The beauty, talent and intelligence contest for international female students “Samara University Miss International 2022” which took place on December 16 ended with a splendid final show.

For more than a month, girls excitedly prepared for the final stage. They learned how to create unique beauty style, perfected their culinary skills, mastered the basics of bento cake decorating, and participated in themed photo sessions. In one of such sessions, girls posed with pets and exotic animals, and in the other in stunning evening dresses. The photographers managed to make a lot of memorable shots. The girls had their every day scheduled: preparation of presentations, rehearsals of stage performances and trainings where the participants honed the skill of defile and learned to hold themselves on stage. In the finals, the girls were not only to demonstrate the beauty, grace and versatile talents, but also, through their performances, to represent their native country, its cultural and national peculiarities.

The final stage of the competition gathered nearly a full room of spectators and fans who came to support the contestants. Nine beautiful girls, five creative and intellectual trials and the final defile in evening dresses were a real treat to the eye. The finale was bright, multinational and memorable.

The competition ended with an awards ceremony. Zainab Badreddine from Lebanon became the winner and the owner of the title “Samara University Miss International 2022”.
