Miss Jamaica World Dr Sanneta Myrie today finished in top five of the 65th Miss World Competition in Sanya, China.
Myrie had joined Spain, Russia, Indonesia, and Lebanon in top five, but the competition was eventually won by Spain.
Third place went to Indonesia and Russia finished second.
After making the top five cut, Myrie was asked why she should be named Miss World 2015, to which she responded that she was already grateful for the opportunity to be in China representing her country.
“My story is one of a little girl whose life was transformed with charity and love and my quest in life is to give that back to as many people as I can, and to inspire the world with my story, that no matter where you are from, your skin type your hair colour, your situation — your dreams are valid.
And I believe that beauty with a purpose embodies my quest and if I was blessed with the crown tonight, I would dedicate my essence to give back to the world in a purposeful and beautiful way with charity and love,” she said.
Myrie did not walk away with the crown but she made the top five cut from a field of more than 120 contestants.
Myrie also finished third in the Miss World Talent section of the competition.
