Miss Universe Iceland 2019 held its grand coronation night on 31st August 2019 where twenty two ladies vied for the national crown and at the end of the coronation night Birta Abiba Þórhallsdóttir was crowned the new queen. She succeeds and was crowned by Miss Universe Iceland 2018 Katrín Lea Elenudóttir.

Birta Abiba represented Geysir at the national contest. The 19-year-old beauty gave a stunning performance at the coronation night earning the right to represent Iceland in Miss Universe 2019. With the dream of becoming a published author someday, Birta is definitely a beauty with brains. She aims to help raise more schools and enlist proper education systems in countries that are still battling high rates of poverty. Birta was a part of our Top favourites for the crown as well!
