Swelia Da Silva Antonio has been crowned Miss Supranational Netherlands 2020 by a Professional jury led by the 12 Months of Beauty organization. The lucky winner was chosen on November 8th in Amsterdam.

As titleholder Swelia represents the Netherlands at the international final of Miss Supranational 2020/2021 in Poland, one of the top 5 largest international beauty pageants in the world.

The brand new Miss Supranational Netherlands is euphoric about her win..

“I love standing here and wearing the crown. It really is an honor to represent the Netherlands later on, and to be able to compete and promote our values. Before this time comes, I would like to dedicate myself to stake the culture of tolerance to flow down to the capillaries of society.” – Swelia

Also the CEO’s of the 12 Months of Beauty organization and licensees of various miss- and mister pageants, Robin and Stefan Hoven Lieuw Choy react enthusiastically to the results of the jury panel:

“Her power of persuasion is very strong, which for many will be a source of  inspiration. That’s what we’re looking for; women who stand up for what they believe in!”

– Robin and Stefan

The 23-year-old Miss wants to give the Black Lives Matter movement in the Netherlands a new dimension, by using her title to advocate for a stronger position of Afro-Dutch women in society. During her pitch she emphasized this goal:

“We have a culture of tolerance, a notion that we must constantly sustain. My effort is to dedicate my title and my crown to ameliorate the position of black women in Dutch society. I believe that 2020 came for positive change. From the ground up, we will upgrade.”

Swelia believes in the strength of unity and association, therefore, both factors will be central to her efforts to attach weight to her crown. In addition to being a Miss, Swelia is also a Master’s student in Public Administration and Ambassador of Education for the Black Ladies Talk organization.

This real beauty and brains of own soil gives substance to her qualities by entering into collaborations from model to guest at the table, the list goes on and on.

With this ‘from the ground up’ mentality, Swelia also wants to bag in the international crown.

Follow and support Swelia through social media, on Instagram she is ‘@a_la_swelia’ and on Facebook ‘Swelia Da Silva Antonio’.
