Imelda Fransisca (born 24 September 1982, in Bogor, West Java)[1] was the first Miss Indonesia in 2005. She went on to compete in the Miss ASEAN 2005 pageant, where she was the first runner up.[2]

She also wrote a motivational book titled You Can Be Anything and Make Changes (2006) where she discussed abuse she suffered as a child in Singapore. Her only "friend" during that ordeal became food, and she became somewhat overweight, but later lost the weight due to anorexia.[1][3] She attended college at Ohio State University in the United States and graduated in 2004.[1]

After the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, Fransisca accompanied Miss World 2004, Maria Julia Mantilla Garcia, Eric Tsang, and Jackie Chan to visit hard hit areas of Sumatra.[4]
