Rabiya joins 73 international beauties in the 69th edition of Ms. Universe in Florida, USA. Amid the pandemic, the candidates entered a "bubble" as the competition officially began on May 9, Sunday. Rabiya flew to the U.S. in April to attend pre-pageant activities.

The Miss Universe 2020 coronation night will be broadcasted live on May 16 (May 17 in Manila).
