South African beauty Jeanette Akua to represent Great Britain at the 69th Miss Universe pageant

Jeanette Akua has been officially announced as Miss Universe Great Britain 2020 on Monday, March 8. She was virtually crowned by the outgoing titleholder Emma Jenkins of Wales.

The 27-year-old singer and songwriter of South African descent is a graduate of a master's degree in economics. She was a finalist on X Factor UK in 2013 and a semi-finalist on Britain's Got Talent in 2017.

"This win means so much to me. It's more than just a crown. Pageants are more than just beauty. It's bigger than that. It's about celebrating women and the many layers we come in. It's about being audacious and having the nerve to pursue your dreams. Feeling the fear and doing it anyway," she said on social media shortly after winning the competition.

Jeanette bested over 30 entrants from all over the country to win her beauty title including first runner-up Sophie Moulds and second runner-up Amy Meisak. She will now prepare to represent Great Britain at the 69th Miss Universe pageant to be held this May in Florida, USA.

Originally scheduled for July last year, the national pageant was rescheduled for December due to the COVID-19 pandemic and delayed again because of the detected new strain of the coronavirus.
