KSUAE Foreign student - “Miss Tenderness” of the student competition “Pearl of the World 2024”

In Kazan, the results of the XV annual student festival “Pearl of the World 2024” have been summed up - a cultural event aimed at instilling in young people a sense of beauty, tolerance, respect, culture of communication and the art of communication.

In total, about 40 applications were submitted from Kazan students to participate in the competition. The competition itself consisted of four stages: the qualifying part, a literary evening, where participants read poems by the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, hospitality lessons and the final itself. The competition brings together representatives of different nationalities who not only show their culture, but also get acquainted with the culture of other nationalities and peoples. Each contestant is a pearl of her country.

12 versatile, talented foreign girls studying in Kazan reached the finals to compete for the high title. Among the finalists were representatives of all CIS countries, as well as India, China, and Iran. The final of the competition itself included three stages: a catwalk show, a creative act and a story about the traditions of one’s family. At each stage, the girls performed in bright, colorful national costumes.

Among the finalists is Valentina Gonzalez Vazquez (Colombia), a first-year student at the Institute of Architecture and Design of KSUAE. As a creative performance, Valentina demonstrated a national musical number, singing a perky song in Spanish, as well as a national costume, which she sewed herself just a few days before the final. Valentina said that they had been preparing for the final for a long time: they attended master classes, trainings and rehearsals - everything turned out to be not in vain. Valentina received the title “Miss Tenderness” of the “Pearl of the World 2024” competition.

We congratulate our talented student and wish her further creative success!

The organizers of the competition were the Ministry of Youth of the Republic of Tatarstan, the Committee for Children and Youth Affairs of Kazan, the Youth Assembly of the Peoples of Tatarstan, the Municipal Budgetary Educational Institution of the city of Kazan “Cultural Center “Saidash” and the Association of Foreign Students and Postgraduate Students of Kazan.
