It was a magical night for Vietnamese beauty Nguyen Thúc Thuy Tien who created history by becoming the first representative from her country to win Miss Grand International 2021 crown. She succeeds and was crowned by Miss Grand International 2020 Abena Appiah of USA. The finale of the 9th edition of Miss Grand International was held on 4th December 2021 at the SHOW DC Hall in Bangkok.

The 23-year-old Tiên studied hospitality management at Vatel France – Hotel and Tourism Management School in Nîmes, France. She is also Vatel Vietnam Investor and Co-founder of Adopt’ Vietnam. Nguyen focuses on her motto ‘Never regret. Keep moving forward’ and always tries to find silver lining in every situation even after all the neglect in her life.



Born in Ho Chi Minh City, she hasn’t had an easy life as she grew up without her parents who divorced when she was only four years old, thus, she grew up with her aunt and has special interest in music and dancing.

This year, the organization introduced another segment as the Top 2 tied and were asked a final question before the crowning happened. She took home the crown after they were asked why they believe they should win the title. In response, Tiên gave a candid reply and mentioned that she did not believe she would be among the top two and expressed that she was nervous. However, she mentioned that she was ’ready to work’ if crowned Miss Grand International 2021.



Not new to the pageant world, Nguyen was Miss Southern Vietnam 2017 first runner-up and a Miss Vietnam 2018 finalist. She was unplaced when she represented Vietnam at Miss International 2018 in Tokyo, Japan. On 13th August 2021, Nguyen was appointed as Miss Vietnam Peace 2021, making her Vietnam’s Miss Grand International 2021 representative.
