21-year old Sara Chafak (center), from Helsinki, has been chosen Miss Suomi 2012 during a ceremony held in the same city on January 29th. Chafak, who stands 172 cm in height, will represent Finland at the 2012 Miss Universe pageant to take place around September/October.
The 1st princess was 23-year old Sabina Särkkä, also from Helsinki, who will represent the country during the Miss World 2012 contest in Ordos, China, in August; and the 2nd princess was Viivi Suominen, from Turku. She will compete in the 2012 Miss International pageant to be held in Chengdu, China, in November.
