Ms Russia- Leyla Murugova
Hello everyone! My name is Leyla Murugova I'm from Russia and I’m so happy to represent my country. I am an architect designer. I make beautiful and comfortable apartments, houses and offices for my clients. I love my job - it makes me happy! I also have another passion-drawing. I'm an artist. I draw for myself and for my design projects. I can't imagine my life without sports. I do boxing, jogging, I ride a bike, mountain ski, snowboarding and go to the gym. I also enjoy playing in a community theatre where we perform for children mostly. I suppose all these things are about loving life. I love life and it loves me back! Miracles happen with those only who believe in them. I am the one. I believe in miracles. And they are really happening in my life. One miracle is happening right now. Visiting Miami, it’s was my dream, finally I am here!!!
I want to show all the women of the world that they are not only mothers and wives, they are women, they are Queens. Every woman can go to a beauty contest and show herself to the world as I do.
I want to thank my parents and my boyfriend. They always believe in me! I want to thank you all! We all won! We're all Queens! Forever!

World International Petite
Mrs Romania- Tali Brockman
I am the 2nd oldest of 11 siblings.My family was sponsored into the United States by a small church in Salisbury N.C. I grew up very poor and had to grow up very fast and responsible in order to help my parents . In Romania and in the US I experienced the most difficult hardship including physical abuse and sexual abuse.There was a time I found myself squeezing everything i could fit into a 16 foot Penske Truck, got behind a wheel with my two children ages 5 and 6,and $20 to my name. We went from being homeless, sleeping in the car, to literally not knowing where our next meal was going to come from. Through hard work and perseverance I have created a good life for me and my children.
I overcame these obstacles by making God and myself a promise that one day I would use my experience to help motivate and inspire others. I have chosen to give back by making a difference in the lives of children and their families. It is a blessing that what was done for me, I am honored now to do for others.
Four years ago God blessed me with my best friend and partner for life. He knows my heart and my passion for keeping my message in the forefront. You see..2 years ago we were able to start a Non-profit called "No Kids Left Behind". Last December we put together our very first festival. With the attendance of over 2,000 people, live entertainment ,Keys to the City of Sanford, and with the help of the head City Councilman,We raised money to continue helping children in orphanages,as well as homeless children here in FL and in my beautiful home country of Romania . It was such an unbelievable success that we are now working on our second festival that will be held next December. We are set to triple our attendance . I believe we have to be the change we want to see by keeping the message of "No Kids Left Behind" in the forefront. It makes my heart happy to share that we have volunteers in countless numbers joining our cause to change lives and make a difference in the lives of these innocent children. It starts with one person. How well do I know? That person is me.
World International Miss
Miss Canada- Merci Maddox
Coming all the way from Calgary to Miami and winning Miss World International for Canada is amazing. I started pageants when I was a shy 17 year old just trying something new to break out of my shell and who knew it would lead me to 7 years and 7 crowns to my name back to back. Pageants opened up my world to modeling, ambassadorships, vibing at Paris Fashion Week parties, and countless friendships all over the world. Thinking about who I was as a little girl growing up in the Northwest Territories of Canada and who I was when I was 17, I couldn't have expected my life was going to be like this!
Winning The Miss title AND the the People's Choice crown is something so incredibly meaningful to me. I have plenty of experience in pageantry being a titleholder the past 7 years. My favorite part of pageants have always been meeting people and the prospect of making new friends. I know the different kinds of people you meet and if you're the person in the room that can be there positively, break the ice, make people laugh, and just unapolegetically be your outrageously fun self--everyone can have a great time and that's what I hope for people to get from pageants.
