, Andara, born in Jakarta on 25 November 1987, said that she will make efforts to improve the image of Indonesia abroad.
When she was asked about terrorism that has marred our image, she said that she will convince people abroad that it is not a big problem anymore because we have successfully beat them, and 99 per cent of the Indonesian people are against terrorists.
With this achievement, Andara received Rp. 36 million, one year stay at a luxurious apartment at Permata Hijau, South Jakarta, and scholarship from the London School of PR Jakarta. Besides, she will represent Indonesia to compete in the Miss Tourism International 2009 on December 2009.
So far, I have not read any bad (or weird) news about Andara Rainy, and I really hope that there would not any in the future. I'll keep my fingers crossed!
