Marilyne Kouadio is all set to represent Côte d'ivoire at the upcoming edition of Miss International 2021. She was crowned Miss Côte d'ivoire 2020 at the finale held on Saturday, 3rd October 2021 at the Sofitel Abidjan Hôtel Ivoire.

Marilyne is 18 years of age and is a tourism student. She bested nineteen other contestants to win the national crown. Before winning the crown, she said, “What I’ve learned myself is that I don’t have to be someone else, that I am quite well, and that when I’m true to myself, I can do amazing things. You must allow the impossible to become possible.”



Ever since her coronation, Maryline has been a lot of charity work along with being busy with her official photoshoots. In October 2020, she gave smiles to children from poor families and their parents, by offering them food kits in Yopougon Andokoi Zompleu.

In November 2020, Maryline also visited disadvantaged children of Adjouffou where she offered several school kits. One of her concerns is the issue of children's rights to education. On the occasion of the celebration of the International Day of the Rights of the Child and alongside an NGO, she offered numerous school kits which included backs, notebooks, geometric ensemble, kits, pens, slates and various school supplies.

Henry Dunant University through its director of partnership, also awarded scholarships to Miss Côtete d ' Ivoire 2020 Maryline, adding another feather to her accomplished cap. She also showed her solidarity at AIDS day.



At the finale, Fatim Doukoure, Roxane Sangaré, Elvire Agbemadon, and Eunice Brown were the first, second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively.

With her sincerity and dedication, Maryline Kouadio will definitely be a strong contender at the upcoming Miss International. Tara Gueye represented Cote d'Ivoire at Miss International 2019 but unfortunately failed to place in the Top 20. The country is yet to pioneer its win at Miss International.
