Indonesia is Miss International 2017

by | News

Filipina Kylie Verzosa passed on her crown to Indonesian beauty queen Kevin Lilliana, winner of the 57th Miss International beauty pageant in Tokyo, Japan today, Nov. 14.

Lilliana beat 70 other representatives, including the Philippines’ bet Mariel de Leon who, unfortunately, did not secure a place at the top 15 of the competition.

In her speech, Lilliana said giving importance to diversity should be a priority for a Miss International winner.

“‘Bhinneka tunggal ika’ is my country’s philosophy. It means unity in diversity, different but one. Indonesia is one of the few countries that have the diversity of cultures, languages and beliefs, that is why I am a big believer of unity in diversity,” she said.

“If I will become Miss International, I will spread this positive values (sic) and spread the cultures of accepting and respecting the differences because I know that every country has their own cultures, character and identities. Therefore, let’s create a perfect solution by learning, understanding, and appreciating each other,” she added.

The following is a list of the awardees:
