Hot Stuff: Meet The Night's Charmer—Miss Indonesia 2019 Frederika Cull!

While there were more than a few qualified ladies who were deserving of the crown (our very own Gazini Ganados included!), one beauty that caught our attention at the Miss Universe 2019 was Miss Indonesia Frederika Cull. Twenty-year-old Frederika earned her spot at the Top 10 (the highest win for Indonesia, she's claimed) not just with her brains and beauty but with her charm!

With our interest piqued, we searched the web and found several fun facts about Miss Indonesia 2019! Here are some of the fab facts we learned!

She was an "extra" in a movie.

Frederika launched her career as an actor and starred as Feby in a low-budget film Buku Harian Dara in 2013. 

She studied in Oxford University.

Frederika is a true defenition of beauty and brains. She took up International Business in Oxford University at London, and Entrepreneurship Summer Course in the same university as well.

She founded an organization for undocumented kids in Indonesia.

One of her biggest achievements is founding the Voice for the Voiceless Foundation, an organization which focuses on raising awareness on the importance of birth registration in Indonesia. Frederika herself visited the slums of Jakarta and gathered data of over 200 individuals, and is targetting to get 800 more.

Some of you guys may know that I’ve been visiting slums around Jakarta to survey the people for my research I’ve been doing for my advocacy which focuses on birth registration. Currently I’ve collected the data of 200 individuals with the target of hitting 1000. Millions of children in Indonesia are undocumented. This number is concerning, giving existing evidence linking back a lack of birth registration to increased school drop-out, child trafficking and labour, and reduced access to health, social services, and education. Voice for the voiceless is an organization which main focus is to raise the importance of birth registration in Indonesia. We want to be the voice for the 75 million Indonesians who are unregistered by promoting birth registration to increase awareness and demand by explaining the importance of registration and consequences of being unregistered, and create effective programs and solutions. Join us today to give children in Indonesia a brighter future. 🇮🇩✨ #voiceforchange . .

She is a dog lover.

Not only is she fighting to save undocumented kids, Frederika has also saved over a hundred dogs from the dog trade in Indonesia with her mother—now that's what you call a dog lover!
