MISS CORSE 2023. Corsica has elected Sandra Bak as a representative for the next Miss France contest. But who is the new queen of the island of beauty?
[Updated August 29, 2023 at 1:54 p.m.] Corsica is preparing for the next Miss France election, scheduled for December 16 at the Zenith in Dijon. And the representative of the island of beauty is already known. Sandra Bak was elected Miss Corsica 2023 on July 28, during an evening held in Porticcio.
And it was not the first time that the inhabitants of Corsica could see Sandra Bak on a podium. She had indeed already participated in the election in 2020, "on a whim". She was then ranked first runner-up, as she reminds Corse Matin. Since then, the 22-year-old has continued her studies and, after obtaining her master's degree in teaching and education, she stood for re-election.
She was finally elected Miss, even if, as she tells the microphone of Corsenetinfo, the fact that she is not from the island does not please everyone. "There have been some remarks about my origins, because I was not born in Corsica and my last name is not of Corsican origin. But for me, Corsica has been my home since I 6 months, I grew up there, studied there, and I have always lived there. I am Corsican at heart, and that is what matters most to me". That is what is said.
Miss Corse is a beauty pageant that elects a representative for the Miss France election each year. Several young women apply to become the ambassador of the island of beauty. Since the creation of the contest, only one Miss Corsica has worn the Miss France crown: it is Pauline Pô, elected during the 1921 edition. Since then, no other representative of the island has won the national title.
