Miss Grand Türkiye Deria Koc gets emotional during the closed door interviews at Miss Grand International 2022 pageant. The event took place on October 16, 2022 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The judges included former Miss Grand International titleholders Lees Garcia (2014), Ariska Putri Pertiwi (2016), MGI Vice-President Teresa Chaivisut, and MGI President Nawat Itsaragrisil. Deria was doing well for the first couple of minutes until she becomes emotional while sharing her experience as a refugee counselor. Then she addresses her weight problem by sharing a shocking story, admits that she's not the prettiest girl in the contest and that she will not win the golden crown, but tells the judges that she at least deserves a top 20 spot and this would make her happy.
