Rachel Young, the representative of Lebanon to Miss International 2018, is all set to conquer the coveted crown. As Miss International Lebanon 2018, Rachel will compete with more than eighty delegates from all over the globe representing her country’s culture and heritage.

Rachel was crowned Miss Lebanon Emigrant 2018 a few months ago where she also won the title of Miss Friendship and the right to represent Lebanon in Miss International 2018. With the official confirmation given out recently, she will now perform with utmost sincerity and dedication to bring home the crown.

The 23-year-old Economics and Politics graduate enjoys tennis and rock climbing in her spare time and is a competitive debater and public speaker. Not new to the pageant world, Rachel was also Miss Lebanon Australia 2017. Her experience will definitely help her in gaining a strong foothold in the competition.

Rachel has hosted fundraising events for ACSAUVEL - the leading special needs education facility in Lebanon, the orphans of the Veterans of the Lebanese Armed Forces, and the Municipality and Charitable Association of Hasroun.

On winning her national title, Rachel took to her social media as she wrote, “What an indescribable moment. After weeks of training, I am honoured to say I was crowned Miss Lebanon Emigrant 2018! I also had the privilege of being elected Miss Friendship which is the only title decided upon by the contestants and not the judges. This whole experience has changed my life and I am proud to know these girls and call them my friends! Now I am onto Miss International in Tokyo!”

The last time Lebanon won Miss International pageant was in 2002 when Christina Sawaya from Lebanon was crowned the new queen. After that, the country has not been able to bring home the coveted crown. With Rachel’s delegation, everyone is hopeful that she will be able to win the crown this year!
