Nikki de Moura was crowned Miss Grand Philippines 2023 at the finale of the national pageant held on Wednesday, 13th July 2023 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Nikki has been preparing to represent Philippines at Miss Grand International 2023.

Nikki won the first edition held under ALV Pageant Circle. The stunning beauty was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to a Brazilian father and a Filipina mother. She moved to the Philippines in 2016 to pursue a career in modeling and has since become the face of several brands including fashion giant BENCH.



Not new to the pageant world or the entertainment world, in 2021, Nikki joined the sixth season of Supermodel Me, where she finished as first runner-up to Vietnam’s Nguy?n Qu?nh Anh. She also appeared in the music video of James Reid and Destiny Rogers’ song ‘Lie to Me’ which was released in November 2022. Despite being 19 years of age, Nikki already holds the title for Miss Governor’s Cup South 2018 and Miss Teen Philippines 2019.

Nikki’s advocacy focuses on ‘peace and war’. “Coming from Mindanao where a stigma of unpeace often characterizes our identity, I am angry. I am infuriated by violence and war. That is a pointless disregard not only to human life but also to human dignity”, she spoke on the coronation night.



During the question-and-answer portion, Nikki was tasked to create her own tourism slogan for the country. She replied, “To love the Philippines. Being a Brazilian and Filipina, it makes me love both cultures, both heritages, and two different traditions. And so I’m proud to say that I love the Philippines despite it having its flaws”, she explained.

Philippines has yet to secure a Miss Grand International crown since the pageant was established in 2013. For her age doesn’t matter, what matters is how much mentally prepared one is and she is going to give an outstanding performance at Miss Grand International 2023 to be held in Vietnam on 25th October 2023.
