MANILA, Philippines — Twin sisters–one represents Albania while the other carries the flag of Kosovo–will be competing for the same crown at the Miss Intercontinental pageant, which is being held in the country.

In an introduction in their respective profiles on the Miss Intercontinental website, beauty queens representing Albania and Kosovo described the pageant as “special” as the twins are both taking part in the same competition.


Miss Intercontinental Albania, 20-year-old Arvanita Peci, said that “it is a great honor for me to represent my country Albania at Miss Intercontinental because I am very proud to be Albanian.”

“Moreover it is very special for me because my twin sister is also one of the contestants in Manila. She will represent Kosovo. So I am really happy and excited to meet all the beautiful girls and to make such an amazing experience in my life,” she added.

Meanwhile, Miss Intercontinental Kosovo Arjanita Peci shared that a month after she was born in Kosovo, her family left the country because of the war.

“It was a hard year for my family, because we had to start from zero. Today we are living satisfied in Germany,” she said.


“I am working as a judicial clerk. I help people to fight for their rights. In my free time I like to read and to dance,” she added.

Arjanita echoed her sister’s sentiments as she expressed pride in representing Kosovo in the international pageant.

“I am very happy and proud to be Miss Intercontinental Kosovo and to represent my country in Manila. It’s very special for me because my twin sister will also take part at Miss Intercontinental. She is Miss Intercontinental Albania,” she said.

“Everything started when my (b)rother registered me and my twin sister Arvanita at the first miss election in our home city,” she added.

The Miss Intercontinental pageant is currently being held in the Philippines.
