Nadeen El Gaiar, born in the Egyptian city of Mansoura, aged 22, won the title of Miss Egypt, saying that it is a great honor to become one of the beauty queens in Egypt and to have the opportunity to represent the North African country in international forums.
Elgaiar said in an exclusive interview with Sada el-Balad English (See) that she’s so glad that the competition doesn’t only focus on beauty but on other important stuff such as personality, culture and education.
The beauty queen added that she is interested in volunteer activities and believes visiting hospitals and charities helps her integrate more into society.
“One of the lessons I learned during the competition is the necessity of commitment and acceptance of others as they are,” she pointed out.
She said that outer beauty is good, yet, inner beauty is “empowerment”, noting that people can reach any goal if they are beautiful from within. The queen added that she is practicing geography dance, and Latin dance, adding she is attending the University of dentistry in the final year and is willing to be a dentist in the future.
Elgaiar appeared during the coronation ceremony with an attractive look, which highlighted her grace, designed by fashion designer Bahig Hussein, catwalk by Marwa Talaat, and her makeup was done by Mariam Farouk.
It is worth noting, that the jury of the Miss Egypt contest, which included President of Miss Egypt Amal Rezk, and Star Reem el Baroudy, chose 25 finalists, out of 1,900 girls who underwent several competitions and qualifiers during the past weeks.
The specifications for joining the competition include age of no less than 18 years and a height of at least 165 cm. High qualification is also required, taking into account, good appearance, self-confidence, and a vision for community service.
