Miss Global – an American organization founded by Mr. Van Pham based in Los Angeles California visits Qatar along with Miss Global Philippines Founder and Chairwoman, Ms. Nerissa Laping and Miss Global Philippines National Pageant Director and CEO, Ms. Pauline Sofia Laping. Miss Global 2017 Barbara Vitorelli from Brazil and Miss Global Philippines 2019 Riza Santos completed the delegation.
Miss Global has been running successfully for 8 years now. It has been hosted in countries such as the Philippines, Cambodia and Mexico with the support and patronage of its respective Ministry of Tourism.
What makes Miss Global stand out from the rest of the international competitions is its slogan which is focused on “Empowering Women, Embracing Cultures and Embodying the Beauty Within.” Miss Global is about empowering women, giving them a voice and making a difference. It is about embracing cultures, accepting differences, celebrating diversity and understanding what makes each person special and unique. Lastly, Miss Global is about embodying the beauty within, accepting one’s individuality and recognizing abilities to make a difference. It recognizes and identifies candidates not so much by their countries but by heritage and ethnicity.
Miss Global is a prestigious competition beyond the physical beauty of women from all over the world. The wider age range from 18-35 years old for candidates to qualify and join is what sets it apart from other traditional pageants. With Qatar’s great effort and commitment to empowering women and providing support and an environment that will enhance their political, civil, social, economic and cultural rights as stated in the Qatar National Vision 2030, the Miss Global Organization recognizes the country as a potential venue for Miss Global 2020. Furthermore, Qatar’s budding and renowned local talents in fashion and jewelry design are ripe for showcasing globally. Miss Global can provide the platform for this initiative.
The Miss Global organization’s visit to Qatar is aimed to know more about the country and appraise its viability and readiness to host an international cultural pageant. The Miss Global 2020 format will be in accordance and adherence to the Islamic values. This will be the first of its kind globally as well as another major breakthrough for the country.
Like the previous Miss Global pageants, over 60 candidates from different parts of the world are expected to join the competition. Miss Global organization’s objective is to make a positive impact and bring the world to Qatar.
