It was not so much a contest about beauty, but about humanity. The inaugural Miss Humanity International competition was held last week in Barbados. Some 15 participants from around the globe took part, showcasing the
issues they faced in their countries and their personal actions to solve them by membership in, and in some cases, founding of humanitarian or charitable organisations. At the finale on October 22nd the competition was deservedly won by Miss Lesotho ( Karabelo Mokoallo with her project Beauty on a Mission), with Miss Dominica taking a prize for Best National Costume. Founder Stephanie Yates is to be congratulated on successfully organising the first of what we hope will be an annual event. Here’s a gallery of photos from the event.
