Azra DulimanMiss Sweden 2009, Azra Duliman, is presently in København to attend COP 15, after being chosen by Green Cross, the environmental organization founded by Mikhail Gorbachev.
   Duliman, a law student, was chosen as Miss Sweden earlier this year based in part on her record of working on human rights’ issues.
   Duliman says in a statement, ‘I am so excited to have received this mission. Global environmental issues have long been a major interest. There is so much I want to say, so much I want to learn, and so many genuine environmental activists I want to meet [including] Mikhail Gorbachev, and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai.’
   She described Maathai as ‘A fascinating woman who has done so much, both for the environment and for women’s rights in Kenya and internationally.’
   Panos Papadopoulos, the founder and owner of the Nya Fröken Sverige pageant, adds, ‘At last the public seems to get what New Miss Sweden idea is really about. Young girls are able to make a difference in the world, using tools like intelligence, driving force and inner strength, and not by just exposing themselves. Not anyone gets a task like this. The whole world has their eyes pointed at København right now, and everyone who is participating must have something very important to say. Azra does.
   ‘The fact that organizations like Green Cross want Azra as their spokeswoman proves that the seriousness of our concept has reached out. It makes me very proud.’
