Melina Carballo, a student of travel and tourism, was crowned Miss World Uruguay 2017 at the finale of the pageant held on 13th September 2017. She succeeds beautiful Romina Trotto, Miss World Uruguay 2016, and will now travel to China to compete in Miss World 2017 to be held in November this year. Romina, who represented Uruguay in Miss World 2016 held in the United States of America, was placed amongst Top 24 finalists and Melina would like to outperform her predecessor this year in Miss World 2017.

Melina is 20 years of age and stands tall at 175 cm, with almost perfect measurements of 87-60-90.  She is not new to pageantry as she earlier represented her country in Miss Grand International 2016 when she became the first-ever candidate from Uruguay to compete in Miss Grand International. She, however, remained unplaced at the finale. This did not deter her from competing in beauty pageants, as she comes back strongly this year to win Miss World Uruguay 2017!

When asked as to what values a beauty queen should have, she replied in an interview "I think the values are the same for any profession and anyone because they are the ones that you acquire as a child, those taught to you at home, at school and define you as a person. Human values are those which are responsible for directing the actions of people, are all things that provide them to defend and grow in their dignity. I consider that it is essential to keep in mind the love, gratitude, respect, kindness, dignity, generosity, honesty, perseverance and many more; but one that I see very important and I believe that it must be always present accompanying us is humility, since with humility one can achieve everything in life."

What do you think of the newly crowned beauty from Uruguay?
