A native of Brooklyn, Andreia Gibau was crowned Miss New York USA 2020 on 19 January 2020 and represented New York at the Miss USA 2020 pageant in Memphis Tennessee. A public speaker, writer, and philanthropist, Andreia also represented the USA at Miss Earth 2017.
Andreia is a speaker, writer, and philanthropist. She considers philanthropy being the core of who she is due to being an immigrant from Cape Verde and being born into poverty. Andreia immigrated to the United States at the age of 7 and faced many challenges living in an inner city and not speaking English.
Through her initiative, “More Than Enough,” she serves as an advocate for inner city and underprivileged kids by instilling confidence and empowering them to live life to their full potential despite their circumstances.
Andreia is a graduate of St. Johns University with a degree in public relations. She was named Phoenix Magazine’s 30 under 30 for philanthropy and speaks four languages, which has been a beneficial asset since shes an avid traveler.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Andreia’s state pageant photos and crowning video.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
