Nguyen Thuc Thuy Tien, of Vietnam, has been crowned Miss Grand International 2021. Out of 68 submissions, 10 were selected as finalists, and from those 10, 5 made it to the next round. Moreover, in the final round, the host asked all of the contestants the same thing: “If you had the opportunity to send a message to Russian President Vladimir Putin, what message would you like to convey?”
Therefore, according to Menin, who was ultimately deemed the winner, “war will only cause wounds; what we can do is begin taking real action, even if it is small.”
