Anne Murielle Ravina is studying political science with a specialization in international relations at the University of Mauritius (UoM). Modeling, which is one of her favorite pastimes, has always been a side event where she could express her many talents. After studying at Rodrigues College, where she studied literature and art, natural beauty led her to participate in beauty contests in Mauritius. Encouraged by her parents and friends, she participated in the Miss Mauritius 2012 and was among the twelve finalists.

Entertainment was provided by Ankur Dance Group, UoM Dance Club, the Askaben Group, the winner of the Rays Club cover song competition in 2015 Hans Veerapaten and vocalist Jeremy Chan.
The jury consisted of Meera Ramchurn, director of Wedding Magazine and Events Olala, Ameeksha Dilchand, Miss Mauritius 2011 and Sarvesh Dussoye, psychologist.
The representatives of different faculties competed in four events: Summer Wear Saree and Traditional Wear, Evening Gown and a series of questions and answers.
