Miss Universe Albania 2023 is Endi Demneri from Tirana

Endi Demneri was crowned Miss Universe Albania 2023 in a national competition held on Thursday, June 1 at Pallati i Kongreseve (Palace of Congresses) in Tirana.

The 24-year-old model from Tirana succeeds Deta Kokomani and will now prepare to represent Albania at the 72nd Miss Universe (Miss Universe 2023) pageant in El Salvador later this year.

"I want to dedicate this beautiful journey to my grandmother and grandfather, my two angels. I am convinced that if they were in the hall last night, the loudest ovations would come from them," she shared on social media after winning her national title.

"I strongly believe that beauty isn't just about having a beautiful image, but having a beautiful mind, a beautiful heart, and a beautiful soul," she added.

Hosted by Teni Vllaçaj and Eriona Sejdiu, the star-studded glittering event aired exclusively on Vizion Plus, an Albanian media company.

Albania has yet to win Miss Universe since its debut in the international competition in 2002 with Anisa Kospiri. The Balkan country's last placement was in 2019 when Cindy Marina finished in the Top 20.
