Miss CosmoWorld 2022 is Meiji Cruz of the Philippines


Meiji Aculana Cruz of the Philippines beat over 20 other contestants to be crowned Miss CosmoWorld 2022 on Wednesday, November 30 at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Uzbekistan's Amaliya Shakirova and Thailand's Onnapun Na Chiangmai were announced as the first and second runners-up, respectively. Zara Amalina of Indonesia and Cecilia Kongwa of Zambia rounded out the Top 5 finalists.

The new Miss CosmoWorld is a 28-year-old TV host and brand ambassador. No stranger to pageantry, she represented the city of Valenzuela at Binibining Pilipinas 2021 where she finished as second runner-up.

A graduate of three bachelor's degrees and currently pursuing her master's, Meiji is an advocate for education. She shared: "My life has transformed through the power of education. Thus, I want to emphasize the importance of quality and free access to education. As we educate our youth we provide them a tool to be empowered, be independent and be productive individuals of the society."

Miss CosmoWorld is a Malaysia-based international beauty pageant run by celebrity and former Miss Chinese Cosmos Carrie Lee. The winner takes home cash and prizes worth 100,000 US dollars.

The objective of the competition is to select contemporary modern ladies who are independent, passionate about life, and with good leadership qualities.
