– Be afraid of your desires, they have the ability to come true. When Anna Filimonova called me and said that I would represent Ukraine at Miss Universe, I was a volunteer in a restaurant and washed the floor. My shock was hard to put into words. Can you imagine this picture? It was my childhood dream. Probably for the first time in all this time I cried from happiness. I have always said that beauty contests are not about good looks or a good fashion show. This is a mouthpiece in which your voice becomes louder and you can convey an important message to the whole world. I love Ukraine with all my heart, and it's a great honor to represent it at the international level, – said the title holder.

The team of the national contest, together with Miss Ukraine Universe-2022, have already begun to cooperate with designers to create an outfit for competition of national costumes.
