There's no doubt that the internet is in love with this year's Miss Universe contestant from Vietnam, H'hen Niê, who finished in the Top 5 of the competition. H'hen Niê wowed us all with her pixie haircut, was the only one who dared to rock pants onstage, and touched our hearts when she shared her incredible backstory. Fans have also been defending her because it seems like her answer during the Q&A portion was incorrectly translated.

There's more to it, though. H'hen Niê has given her ENTIRE cash prize to charity and community activities! According to the official Instagram page of Miss Universe Vietnam, she received a total of one billion Vietnamese Dong (P850,000) from her managing company and various sponsors.

The post's caption reads, "She's decided to donate 100% of her prize for social activities. She wants to complete her promise with her village to provide scholarships for poor students and complete her social project, Room to Read (build more libraries in rural areas, support schoolgirls around the world). Such an amazing act of her."

Just this morning, H'hen Niê also shared some photos from a press event and wrote, "I highly appreciate the sponsors accompanying me in the community projects. Especially, when I came back from Miss Universe 2018, I could feel deeply your love. With the prize award valued at 1,000,000,000 VND from: Nam A Bank, VIFON, Unicorp, Doi Dep.... It is the highest amount of money I got so far. However, my mom said that in case I didn't have to earn it hard, I should give this money to others."

Earlier this year, she also gave away all of her prize money after winning Vietnam's national pageant and opened a library in the countryside to help kids learn how to read!
