Miss NIcaragua Universe Sheynnis Palacios wins Nicaragua’s first Miss Universe crown on Sunday.
El Salvador – Nicaragua wins the title of Miss Universe 2023, with Miss Thailand coming in first place, in a historic crowning moment filled with glamour and tears of joy.
Sheynnis Palacios bagged Nicaragua’s first Miss Universe crown at the end of the more than 3-hour-long coronation night of the pageant held on Sunday in El Salvador. Thailand’s Anntonia Porsild was named first runner-up and Moraya Wilson of Australia was second runner-up.
The final question of Miss Universe 2023 was “If you could live one year in another woman’s shoes who would you choose and why?”.
Miss Nicaragua mentioned Mary Wollstonecraft’s name who is known as the women’s rights activist and mother of feminism.
Anntonia answered, “I would choose Malala Yousafzai because I know the struggles she had to deal with in order to get to where she is today.”
“She (Malala) had to fight for women’s education and fight for all women to be able to stand strong and be the change and lead by example. If I could choose anyone that would be her,” the 27-year-old added.
Miss Australia honored her mother by saying that she would like to step into her mother’s show.
