Miss Peru organization took to their official social media just hours ago as they appointed Samantha Batallanos Cortegana as the new Miss Grand Perú 2021 and will represent her country at Miss Grand International 2021.

The organization took to their official social media as they wrote, “This is how we close the week! Samantha Batallanos is Miss Grand International Peru 2021 and will be tasked with competing for the golden crown in October. Congratulations.”



Samantha is not new to the pageantry as the 25-year-old stunning beauty participated in Miss Peru 2019 and at the end of the event finale, Samantha was crowned Miss Peru Grand 2020 and became the official representative of Peru at Miss Grand International 2020. However, she was later replaced by Maricielo Gamarra who instead represented Peru at the 2020 edition.

Prior to her winning Miss Peru Grand 2020, Samantha became the official representative of Peru at Miss Landscapes International 2018 where she placed as the second runner-up. With her experience in the pageantry, Samantha will definitely be a strong competition for the other ladies at the 2021 edition of Miss Grand International.

Samantha is a journalism student who comes from an orthodox Peruvian family where her parents had to work hard to educate her and her sisters and that made her a dreamer. Samantha took to her official social media to reveal her feelings in a post captioned, “Always trust the way life passes, it means untying the knots inside your head and believing that everything is going to work out in the perfect way for you.”

Congratulations Samantha!
