Miss Indonesia 2022 is Audrey Vanessa Susilo of Sulawesi Utara

Miss Sulawesi Utara, Audrey Vanessa Susilo was crowned Miss Indonesia 2022 on Thursday, September 15 at Studio RCTI+ in Jakarta.

The 22-year-old Monash University student representing the North Sulawesi province bested 36 other contestants to win her national title. She was also announced as the winner of the Talent and Social Media fast track.

Completing the Top 5 finalists were first runner-up Ida Ayu Laksmi of Bali, second runner-up Alyssandra Winyoto of Jawa Timur, third runner-up Angelina Aqila of Kalimantan Barat, and fourth runner-up Naomy Angelica Sembiring of Riau.

At the end of the show, last year's winner and Miss World Asia Pricilia Carla Yules passed her crown on to her successor who will now prepare to represent her country at the 71st Miss World pageant.

Reigning Miss World Karolina Bielawska from Poland graced the glittering event as a special guest.

The new Miss Indonesia plays an active role in her community and has a very high concern for poverty and education issues in her country. She believes that education is a very powerful tool to fight poverty. A quote from Mother Teresa "Not all of us can do great things but we can do small things with great love” is her motto in life.

Indonesia has yet to win the Miss World crown but has been doing very well at the international pageant in recent years with quite a number of placements and two runners-up courtesy of Maria Harfanti and Natasha Mannuela Halim respectively in 2015 and 2016.
