The newly crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2021 Anchilee Scott-Kemmis (แอนชิลี สก๊อต-เคมมิส), 22, of Chachoengsao, Thailand is an alumna of the NIST International School (โรงเรียนนานาชาตินิสท์), which is located in Watthana District, Bangkok, Thailand. She attended the school from 2004 to 2017.
“All of us at NIST are incredibly proud of Anchilee for earning the crown in Miss Universe Thailand 2021,” the international school said in a statement exclusively obtained by CONAN Daily. “The messages she has been sharing resonate with so many: staying true to yourself; judging people not by how they look, but rather their hearts and minds; and taking action to make a positive impact on others. We know that she’ll now have an even larger platform to share these important messages and wish her all the best.”
Scott-Kemmis is of Thai and Australian descent. She was the captain of the volleyball team when she was at NIST, which welcomes more than 1,700 students of more than 60 nationalities.
NIST is a full International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. It was established in 1992 with support and guidance from the United Nations branch in Bangkok.
After graduating from NIST, Scott-Kemmis moved to Australia. In 2020, she graduated from the University in Sydney in Sydney, Australia with a bachelor’s degree in sociology.
When the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit, Scott-Kemmis went back to Thailand. She is currently is based in Bangkok.
On October 24, 2021, Scott-Kemmis represented Chachoengsao at Miss Universe Thailand 2021 at the Scala Theatre in Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, Pattaya, Thailand. She competed against 29 other candidates and won the title.
On December 12, 2021, Scott-Kemmis will represent Thailand at Miss Universe 2021 in Eilat, Israel. She will compete against more than 60 other candidates.
Thailand is riding a six-year Miss Universe placement streak. Representing the Asian county, Aniporn Chalermburanawong, Sophida Kanchanarin and Amanda Obdam finished in the Top 10 in 2015, 2018 and 2020, respectively, Chalita Suansane finished in the Top 6 in 2016 and Maria Poonlertlarp and Paweensuda Drouin finished in the Top 5 in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
If Scott-Kemmis wins Miss Universe 2021, she will be the third Miss Universe from Thailand. The first one was Apasra Hongsakula, who was crowned in 1965, followed by Porntip Nakhirunkanok, who was crowned in 1988.
