A convergence of natural hosting talent and a personality bursting with positivity, forms the fundamental essence of how Lee Yvonne carved an admirable career for herself as a television host and professional emcee, in addition to being a beauty queen turned motivational speaker, in Malaysia.
Yvonne’s most significant break arrived during her crowning as Miss World Malaysia 2012, from which she went on to represent her country at the 62nd Miss World pageant held in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, and subsequently solidified her presence in the industry, while her prominence took off ever since.
Never one to settle with contentedness, she challenged herself further by participating in the reality television programme “Projek 3R” (TV3; 2013), a talent quest in which she once again emerged champion. She was rewarded with a role as television host for “3R [Respect, Relax, Respond]” (TV3; 2013) – a programme aimed at empowering young women through awareness of current issues, which became her successive big break. She also actively recurs as a guest host for “Astro Go Shop”, and has enjoyed guest stints on “Football Overload” (Astro SuperSport; 2012), “Splash Fiesta” (RTM2; 2012), as well as “The Apprentice Asia” (AXN; 2013).
Yvonne’s captivating charm and mesmerising persona permits her to transcend the television screens to become a sought after professional emcee, that is fluent in English and Malay, as well as conversational Mandarin and Cantonese. She naturally acclimatises to both lifestyle and corporate functions, with highlights of her master of ceremony duties including Beauty Bound Asia 2015 in collaboration with SK-II, Freedom Film Festival 2014, the launch of Quill City Mall, the national level Mrs. Universe Malaysia 2014 pageant, and also the international level Mrs. Universe 2014 pageant, just to name some. Her other clientele boasts of impressive brands such as Porsche, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Hyundai, Motorola, HP, Petronas, adidas, Proton, Kodak, Pandora, Maybelline, Neubodi, Banana Republic, Watsons Malaysia, and many more.
In spite of her celebrity, Yvonne’s foray as a “3R” host progressively groomed her into a role model for youngsters, especially women, which eventually lead her to becoming a motivational speaker. Notable occasions where she spoke at include the nationwide intercampus tour Jelajah Kampus 3R 2014, Erican Success Forum 2013, Erican College Success Icon 2013, Watsons WOW Workshop 2013, UNITEN International Business Symposium 2013, Standard Charted International Women’s Day 2013, and Malaysia Supermodel Search 2015.
More than that, Yvonne is also a true embodiment of the Miss World slogan ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ as she is highly involved in charitable projects and volunteering efforts. She has served as ambassadors to various campaigns under the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia, Shark Savers Malaysia, and also the National Cancer Society of Malaysia.
Aside from that, and since the end of 2014, she motivates and teaches English language to underprivileged children and youths through the OSAI Foundation Malaysia, which was founded to empower kids from the slums. At the foundation, she is also an active committee member of The Tree House Project – a provision for neglected children in poor urban communities in the Klang Valley. Additionally, she also assists with organising educational field trips on a monthly basis, aiming to widen the kids’ horizons and exposing them to the world.
Geared with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication, majoring in Public Relations, from KDU University College in Malaysia, Yvonne truly cherishes being on screen and also behind the camera, and is well versed with the ins and outs of the entire production procedure. Stemmed from her internship period with 8TV – a free-to-air private television station in Malaysia – as an Assistant Producer on the second season of “So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia” (8TV; 2008), she is experienced in the processes of recording, conducting interviews, and editing, for both live as well as recorded television programmes.
This dynamic, go-getter attitude of hers is also prominently mirrored in her interests for travel and fitness. An avid fan of extreme water sports, Yvonne – also a KFit Asia ambassador since 2015, is a licensed scuba diver who appreciates going on frequent wakeboarding adventures in her down time, as she is not one to shy away from challenges.
She also embraces a considerably strong national following as a social media influencer, due to her being consistently active on her official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter platforms. Back when she was still pursuing her tertiary education, she operated an online shop selling clothing all on her own, thereby kick-starting her entrepreneurial spirit. She is currently running an eyelash serum side business online, which is proving to be a huge hit with her peers from the industry.
With a constant desire for self improvement and career enhancement, armed with professional work ethics and a positive outlook, Lee Yvonne is poised to be a distinguished talent to be reckoned with in Malaysia.
