The finale of Miss Universe Egypt 2023 was held on 25th September 2023 in Cairo, Egypt where Mohra Tantawy was crowned the new winner as she became the official representative of Egypt at Miss Universe 2023.

During the final Q&A segment, Tantawy was asked, “What do you think is the biggest reason why poverty still exists in many countries in the world?”

Her winning answer was, “I believe, the main reason why poverty still exists in many countries is the lack of resources such as education or the lack of economic opportunities and if I was to be Miss Universe Egypt, I would work with both local and international organization to create micro-funding environment and to empower these people that are stuck in the unfortunate circumstance of poverty and just empower them to break out of the cycle.”

The rest of the finalists who also competed for Miss Universe Egypt 2023 are Aya Abdelrazik, Amera Othman, Doaa Meera Tarek, and Salma Eltoukhy.
