BERLIN: Anja Kallenbach, 33 year old mother of two daughters, was named Miss Germany 2021 on Saturday evening after competing against 15 other finalists. There was no audience present for the event due to coronavirus restrictions, but the show was broadcast live over YouTube. The event carried the tagline: “Empowering authentic women.”
The triumphant mother of two hails from the eastern state of Thuringia. According to her profile on the Miss Germany website, Kallenbach would like to be a role model to other women with her “accumulated experiences in life, her profession, as a mother, as a friend, a woman and life-affirming person.”
This was the second time the competition took place after a revamp aimed to focus on the women’s characters rather than on their looks.
