Andreia is not new to pageantry as she started her pageant journey in 2014 and won the titles of Miss Teen New York USA 2015, Miss Massachusetts Earth USA 2017 and Miss Earth USA 2017. Andreai strongly believes that whatever she is today is because of the pageants she has participated in as it has helped her shape herself in a confident and ambitious human. She feels that platforms like beauty pageants give voice to women which is so loud and clear that helps them to raise awareness and educate people on something they are passionate about and think needs attention.

Andreia Gibau thanked Miss Delaware USA 2020 and Miss New Jersey USA 2020 for their constant support and love during the competition. She posted a picture with a caption, “These 2 women were my absolute rocks throughout this journey. We cried together. Cheered for each other. Empowered each other and held each other accountable. Words can’t express how happy I am that I get to experience the opportunity of a lifetime with my best friends. We’re better together!” on her social media.
