Representing Australia in the 69th Annual Miss Universe competition, Maria Thattil stands for inclusivity, equality, empowerment and diversity.
Maria's podcast series Mind With Me started as a passion project at the height of COVID in May 2020, where she created weekly episodes about social and cultural matters that impacted her viewers.
Gaining a huge social media following after winning Miss Universe Australia, Maria uses her platforms to voice socio-political issues that affect minorities in society and pledges to raise awareness to impact change. As one of the first Mermade Hair ambassadors, we are proud to support her 100% of the way.
