Ms. International World is a global pageant system that puts diversity at the head of its priorities! Originally stemming from being a pageant for Latina women, they’ve branched out to have queens of many ethnicities and are striving to continue! Next to the glamour, sophistication, and passion for service that its participants all have, they make sure to have representatives from every racial, cultural, and economic background. Differing from the usual token minority or occasional untraditional contestant that many large pageant systems use, Ms. International World is championing diversity and we love it! Their Founder, Angela Posillico, is a force to be reckoned with and has quite the backstory that led her to be CEO of such an amazing organization.
Angela is no stranger to the Talent, Model, and Entertainment Industry. Having studied music from age 5, Angela is an accomplished Singer and Dancer.
