    Myanmar model Han Lay did not win last week’s Miss Grand International beauty pageant, but she’ll be remembered as one of its most impassioned contestants.

    The 22-year-old made heads turn in Thailand on Saturday during an emotive speech where she pleaded for “urgent international help” for her country, the same day 141 demonstrators were killed in a crackdown by military rulers she said were selfish and abusing their power.

    On Friday, she said her compatriots in an anti-coup movement would not back away from a struggle that has so far claimed close to 550 lives in the two months since the generals overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government.

    “They told me that they will fight on the street and I’m also fighting my way on the stage now. So I think that if they will not give up, we will win,” she said.
