Somalia, a country in the Horn of Africa, is set to debut at the Miss Earth pageant with the newly appointed Miss Earth Somalia 2022 Hibaq Ahmed. The 26-year-old fashion model, support worker and English teacher will travel to Manila, the Philippines for the Miss Earth 2022 world final this November. Not new to pageantry, Hibaq was previously named Miss Elite World Somalia and went to participate at the Miss Elite World pageant several months ago in Soma Bay, Egypt.
