Vena Mookram took the Miss World stage last evening

Last evening 18-year-old Vena Mookram would have flown the Guyana flag high on stage at the 67th Miss World pageant at the Sanya City Arena in Sanya, China.

Vena who had bested nine other contestants in June last to cop the opportunity to represent Guyana, would have gone up against 118 contestants at the pageant which was slated for November 18, but because China is 24 hours ahead of Guyana the pageant would have been held last night Guyana time.

In one her recent updates on Facebook, Vena said that days prior to the pageant had been extremely rough.

“I unfortunately did not place for fitness or top model. Being in a competition of this nature really pushes you to your limits and tests your faith and strength to move on despite setbacks,” she said.

She pointed out that while sometimes one may give of their best, all it may mean is for “you have to take some time to look back at where you went wrong, and try 10 times harder. I may have missed my chance to be in the top 40 in those 3 areas but I’m still here committed and trying my very best for you Guyana with the other challenges left. We’ve done very well in the past with Multimedia and Beauty with a purpose and I am hoping this year is no different with your help.”

The Scene is sure that all Guyana supported Vena.
