The denial of good quality education has affected the livelihood of many people including the people of her hometown who live thousands of miles away from a big metropolitan city.

The magnitude needs to reach the people living in the countryside as much as the children living in the cities.

The final Question and Answer round was asked by the handsome host.

The common question for all the Top 5 finalists was; What message do you have for President Vladimir Putin of Russia, What would you say in 1 minute?

Miss Grand Brazil Isabella Menin was the first to answer this tough question, she started by talking about the shared history between Russia and Ukraine. They share the most important thing which is the same fate for humans. We need to work through our actions to diplomacy and understand each other. We can rise above violence through an open and clear conversation.

Miss Grand Indonesia Andine Julie

She spoke in her native language of Bahasa Indonesia. War has never had a happy ending, growing up in a family which taught her about kindness, compassion, and respect. She learned that kindness is the only way to bring a better future. With peace, we will see big smiles on our children's faces, and through them, we will have a better future.

Miss Grand Thailand Engfah Waraha

Every day, you hurt many people and I ask you, why do you do that? Everyone in the world deserves peace, love, happiness, and respect for each other. Please Stop the War and Please Stop the Violence. She asks the audience who agrees with her. It was a very interactive answer as the hall was cheering and supporting her. We can make love and you can do better things in life than hurting innocent people.

Miss Grand Czech Republic Mariana Bečková

She shared her story about growing up in a country where it was occupied by the Russian soviets union for over 40 years. Being raised by her grandmother who shared her stories of living in oppression and emphasized, we should learn from history that oppression is never the right choice. She will force Putin to look at the eyes of innocent people and ask him, was it all worth it? Because she does not believe in it.
