Justine Pasek - Miss Universe 2002 From Panama Replaces Oxana Fedorova from Russia

New York, NY September 23, 2002 The Miss Universe Organization announced today that Oxana Fedorova of Russia has been terminated as MISS UNIVERSE 2002, and the first runner-up, Justine Pasek of Panama, will ascend to the title and serve the remaining nine months of the reign. "We are disappointed that it did not work out with Oxana, but we wish her all the best in her future endeavors," explains Paula Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization. "We are extremely excited that Justine Pasek will be wearing the crown and are confident that she will be a great Miss Universe, and a wonderful representative of our company, and its sponsors and charities," adds Shugart.

Justine Pasek, a crowd favorite during the 2002 MISS UNIVERSE competition, is a 22-year-old native of Panama. She works in television production and plans to complete a degree in Environmental Engineering, someday working for the Smithsonian Research Center, educating the public about conservation. "I am looking forward to taking on the responsibilities of MISS UNIVERSE and moving to New York City. I will work to make this transition as easy as possible for the Miss Universe Organization and its supporters, sponsors and charitable partners, so that I can quickly and seamlessly get to the work that must get done," said Pasek.

As Pasek steps into the role of MISS UNIVERSE 2002 she will travel extensively working with internationally recognized AIDS/HIV organizations, including the Global Health Council, the Harvard AIDS Institute, AmFAR, and the Center for Disease Control's "Act Now" campaign. As a "celebrity" spokesperson, she will be responsible for working with the media globally to generate a better understanding and acceptance of AIDS and HIV and its prevention; while helping increase awareness, funding and resources for these key organizations.

The Miss Universe Organization, producer of the MISS UNIVERSE, MISS USA and MISS TEEN USA Pageants, is a Donald J. Trump and National Broadcasting Company, Inc. (NBC) partnership.
