The 70th edition of Miss World pageant, Miss World 2021, is set to be held on 16th December 2021 at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico where Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica will crown her successor at the end of the event finale. There was no pageant held in 2020 due to the rampant spread of Covid-19 across the world.

While almost all the delegates have finally arrived in the host country and have begun with the registration process for the competition, the Miss World organization has officially drawn groups for the Head to Head challenge of the 70th edition of the pageant.

The organization has recently begun with the group interviews for the challenge and the first interview that has been uploaded by the organization is of Group 4 including Poland, Sri Lanka, Cayman Islands, Scotland, Serbia and Honduras.

The round was hosted by Vanessa Ponce de Leon Miss World 2018 and Jack Heslewood Miss World 2019. The stunning hosts introduced the challenge as they introduced the contestants, shared their presentation videos and asked questions and finally the contestants were asked questions at the end of the round.

Starting the round with Poland, Karolina Bielawska, shared a gorgeous presentation revolving around her life, her country and the people. Her passion for travelling has taught her empathy as she believes that we have so much more in common than what sets us apart. “Being Miss Polania has taught me that with every blessing comes an opportunity to use it for good, so I began to volunteer. I have learned to use my platform for various charities,” she added.

Sade Greenwood, representing Sri Lanka was up next as she introduced herself through a video. She hopes to one day help children in need of education in her country as she feels strongly about education and children. Her Beauty With A Purpose project is about a marine conservation group of university students, who work towards plastic pollution effecting the marine lives in the Indian Ocean.

Cayman Island’s Rashana Hydes shared her purposes behind her journey next. “I knew that my lifelong calling to lead, to inspire, to give back could all be achieved through beauty with a Purpose,” she mentioned. The diva also shared about the kind Caymanian traits and her being proud of the island’s culture.

Scotland was up next as Claudia Francesca Todd as she shared the culture and architecture of her hometown, Glasgow. She took the world along on a virtual ride throughout the city with picturesque landscapes and ancient history. Moving on with Serbia, Adrijana Savic, shared how education is important for her for she believes that knowledge is power. She also strolled around the Belgrade city presenting its beautiful monuments and historical stories.

Coming onto the last presentation, Honduras’ Dayana Bordas was instilled with service as a fundamental pillar, she always carried the message, “We came to serve the world,” in her heart. She also shared, “I decided to study medicine out of the desire to help my people through my learning, I want to fulfill many dreams that will benefit others through my profession.” With her ‘Light of Hope’ project she seeks to touch hearts and change lives by giving the children of her land, a place to receive the bread of knowledge.

Towards the end of the round, the six divas were all randomly questioned by the hosts. Going up first, Poland was asked about the biggest challenge faced by women today, to which Karolina answered, “I think there are a lot of challenges that women are facing today all over the world, however I don’t understand why there are so many indifferences even though we have created as equally important gender, so I think that it’s not only we’ve been judging by the stereotypes and are inequal in different aspects. I know that all over the world there are some places young girls are not able to choose their dreams.”



Answering second, Sri Lanka was asked about the best piece of advice she would give to the younger generation, to which Greenwood responded saying, “My best piece of advice would be no matter how small you think your impact is in the world, do something about it. And in relation to that, I would like to say that in terms of climate change, we have to start acting now. I believe that my best piece of advice would be to the next generation that no matter how small, it is an impact at the end of the day. Together we can do wonders and can help stop climate change. Start small and collectively we can stand united to do something great.”

Cayman Islands was asked next about what qualities she thinks Miss World should have. Rashana beautifully answered, “With the world the way that it is right now, the next Miss World has huge responsibility in her hands. She has to unite people in a time when we are all going through the same thing, the pandemic, the effects of the pandemic, mental health wise, financially, emotionally, so the next queen needs to be someone with an open heart and mind, empathetic and compassionate. She also needs to someone who lives her life as truly as she can.”

Scotland’s Claudia was asked about her most inspiring moment as she shared, “An inspiring moment in my llife was definitely when I was 22 years-old and unfortunately I contracted a really serious deadly disease. All m, family and friends came together as ojne to support me an from being a fit healthy girl to being sick, it showed me that family and your friends matter the most and your health is so important.”

Moving on to Serbia, her final question was, “Besides winning the national title, what else are you proud of?” “The thing which I most appreciate is that I became ambassador of a children village in Serbia. The children who live there are in need of passion and I am always there for them and their smile and happiness makes me feel proud,” Adrijana shared.

The final question of the day, Dayan Bordas of Honduras was asked about her role model and she shared that it happens to be her father. “It’s not for what he has achieved or for everything that he has given us. In spite of all the adversity that he has faced, he was born into a family that were separated when he was young, he has so much love to give. He has been an exemplary father. He has always taught us that you come to the world to serve others and that one does not live to serve is not worthy of living. He has taught us that your worth is not in what you possess or in your looks but in what you have in your heart,” an emotional Dayan shared.

The divas from all over the world will move forward in the 15 groups drawn by the organization, where each group will have a winner and then two by two winners will compete with one another until one ultimate winner is determined through voting on the Miss World website, who will then get an automatic spot in the top for the final night. In this challenge, each of the ladies will be given the chance to speak about their passions and Beauty with a Purpose projects.
