Florinda will advocate ‘education for all’ through her reign. “Education is the main factor for the social and economic development of a country, education is the future, so why not invest in children's education? This is my social cause”, she quotes.

Miss Mundo Angola 2021 Ruth Carlos competed at Miss World 2021 but failed to place in the Top 40. Angola has yet to win the Miss World pageant. The country's highest placement was first runner-up in 2007 with Micaela Reis.
