Inside Pageant (IP) – Can you introduce yourself in a few words for people who don’t know you?

My name is Sonia Mansour, a french woman of 26 years old. I was crowned Miss World Noble Queen International in 2019.

(IP) – When did you first start competing in pageantry ?

In 2014, I

tried to win the title of  Miss Prestige Ile de France (A beauty contest competitor of the Miss France pageant – Ed), but I didn’t manage to win the crown.

I have been drawn to this environment since my earliest childhood. My family including my mother encouraged me to introduce myself to a pageant. After graduating from high school, I started working as a model.

(IP) – What sparked your interest  for pageantry ?

In 2014, I tried for the first time the beauty contest, but I realized that it took work to get the crown. I have to take it very seriously to get results. I prepared to come back stronger in 2015. Then, I got a taste for competition.
