In her own words...
"My name is Anamaria Rakosi, I am 22 years old. I have just graduated from the University of Debrecen, as a microbiologist. I competed in aerobics for 12 years. I am proud of my results. I was the Hungarian champion many times and the runner-up in the world cup. I am very family-orientated, I hope that one day I will be a good mother, just like my mother. I am fond of children, so I spend a lot of times with them.
Also, I support “Hope Leukemia Foundation” in Hungary with my work. To be the most beautiful in Hungary not only a recognition, but also a possibility to help people, that’s why I chose my profession of healing.
If I was Miss World, I would use my reputation to support scientific researches."
