Once again another Ghanaian representative,who happens to be Abena Appiah this time around failed to be crowned at the Miss Universe beauty pageant. It’s like our reps are just escorts for the competition, as Ghana has never won it before.
Last night in the FIU Arena at Florida International University in Miami, Florida, USA, the diamond-encrusted crown went to Colombia’s Paulina Vega.
The top 5 contestants at the 2015 pageant were Miss Colombia Paulina Vega, Miss USA Nia Sanchez, Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell, Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha, and Miss Netherlands Yasmin Verheijen.
Although Twitter was rooting for Miss Jamaica to win, she became fourth runner up. The third runner up was Miss Netherlands, the second runner up was Miss Ukraine, and the first runner up was Miss USA.
Nigeria’s contestant however took solidarity in the fact that she won Miss Congeniality Universe, Miss Photogenic Universe was Miss Puerto Rico, and Best National Costume was Miss Indonesia.
Vega studies Business Administration at the Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. She studied at Colegio Alemán de Barranquilla and completed high school at Deutsche Schule Bogotá(Colegio Andino) in Bogotá.
