The Philippines’ Fuschia Anne Ravena was named Miss International Queen 2022 during the coronation night held in Thailand on Saturday, June 25. The 27-year-old business owner bested 22 other candidates in the competition to succeed Mexico’s Valentina Fluchaire. Ravena is the third Filipino to take home the Miss International Queen title, after 2012’s Kevin Balot and 2015’s Trixia Maristela.
During the final question and answer portion, the candidates were asked how they would teach the importance of equality should they win the pageant. Ravena’s winning answer was: “I will start it by influencing other people to spread love, peace, and unity to have world equality because after all we live under one sky. And we breathe the same air. And we all live from differences where love is universal.”

In an interesting twist of fate, India - who came out of nowhere - won the Man of the World 2022 contest beating heavy favorite Ukraine who placed second. This goes to show you that popularity does not equate automatic victory.
The pageant, which celebrated its fourth edition, took place on June 18 at Baguio Convention Center in Baguio City, Philippines.

Mexicana Latinoamericana 2023 for Nuestra Latinoamericana Universal 2023 - Veronica Gamboa of Nayarit
La Suplente (replacement, should any of the above winners cannot fulfill their obligations) - Mayra Valencia of Nuevo León
Initially, Mayra Valencia (center) was crowned Mexicana International 2023 until co-host Ximena Navarrete, Miss Universe 2010, announced that the announcement was read in error and that the real winner of Mexicana International 2023 is Itzia Garcia (left). Mayra graciously relinquished her crown and sash to Itzia. Many Mexican fans think that Mayra should have been crowned Mexicana Universal 2022 instead of Irma.
