Medical student, Kuchipudi dancer, poet and sports enthusiast Manushi Chhillar was last Saturday crowned the new Miss World.
The Indian queen took back the crown to her country after 17 years and is touted as an inspiration for many around the world.
While Guyana’s Vena Mookram did not place in the pageant, she said she does not regret the experience.
In a Facebook video, Vena thanked all of Guyana for supporting her and said while she did not win she did “try my best and I put my all into it.”
Vena had bested nine other contestants to be crowned the Miss Guyana World.
