The 16th edition of Miss Aura International, i.e., Miss Aura International 2021, is scheduled to take place from 20th September to October 5th, 2021 at the heavenly venue-Rixos Sungate Resorts, Antalya, Turkey. Miss Aura International is an international beauty contest held every year since 2006 in Turkey, which was earlier known as Miss Kremer International.

The organization of Miss Aura International has recently announced their official representative from Ethiopia, Brkti Fessha Gideay aka Yolanda Fessha, a first-year student of the Health Science department, hailing from Addis Ababa. She is a keen traveler and a professional model.



Yolanda was passionate to study Health Science which she applied for, but it was the government who decided the major for all students and as a result she went to Sport Science College where she studied for four years. Yet she believes that everything relates to everything, and that she can use some of her other skills in social work.

She was also a member of the British council, working in motivating youths to be productive and constructive. In her free time Yolanda loves reading books, watching a good movie, going out for a hike, visiting historical places, traveling, going out for a cup of coffee or for some healthy snack with friends or family.



Yolanda’s biggest inspiration is her mother because she has a very good character, always helps others and faces all the problems with a cute smile, saying that her smile is her strength. Her mom makes her believe in making the impossible possible.

Sharing some interesting facts about her country, she mentioned that Ethiopia observes 13 calendar months per year as the country radiates ’13 months of sunshine!’ This makes the Ethiopian calendar 7 years behind the rest of the world. Yolanda is now preparing for her international stint as she is determined to make her country proud. She is experienced, strong, and comfortable with being on stage and on camera.
