family, with my husband and little daughter, and a new world opened

distinguished for its originality, the harmony of antiquity and
modernity,' said Ryzhkova.
A business consultant from Germany Sarah Bauer stressed the
uniqueness of the International Beauty and Model 2022.
'The beauty contest was original in its philosophy and
presentation of female beauty not so much through the external

motivation for further activities. Women should be beautiful in
everything,' said Sarah Bauer.
