As one of the Top 18, Maureen Montagne will compete in the final round of Miss Globe 2021’s head to head challenge.
The top 18 of Miss Globe 2021 were; Philippines, Ukraine, Guyana, USA, Romania, Germany, Mexico, Turkey, Canada, France, Bulgaria, Malaysia, Demnark, Tatarstan, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Latvia, and Albania.
“Thank you for all your support, all your love has my heart so full. I’m forever grateful for all of you!” she said on her Instagram post.
The Miss Globe 2021 contestants answered questions about themselves, their experiences in Albania, and how the pandemic has affected them.
When she reflected on her extended stay on Siargao island during the lockdown, Montagne said: “To be on an island with no work for six months, it was hard for me. However, I decided to turn that time into something productive. So along with friends, we started the Siargao community kitchen and we were feeding the locals and frontliners. Siargao is an island that makes its income from tourism, so the families there were hit very hard.”
“So it really taught me that I can make a difference in my community, and that you can make a difference in your community. All it takes is a small step towards being kind, towards giving,” she added.
Upon being asked what empowerment means to her and how she would use her platform as Miss Globe if she were to be selected, Montagne replied: “To be a Miss Globe is an honor, and I hope to have this honor as I would pour my heart and soul into it. To be an empowered woman is to be brave, is to be bold, and is to be unapologetic. I believe that we have to set an example to show that women can break the glass ceiling, that we can go above and beyond.”
“I hope to work with communities all around the globe. Whether it be in the Philippines, or here in Albania, I would like to leave a positive change in everyone’s lives,” she added. “I hope that I can continue my charities and work with children all around the globe.”
The Miss Globe 2021 pageant will be held on November 5. .
