Ukrainian beauty queen Olya Popova is to take part in Miss Polo International 2019

This up and coming beauty queen may be just at the beginning of her pageant journey but is certainly off to a great start. She has already won a title of Miss Diva Glamour at Miss Russian Diva competition held in  Moscow on 1 August 2019.

“This was my first taste of beauty pageant life and I can clearly see how much hard work it requires and how well rounded you must be to complete and win a crown.” Olya commented on her experience. Her decision to try herself in beauty pageants was inspired by the best friend Lenka Josefiova, who, with more than 20 international titles, is well known in the industry and now is pursuing a successful blogging career.

This time she’s on to another challenge.

The Miss Polo International is a beauty pageant on the platform of the Polo game. It crowns a young lady as an Ambassador to carry out charitable acts in improving education globally. Olya has a background in Law, she studied and worked in London as well as being passionate about various pro bono activities. She helped to provide legal consultation and representation to less privileged by volunteering at citizens advice bureau. That is why competing at Miss Polo International is so close to her heart.

Talking about her ambition at the upcoming pageant, Olya said “I want to empower women to be even more active in all areas: sports, career, social life. Furthermore, I can relate to the fact that Miss Polo International states improving education as its main objective. I am a strong believer that education is a ‘cure’ to many problems we are currently facing in the world. Hopefully by being part of the competition I will help to bring more awareness to this important cause.”

The Grand Final of Miss Polo International will take place on 14 September in Dubai. Olya is extremely excited about her participation, especially because she is to wear a stunning gown by the famous Emirati designer Mona Al Mansouri.

To finish off she adds “I’m looking forward to meeting my fellow contestants as I’m sure that when so many beautiful and intelligent women come together, we’re bound to change the world and make it a better place!”
