Anntonia Porsild who is half Thai and half Danish represented Thailand at Miss Supranational 2019 stage on 6th December 2019 at the International Congress Center in Katowice. She was crowned as Miss Supranational 2019 at the end of the event finale and became the first woman from Thailand to win the Miss Supranational crown.

Anntonia is 23-years-old and is an advertising student who has been performing her crown duties exceptionally well even in the tough times of covid19. When she was crowned as the new queen, everyone asked her on how she would like to use her title and platform and the diva responded that she would want to use the title to help people. It was before the global pandemic and without knowing that she would not have a reign like her predecessor's.

 Even in the time of crisis, Anntonia has been trying her best to carry out the crown duties as much as she can while maintaining the safety norms in the community. She was scheduled to travel and visit the other countries around the world, attend the glamorous events but the pandemic outbreak has halted everything in the world she wasn’t able to travel or attend event but the pandemic couldn’t stop the beauty queen from doing what she hoped to do in the first place.

The diva has been keeping herself busy by busy participating in a range of community activities since her country eased Covid-19 restrictions. Most of her activities revolve around the singular goal of providing necessities to those who need it the most. On asking about how did she end up getting involved in activities, Anntonia stated that some of the pageant fan pages invited her along with other pageant beauty queens to help the ones in need in such tough times and she personally felt that she needed to do something for the people. Since then the diva has been trying to deliver meals and necessities to families that were hard hit by the pandemic.

Describing her first outreach activity as "eye-opening" and a "realizing moment", the diva explained that she immediately knew it is not only what she should be doing but also what she wants to be doing. "My family raised me to understand the importance of giving back, and I have always tried to help out where I can. These past few weeks, I have become so much more aware that small acts of kindness make a real impact. There is not much I can do about the current situation in the world, but by going out and taking necessities to people who need it, I am of service to my country, and it is more important than ever for all of us to do what we can," she says.

"Some of the activities happened outside of Bangkok and in rural areas of Thailand where you become extremely aware of how hard people have been hit. It is also in these areas where I had more than 200 meals to give that people directed me to others who they believed needed it more. This has opened my mind to what society is lacking, especially in big cities where we often don't see or stop for long enough to care how many people are left out. Having people who I saw were struggling themselves send me to find others that have been hit harder have given me a greater understanding of what we can become if we learn to be a little bit more selfless," Anntonia continues.

Anntonia along with other beauty queens including Miss International 2019 Sireethorn Leearamwat, Miss World Thailand 2019 Grace Narintorn and Miss Earth Thailand 2019 Teeyapar Sretsirisuvarna were also a part of the initiative. The divas have reached out to the homes of people who live on the outskirts of the community and provided them with the necessities. Their goal as of now is to help with the fund-raising auction for an orphanage or disabled children.

When she was asked one of the most valuable lesson that she has learned during the pandemic, Anntonia stated, "Kindness is so easy and effortless to give. Even though I often feel that I am just doing small things, you reach a point where you learn to understand perspective. What I am doing might seem small, but it can undoubtedly have a positive impact on someone's life. This is what I want to be doing. Without hesitation, anywhere, any time, I want to go and help where I can."
