(Seychelles News Agency) – The representative of Seychelles at the next Miss Global Legacy in Limpopo, South Africa, Tisha Loze aims to showcase her nation’s culture and heritage on the world stage.
The 22-year-old, who will leave Seychelles for the event in September, told SNA she was very happy to have the chance to promote her country.
“It is a great honor for me to represent Seychelles and I will do everything I have to fly the Seychelles flag high,” Loze said.
Loze, who is currently studying for a fashion degree locally, will compete between representatives from 53 nations.
“I already have some competition experience in local competitions and at Miss Global LegacyI will be able to show the world what Seychelles has to offer,” she added.
The 22-year-old said she has done a lot of preparation for the contest, which includes researching and learning about arts and crafts that she can share.
The last time Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean, participated in the event was in 2019. Ella Marie represented the island nation and it was by her that Loze was chosen.

“Having not held a Miss Heritage pageant locally and the global event not having taken place for the past two years with the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers contacted me as I was the last participant from Seychelles. They asked me to send someone to represent us, so as I have been working with Tisha for some time now, I approached her and gave her this chance,” said Marie.
The competition is open to women between the ages of 17 and 28, and the main competition will take place on September 24.
Voting for the contest has already started online and people can vote for their favorites. A person can vote multiple times, with votes limited to one per day.
