Dr Sanneta Myrie, a medical doctor, was crowned Miss Jamaica World 2015 on Saturday night. The 24-year-old said she entered the competition to break down the stereotype of beauty.
“As Miss Jamaica World 2015, I hope to break down the stereotype of beauty and inspire young Jamaicans to dare to reach for their brightest dreams, regardless of hair texture, skin colour and social background,” she said. The 65th edition of the Miss World pageant will be held on 19 December 2015 at the Crown of Beauty Theatre in Sanya, China.
Myrie was previously awarded the top prize for the Miss Jamaica World Talent Competition and was also dubbed the favourite to win by patrons and social media users.
Royanne DeSilva was first runner-up and Roshelle McKinley, who walked away with the award for the best figure was second runner-up.
