Miss World 2019 Top Model Competition second round was held on November 25th at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, founded by Zandra Rhodes.
Trinidad and Tobago’s own stunning Tya Jané Ramey made it into the Top 10 delegates of the competition, with all contestants against the backdrop of the ‘Zandra Rhodes 50 Years Of Fabulous’ exhibition – at Miss World 2019.
The Trinbagonian beauty stands in prominence alongside representatives from Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Hong Kong, India, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Uganda and Vietnam, for the final round and is currently forecasted as number one in the Caribbean and among the top five in the world.
She also ranks high on the international leaderboards, owing to her unique strengths in the various fast track competitions (Sports and Fitness, Beauty with a Purpose, Talent).
“It’s an encouraging feeling to receive the well-wishes, the words of encouragement from supporters and general positivity from everyone, and that kind of morale boost really puts the Miss World experience in perspective for any delegate,” explained Ramey to BUZZ.
Tya Jané Ramey is a past student of Bishop Anstey High School East who worked her way to represent her peers as valedictorian of the 2015 class. She started her pre-tertiary education at UWI Open Campus, fuelling her passion for Social Work and Social Policy.
“It really serves as a simple reminder that the Miss World Trinidad and Tobago title is much bigger than just the crown: it’s a chance to openly celebrate our culture and the warmth of our people. It also presents me with a unique opportunity to be an ambassador for what the red, white and black is all about on the global stage” said Ramey.
Co-owner for Miss World Trinidad and Tobago Franchise, Brian Gopaul, said that he, business partner Dr Reiaz Mohammed and the extended team were excited by the wonderful developments for Ms Ramey in the Top Model Competition.
“We’re very proud of Tya Jané. Getting to know her, you can tell that she really represents everything that Trinidad and Tobago stands for. She loves her country, and she is the epitome of beauty with a purpose.”
Each of the 120 contestants will compete in a series of fast track events that guarantee a place in the top 40 at the final. In addition to Top Model, these events include Sport, Talent, Head to Head Challenge, Multimedia and the Beauty With A Purpose programme. The last time a Caribbean representative walked away with the crown was in 1986 when Trinidad and Tobago’s Giselle La Ronde (now West) was named the winner.
The 69th edition of the Miss World pageant will be held on Dec 14th, at the ExCeL London, London, United Kingdom. Anticipation is high as the reigning Miss World, Vanessa Ponce from Mexico, will crown her successor.
