The elegant and graceful Manika Sheokand made it to the Top 20 at the event finale of Miss Grand International 2021 held at Show DC in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 9th edition witnessed a neck-to-neck toughie with an outstanding performance by all fifty-nine contenders; and at the end Tien Thuc Thuy Nguyen of Vietnam was crowned the winner by the outgoing queen, Miss Grand International 2020 Abena Appiah.

The 26 year-old chemical engineer set out on a path to chase her dream and create a distinct identity for herself, larger than her enviable qualification. As a girl with an extraordinary vision, and concern for the environment, she has inspired and influenced many for a better tomorrow. Throughout her reign, the stunning queen used her platform to further the cause, STOP THE WAR against nature. She is also the Goodwill Ambassador for the State Government of Haryana.

Though India has not yet won the coveted crown, Manika’s placement marks our 4th notable achievement at Miss Grand International competition following Meenakshi Chaudhary’s win as Miss Grand International 2018 1st runner-up.

The jury panel of the 9th edition included an all women power-packed team of five that included Miss Grand International 2013 Janelee Chaparro, Miss Grand International 2014 Lees Garcia, Miss Grand International 2016 Ariska Putri Pertiwi, Miss Grand International 2017 Maria Jose Lora and Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa, and it’s indeed a great honor for India to be placed in the TOP 20!

Manika stayed put as one of the most popular contenders from the beginning of the international stint and justified her popularity by featuring in the Top 20 honors at the global contest.

Congratulations, Manika!
