She is also the aunt of reigning Miss Egypt Universe, Lara Debbane. Egypt last competed in Miss Universe 2014 after which the national competition was disbanded by the former organizer.


In a conversation with Missosology, Hoda revealed that this year the Miss Egypt pageant will be low key due to lack of time for preparation and will take place tentatively in October to select representative to Miss Universe 2017. A brand new pageant will be officially launched next year.  (Source by Missosology)
