Alexandria Mills, an 18-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky, was just crowned Miss World in southern China. Her big win was a bit of a surprise after much of the attention during the competition was focused on other contestants, reports NPR.

Coming in second was Emma Wareus of Botswana, followed by Adriana Vasini of Venezuela. Mills won the competition out of a pool of 100 women from around the world and got the crown passed down to her from 2009’s winner, Miss Gibraltar, Kaiane Aldorino.
Alexandria, who just graduated from high school, apparently wants to become a teacher and says on her bio on the Miss World site: “I’ve never met a stranger and enjoy meeting new people.”
