“What we have to do is to start changing our ways, to start re-calibrating our minds, and redirecting our steps, because together, as a global community, our micro efforts will have a macro effect to help save our home, our planet.”
She was born in the city of Valencia, Venezuela and lived in Poland until her adolescence. She then moved back to Venezuela to pursue pageantry, before returning for good to Poland.
Francys Mayela Sudnicka was born on 9th December 1979 in Valencia, Venezuela. Through her family’s Polish ancestry, Sudnicka’s parents were able to move to Poland with her when she was 2 years old. Sudnicka went to school in Poland and lived there until adolescence. Despite this, she never lost Venezuelan citizenship and was therefore able to represent Venezuela at beauty pageants. For this purpose, Sudnicka temporarily returned to Venezuela in 2002.
In 2003, Sudnicka was named a semifinalist in the Miss Centroccidental preliminary, one of the largest selections of candidates for Venezuela‘s powerful national pageant. The judges gave away the titles of six states but did not select Sudnicka. However, the president of the Miss Venezuela pageant, overruled them and ordered that Sudnicka be sent to Caracas to prepare for the Miss Venezuela 2003 pageant. Sudnicka was appointed as the representative of the state of Trujillo, placing in the top ten.
Sudnicka represented the Polish community in Venezuela in the 2005 Miss Polonia contest. The winner of the contest was appointed to Miss World while Sudnicka, a Runner-up, was appointed as Poland’s Miss Universe representative.
In December 2005, Sudnicka was preparing for the Miss Universe 2006 title, following Natascha Börger as the second alumna of the Miss Venezuela pageant to seize a foreign crown after an unsuccessful participation in the Miss Venezuela preliminary. Since Börger was highly successful representing Germany in international pageants, Sudnicka was a clear favourite to become at least a runner-up at Miss Universe, but she unplaced. After moving back to Poland, Sudnicka also competed in the Miss Earth 2006 pageant in Manila, Philippines against 82 other women as Miss Earth Poland. She placed in the top 8.

“When I was 9 years old I traveled to United States to study and live with my parents who were working there. I finished elementary and high school in New York City, I lived there for 6 and a half years. During my school years I was able to get many academic achievements such as student of the month, principals honor roll, science fair awards during 4 years, art awards in a competition in New York state. I also had sports awards and among them was track race winner. Due to my parent’s occupation I couldn’t spent much time with them so I had to learn to be very independent since I was 11 years old, for example I had to travel by train to go to school by myself, stay home alone and learn how to cook because my parents were always working. All those experiences made me a strong independent woman and I thank my parents for that. It wasn’t easy but we made it possible together as a family. I had an amazing childhood life but lonely for 13 years because I was a single child until my sister was born when I was 13. I had facial paralysis when I was 13 and had to struggle with that for a while during my childhood.”
Now, She’s New National Director Miss Earth Ecuador… Congratulations!
