Denmark's Amanda Petri takes off for US to compete in the 69th Miss Universe pageant

Miss Universe Denmark 2020 Amanda Petri was surprised by her Miss Denmark sisters, national director, friends, and family before taking off at Copenhagen Airport to compete in the upcoming Miss Universe pageant in the US.

The 23-year-old international business student who hails from Gentofte was officially announced as Miss Universe Denmark 2020 last March. She was crowned Miss Denmark 2017 and went on to compete in the Miss World 2017 pageant in China.

"Wow, what a difficult journey it has been with preparations during complete lockdown," Miss Universe Denmark National Director Lisa Lents said on its official social media page.

"Still we managed to create home studios with the best crew and do everything we could to prepare in the best possible way," she added.

"This time we want to show, that we can do it. Little Denmark, little Europe can compete with the bigger countries with a sash factor. We don’t want Europe to be considered as the weakest link among all continents. We are preparing just as hard and want it as much as the others, if not more."

Lisa also mentioned that they are inspired by countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Venezuela, South Africa, Colombia, and Puerto Rico who are getting a massive amount of support from their fans, press, and sponsors.

Amanda will compete with over 70 other beauties from around the world to win the coveted Miss Universe title at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on May 16.
