Miss Universe Aruba 2022 is Kiara Arends

Kiara Arends was crowned Miss Universe Aruba 2022 in a special coronation event that took place on Sunday, July 31 in Oranjestad. The 23-year-old travel enthusiast, model, and law graduate is a social justice advocate who founded BUMP, a charity organization that benefits upcoming mothers during the pandemic. No stranger to pageantry, Kiara held the title Miss Teen Aruba International 2017 and she was Virreina de las Americas at Miss Teen Americas 2018. The newly appointed Miss Universe Aruba will now prepare to represent her country at the 71st Miss Universe (Miss Universe 2022) pageant. No official date and venue have been announced yet for the international competition. Aruba made a historic Top 10 finish at last year's Miss Universe edition in Eilat, Israel with Thessaly Zimmerman. No Aruban woman has ever placed in the pageant since Taryn Mansell was named first runner-up to Venezuela’s Alicia Machado during Miss Universe 1996. View this post on Instagram A
