Miss Universe Armenia Monika Grigoryan Coming to South Florida

HOLLYWOOD, FL – With fans from across the world watching, the 69th Miss Universe Competition will take place on Sunday, May 16, 2021 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. Among the contestants present will be 21 year old Monika Grigoryan, Miss Universe Armenia, who will be competing for the world title of Miss Universe.

Ms. Grigoryan departed Armenia and is already in the U.S. She landed in New York City over the weekend and is making her way down to South Florida.

From Vanadzor, Armenia, Grigoryan is currently a senior at the Yerevan Brusov State University of Languages and Social Sciences majoring in linguistics and foreign languages. She works as a communications specialist within public relations at a logistics company and works as a translator for people all across the globe.

She also spends time working at a children’s modeling agency and teaches catwalk lessons to improve the confidence in the aspiring talent. Monika has also had the opportunity to star in 24 Armenian and Indian music videos over the years.

Volunteering plays an important role in Monika’s life. After her father died, she struggled psychologically and emotionally. She’s created a team of volunteers that help bring light to children struggling with disease and poverty to help them with the issues she faced as a kid. She is hopeful for a future without war and spent the year uniting those affected.
