Miss World Guyana franchise eyes hosting int’l competition in Guyana
Ten delegates are once again vying for the title of Miss World Guyana and while the competition promises to be fierce, ably preparing one young woman to represent Guyana internationally, the Miss World Guyana franchise is eyeing the possibility of hosting the global competition in Guyana in the coming years.
“We feel strongly that we cannot only win a Miss World competition but also host the next Miss World competition here in the very near future,” Franchise Chairman Dave Laltoo told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday.
According to Laltoo, the world would be enticed by the beauty of Guyana, backed by the “royalty and strength that lives through every Guyanese woman.”
The Miss World pageant is the oldest running international beauty pageant in the world. At this competition, scores of young women showcase their beauty, talent and passion for community development through their ‘beauty with a purpose’ projects.
The ten finalists vying for the title of Miss World Guyana are: Andrea King, Anjanie Lall, Arian Richmond, Emily Nurse, Esther Marslowe, Krystal Collymore, Raeshaunna Jones, Malinda Ho-a-Lim, Naina Pai and Trevlind Harry.
Throughout August, they are expected to engage in a host of activities meant to introduce them to the public, build their profile and have them prove why they would be the best candidate to represent Guyana internationally.
Starting on August 1, there will be an appointment ceremony for the contestants; in subsequent days, they will participate in various competitions meant to test different skills and talents.
On August 18, Miss World Guyana will host a Charity gala that offers the young women the opportunity to spread awareness of their community projects and finally, on August 21, there will be the grand coronation.
