POPULAR CULTURE: Miss Poland Competes for "Miss Universe" Title

Angelika Jakubowska – Miss Poland (Miss Polonia) will represent her nation at this year’s Miss Universe pageant to be held on Sunday, August 23 at 9:00 pm.

She hails from Lubań, (southwestern Śląsk region), is 20 years old, stands 5′9,” and is fluent in English and German.

Despite all the beautiful women sent to the pageant, Poland amazingly has yet to win the Miss Universe crown. They made the cut in 1958, 1959, and 1989 editions of the pageant. Will Angelika offer hope for Poland this year?
