Zihan Weng is a multi-talented artist. The Taiwanese model was first exposed in the fashion world at the age of 18. Having a strong sense of personal style and possessing natural reflexes thanks to loving sport, Zihan quickly grew comfortable being in front of the camera. The model and fashionista became an influencer on social media with more than a million followers on Instagram.
Zihan Weng was a candidate for the 2019 Miss Asia. With a body of perfection and a dazzling personality, she won the Perfect Goddess award. For a young lady coming into her first international competition, the award was a great honor. “Honestly, I was not used to it because I have to be careful in everything I do. However, I think it is good if I look it in a different perspective. I behave more properly and make myself better.”
Nonetheless, she always has a soft spot for sports. In 2020, she became the face of a golf challenge: 100-days to break through 100-par.
Beyond fashion and sport, Zihan Weng continues to conquer the business world. Just last year, the beautiful Taiwanese model established her sunglasses brand, Zihan Eyewear.
Zihan Weng, the multi-talented model/entrepreneur
To Zihan Weng, life is about cultivating new knowledge. She confides, “Normally I start my day with reading a book and sometimes go out to explore, to be inspired and motivate myself with fresh ideas and new experience”. On that note, she just added Rich Dad Poor Dad to her list of favorites.
In her spare time, Zihan loves practicing piano. On top of that, she is also taking dance classes and learning English. In business, Zihan humbly admits she still has lots to learn. The 1995 born model poured her heart into the first collection of Zihan Eyewear. “I was involved with all the details from designing, packaging, and marketing campaign”. For packaging, she reveals it looks just like a small piece of luggage. Which Zihan hopes everyone will enjoy, just the way she does.
To help kick off her brand, the perfect goddess also produced a commemorative theme rap song called Dizzy. “The reason for its birth represents the role of my career as an entrepreneur,” she laughs.

As to me, I love doing flowers arrangement which is like my meditation.” To open a flower shop is one of Zihan’s plans for the future to send more positivity out into the world.
