Amanda Petri to represent Denmark at the 69th Miss Universe pageant

Amanda Petri has been officially announced as Miss Universe Denmark 2020 on Sunday, March 14. Miss Denmark organization made the announcement on social media.

The 23-year-old beauty who hails from Gentofte succeeded Miss Universe Denmark 2019 Katja Stokholm Funen. For several years, she has been involved with the national pageant led by director Lisa Lents as a mentor, public relations, and casting assistant.

No stranger to pageantry, Amanda was crowned Miss Denmark 2017 and went on to compete in the Miss World 2017 pageant in China where she was able to place in the talent and sports challenges. She also participated in Miss World Cup 2018 in Germany and finished second runner-up.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions and gathering limitations prevented the organizers to stage a competition so they made the decision to appoint a former winner to represent the country at the 69th Miss Universe pageant on May 16 in Florida, USA.

Amanda admitted keeping her designation a secret for a while. She said: "For the past months, the Miss Denmark team and I have been working hard in silence with this secret. I’ve been thinking so much about what to write when it would be announced, but sometimes there are no words in the universe that can describe the feeling you have inside - but believe me when I tell you that I’m grateful, humbled, and proud."
