Another year, another two talented beauties crowned Your Highness Grandmother.
The 12th year of the event took place October 19 at National Restaurant, where Roza Mordukhayeva, 80, was crowned Queen Grandmother and Galina Basova, 68, won the Grandmother title for the younger batch of beauts.
Murdokhayeva was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. She worked as a nurse for more than 45 years, and adores children. Dancing and singing are her true passion, and Murdokhayeva has performed in the pageant, organized by the Be Proud Foundation, multiple times. She has four grandchildren, and one great grandson.
The other lovely lady, Basova, is from Russia. She’s seen her family grow tremendously stateside, and is now the proud grandmother of five. She studied communications at the institute of Leningrad, and has just one hobby: travel.
The event celebrates the lives of grandmothers across Southern Brooklyn. It’s a good-natured competition, based on dancing, singing, talents, costume design and more. It’s judged by a panel of those who love grandmothers best: grandfathers.
Congratulations to Basova and Mordukhayeva!
