According to a release from the committee, Face of the Universe Beauty Pageant seeks to identify a contestant with a universal face, height, body, elegance, poise, attitude, oratorical abilities to wear the ambassadorial crown. The competition was born in the wake of Ghana’s 50th Independence Celebrations (Ghana’s Golden Jubilee), to showcase the advancements that the country had recorded in various industries.

The release said that Simmons is scheduled to visit London on her way to Ghana where she will meet Miss World franchise holder Ken Chung.
At present, the beauty queen is undergoing lessons in Guyana’s history and culture; public speaking; interview techniques; voice tone and projection, etiquette; and catwalk skills in the run-up for the Miss World competition.

During her one-month long stay in Johannesburg, where she would join delegates from over 100 countries, Simmons would take part in a number of scheduled activities and be photographed at many of Johannesburg’s landmarks

Meanwhile, the release said, Miss Guyana World Candace Charles will leave for the Czech Republic next Friday to represent Guyana at the Miss Europe and World Junior pageant from September 20 to October 5, 2008.
