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 6 including Norway, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Guadeloupe and Belize.

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 with Norway, Amine Storrod shared about her land, her family values and her love for figure skating.  She shared that her diverse country welcomes people from all over the world which means they are allowed to voice their opinions. “I want to represent Norway as a good and healthy role model who believes in herself and people around me,” she added.

Next up for Kenya, Sharon Obara introduced the land of abundance and kindness. As a person who has passionately championed for the well-being of individuals living with neurological and cognitive disorders and related mental health disorders, Sharon looks forward to using this platform to bring about national and global change.

Jeanine Brandt representing Trinidad and Tobago was up next. With an educational background in business management she was able to make her passion for makeup into a career. She has learnt the importance of spirituality, compassion, humanity and gratitude and that we all have the power to change lives. She also shared that she hopes to provide girls with opportunities to thrive and to give them a sense of security.

Moving ahead, Turkey’s Dilara Korkmaz shared the history and amazing experiences that the country possesses. She also shared that she will be representing the modern woman of the country. Introducing Guadeloup, Prescilla Larose, took the world throughout the magnificent landscapes of the country. Her philosophy is, “Enjoy every bit of your life but never forget where you came from.”

Next to meet the world was Markeisha Young of Belize, who believes that every young adult deserves the same opportunity to better themselves and make the slightest change in the world. She also shared, “Change is never easy but always possible and it starts from within. I am so excited to be a part of the beauty with a purpose sisterhood and to help young people all around the world to turn their capabilities into opportunities.”

Towards the end of the round, the six divas were all randomly questioned by the hosts. Going up first Amine Storrod of Norway was asked, “What is the biggest challenge women face today?” to which she replied, “I think it is different in all over the world, because the culture is really different all over the world.” She also shared her conversations with fellow sisters who shared different experiences.

Onto Kenya, Sharon was asked, “What’s the best advice you would give to the younger generation.” She answered, “The best advice is to take time to know yourself and grow yourself as a person. In this way you will not feel pressure looking at people achieving more than you at a given time and space.”



Next up questioning Trinidad and Tobago, the host asked her about what qualities she thinks the Miss World should have. Jeanine beautifully answered, “I believe wearing the Miss World crown comes with a lot of strength, compassion and love. What matters is how much love you put into what you give. It doesn’t matter how small your project is, because no project is small once you put your heart and soul into it that is all you need and all that matters.”

Turkey’s Dilara was asked about what isshe proud of besides winning her national title. Answering the same, she replied that graduating her university made her proud coming out of all the stress and striving through the years was all worth it looking at her mother at the moment.

Guadeloupe was next as she was asked about the most inspiring moment in her life. Prescilla shared, “I worked in London a few years ago and I wanted to challenge myself again, I keep doing that actually, I didn’t finish my school in France so I went to London and kept continuing mastering in Paris and tried something else back in London. Since London is expensive, I was also a full time worker as a waitress and had no social life, just working in the day and studying in the night.” She shared that she herself inspired her with all the hardwork that made her the woman she is.

Last but not the least, Markeisha Young of Belize was asked who her who her role model was, to which she emotionally shared that, “My role model is my mother. She embodies what it is to be strong, independent, resilient and kind woman.” She also hopes to pass on the values her mother instilled in her to her future generation.

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.
