Miss Seychelles…Another World 2015 contest to focus on “beauty with a purpose”

Miss Seychelles…Another World 2015 contest to focus on “beauty with a purpose” ( Beauty is not just about the physical appearance, but it is also the inner qualities that one possesses. This is the strong message that the Seychelles Tourism Board wants to pass on to the future young ladies who wish to take part in the Miss Seychelles…Another World contest and become the country’s beauty queen and ambassador.

For the second year, the Seychelles Tourism Board is focusing on beauty with a purpose for the Miss Seychelles…Another World 2015 contest.

This year’s beauty contest was officially launched by the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Chief Executive Sherin Naiken during a press conference with the local media representatives.

Miss Seychelles…Another World was re-launched in 2012 with Sherlyn Furneau taking the crown home. In 2013, Miss Furneau crowned her successor Agnes Gerry as the country’s beauty queen.

“The Seychelles Tourism Board will this year focus on other aspects of beauty, not just the physical appearance. We will emphasize on the beauty with a purpose project, artistic and sports talents,” Miss Naiken said.

Last year, contestants competed for the Miss Talent and Miss Sports title, and the winners were then announced and crowned during the pageant night.

She added that all these aspects are part of the Miss World contest and serve as a plus for the one who will represent Seychelles at this international pageant.

She gave the example of our present Miss Seychelles…Another World Camila Estico, which she said is a success story, as the beauty queen was able to reach the quarter finals of the Miss Talent portion of the Miss World pageant.

Miss Naiken pointed out that this year since the contest is putting more focus on the project, there will be a few changes to be made to the bikini round during the crowning night. The Seychelles Tourism Board will relook at this element of the contest.

She added that joining this contest is a chance of a lifetime.

“The Seychelles Tourism Board can open doors for the new beauty queen, but she also needs to have the willpower and devotion to push forward,” she said.

Miss Naiken calls for more support from the business community in terms of sponsorship to support the country’s beauty queen during her reign, as this has proved to be one of the major challenges for the Seychelles Tourism Board.

She said as Miss Seychelles, the young lady will have to represent the country at the international level, work on her project, and also take part in events at the national level.

As Miss Seychelles…Another World is an ambassador of the islands, she must be a role model and one who promotes good values.

People look up to her, especially the young ones, so she needs to uphold a positive image and one who is against substance abuse, so the candidates who apply will have to be tested.

After the potential candidates have been auditioned, 12 will be chosen for the contest, and they in turn will have to follow a three-month intensive program.

Miss Naiken said the beauty contest is not just about being on the catwalk, but it can open new doors, help develop character, personality, and even a career.

Those who wish to join this year’s Miss Seychelles…Another World 2015 must be a Seychellois national aged 18 to 24.

Entry forms can be collected at the Seychelles Tourism Board’s information offices in Victoria on Praslin and La Digue.

The forms can also be downloaded from the link – in the downloads section. Ladies who wish to take part in contesting for this year’s crown, have until February 9 to submit their forms.
