“It was wonderful to meet and work with Maria Tran as a guest MC at the Miss Crown Asia event. She was a professional from the beginning to the end. Here's a handful of words to describe her: flexible, accommodating, friendly, professional, quick-witted, intuitive, and hilarious. She was also highly engaging and humorous in her delivery at the event, especially holding audience's attention captive the entire time she was on stage!”
