Fowsia Abdirashid Abdihakin to represent Somalia at Miss Supranational 2023, replaces Miss Somalia 2022 winner Iqra Ahmed Hassan

Miss Somalia 2022 runner-up Fowsia Abdirashid Abdihakin has been appointed the new Miss Supranational Somalia 2023, replacing the Miss Somalia 2022 winner Iqra Ahmed Hassan.

The Miss Somalia organization made the announcement on social media earlier this month but no reasons were mentioned by the organizers in their released official statement.

Fowsia is 21 years old, born in Kenya, and was raised and educated in the Dagahaley Refugee camp. The education advocate and an aspiring cybersecurity expert is currently pursuing her final year at the university for her degree in computer science.

Her advocacy is focused on educating girls, children, and marginalized communities. Besides volunteering at education programs, she is also an environmental and climate change activist. She also believes being Miss Somalia 2022 realized her dream of representing her country on the global stage and drawing attention to challenges in her country. 

As the new titleholder, she will now prepare to compete in Miss Supranational 2023 this July. She is not only the first-ever Somalian representative to join the Poland-based international pageant but also the first Miss Supranational contestant wearing a hijab (head cover worn by some Muslim women).
