The Miss Malta organization hosted the grand finale for the title of Miss Malta 2021 on 7th November, 2021 where delegates from all over the country competed to win the national crown and an opportunity to represent the country at the international level. Kimberly Pelham who represented St. Julian's was crowned as Miss Malta 2021. She succeeded the reigning queen Hannah Giacchino to the title.

Kimberly is a mental health advocate and uses her social media handles to spread awareness about the same. Talking about her journey in the pageant world, the 25-year-old wrote, “A pageant, I have learnt, teaches you things about yourself you never knew. It pushes you to become a better version of yourself and pushes you out of your comfort zone. A beauty pageant I have learnt, teaches you that beauty is within and from within you shine”



“You learn confidence, you learn that you are good enough and that everyone is wearing an invisible crown. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Leaving your comfort zone is the best thing you can do and believe you are enough,” she further added.

Kimberly Pelham is not new to the world of pageantry; she won the crown of Miss Saint Julian’s 2020. She also represented Saint Julian’s while competing at Miss Universe Malta 2019.

The beautiful night also saw the crowning of four other national queens, i.e., Miss Republic of Malta 2021, Miss Tourism of Malta 2021, Miss Grand Malta 2021, and Miss Top Model Malta 2021 at the same event.



Kirsty Falzon won the Miss Top Model Malta 2021 title while Shannah Vella Rapa got crowned as the new Miss Tourism of Malta 2021. Isabel Borg won the crown of Miss Grand Malta 2021 whereas Leah Sammut Mock won the title of Miss Republic of Malta 2021. They will now be representing Malta at the respective international counterpart pageants.

Kimberly will now represent the country at Miss Earth 2021 which is set to be held on 21st November 2021, where Lindsey Coffey of the United States will crown her successor at the end of the event.
