So, without any further ado, here are our Top 7 hot picks for Miss Universe Malta 2021 –

Janei Desira

Making it to the Top 3 for the People’s Choice Award, Janei is representing Zejtun at Miss Universe Malta 2021. She is currently studying to become a child care worker and wishes to study furthermore to become a kindergarten teacher. She believes that teaching children is empowering and influence us in a positive way. Her family is her support system and spending time with them is what she longs for and cherishes as whenever she feels like giving up their encouragement keeps her going.



She feels that the Miss Universe organization eliminates the ideology of beauty because they don’t believe in ‘One size fits all’ thinking. “No matter the race, size and ethnicity, each and every woman has the right to feel beautiful. We must stand together, support and empower each other. You are beautiful and strong. Be happy and kind to those around you. Be the best version of yourself for you. You are confident and can conquer the world with the right mindset,” she added.

Christine Pisani

She is also in process of becoming an entrepreneur of a sustainable clothing brand.

The Miss Universe competition will enable her with a platform to discuss her advocacy against social and racial injustices internationally.

It has also helped her stay resilient when faced with bullying, failures and criticism.

She shared, “Last year I was a victim of domestic violence, but today I’m a proud survivor. I would like to use this platform as a voice for all the women out there suffering in silence and I’d like to tell them to never settle for anything less than they deserve.” Having done several international pageant, including Miss Model of the World 2014, Best Model of the World 2015, Miss Intercontinental 2016 and Top Model of the World 2016, Miss Universe has always been Jade’s dream.

Daniela Scuro

Bugibba’s Daniela Scuro is working in the gaming industry and moved to Malta seven years ago, looking for ways to financially support her family. Being raised in a dysfunctional family, all the pain from her childhood made it very difficult for her to believe that she was made for happiness.
