Miss Earth International 2015


Maksuda Akter, a Bangladesh-born beauty won three individual awards at the Ms Earth International 2015 beauty pageant which concluded last Sunday. The 26-year-old Irish citizen has been awarded in three categories: Ms Compassionate, Ms Best Gown and Ms Fitness.


The beauty pageant was commenced at the sea-side resorts of Montego Bay in Jamaica on October 14, in which Maksuda entered as a contestant as Ms Ireland Earth. Last year she was also crowned as Ms Ireland.

In the competition she paved her way to the grand finale demonstrating her beauty and merit to finally make it to the final five list. Although Maksuda was not crowned as Ms Earth International, she left every contestant behind in terms of superiority in the categories she won.

Maksuda was and raised in Dhaka before she moved to Ireland where she started modelling to rejuvenate her “monotonous” life. She began to participate in various beauty pageants soon after. In her professional life, she is working as a private pilot and a flying instructor, continuing to pursue her dream to become a commercial pilot.

As a single mother of two Maksuda is actively involved in charity work in both Ireland and Bangladesh, working with unprivileged children. Along with Ms Ireland 2014 she has other titles under her belt. This includes Miss Hot Chocolate 2014, Miss Universal Royalty 2013, Ms Ireland Earth 2015, Ms Photogenic 2014 and Supermodel of the Year 2014. She is the first Asian-Irish model who was featured in the cover of Ondine Magazine in May 2015.
