The grand coronation of Miss Grand International 2020 was held on 27th March 2021 in Thailand, where USA’s Evelyn Abena Appiah was crowned as the winner. Her court included first runner-up Samantha Mae Bernardo of Philippines, second runner-up Ivana Batchelor of Guatemala, third runner-up Aurra Kharishma of Indonesia and fourth Runner-up Lala Guedes of Brazil.

Even though all these beautiful divas boasted immense talent and stunning capabilities, Aurra Kharishma of Indonesia was one of the most promising and potential delegates since the beginning of the pageant. She had been the audience’s favourite ever since she was crowned as Indonesia’s representative at the international pageant. With the most number of followers and a huge support, Aurra performed remarkably well in every segment of the competition.



Aurra took to her social media as she departs to return home, expressing her gratitude she said, “Thailand! Thank you so much for your warm welcome! I love you all so much, it’s been a while since my first day arrived here in Bangkok, lots of memories I have it here, I meet a lot of people who always support and send me love every day.” As she bids her farewell to Thailand, let us have a look at her charming journey at Miss Grand International 2020.

Aurra Kharishma from Indonesia was crowned Miss Grand Indonesia 2020 on 21st June 2020 and was flown to Bangkok last month to represent Indonesia at Miss Grand International 2020. Hailing from Majalengka , Aurra is 21-years-old and stands 181 cm tall. She is a post-graduation student majoring in Public Relations from Universitas Mercu Buana. She aspired to make the people of Indonesia proud along with owning a small book store and cafe so she can share more about her intentions to books.



“The beauty is come from yourself, your head, and your heart. Build it with confidence, knowledge, and positivity to make yourself come out to be the best version of you,” she shared. Aurra’s advocacy is ‘Peace Starts Within Us’ which is about self-love and confidence and she used the platform to reach out to people to encourage more and more people to understand the concept of self-love. She would also keep continuing the same advocacy after the pageant ends and make it go worldwide.

Aurra stood out with her stunning performances in the preliminary competitions. In the Swimsuit competition, with a little shimmy at the start and her bouncing short curls, Aurra dazzled in a blue two-piece set. Hers was definitely an exciting walk with fun sprinkled all over. Her million dollar smile and confident personality impressed everyone.

The Indonesian diva wore “The Edacious of Chicken Satay” in the National Costume competition. Chicken Satay represents the rich food culture and how widely popular this dish is in Indonesia. Aurra’s charm and infectious smile enhanced the beauty of her costume. Aurra’s positive aura indulged everyone around in her performances.



Before the winner was announced the five delegates were put to a grilling question and answer round which was their last chance to impress the judges and the audience with their intelligent and witty answers. Miss Grand Indonesia 2020 Aurra Kharishma was the fourth one to answer the common asked question, and she sounded confident and strong while answering the questions and managed to impress everyone with the impactful answer.

Aurra Kharishma was adjudged as the third runner-up to Miss Grand International 2020 at the end of the event. Even though she couldn’t win the title, she definitely won lifelong friends and most importantly came out as the queen of all hearts.
