Taking Barbados to the World – Miss Barbados World 2011
After travelling the globe and making her own mark at Miss World 2009 in South Africa, Leah Marville has decided to share the life-changing Miss Barbados World experience with future contestants. As the new franchise holder, Leah is working to make this year’s journey exciting and educational. The contestants will have the full support of the Miss Barbados World coordinating team who will offer assistance in every aspect of the program.
Unlike fellow Caribbean islands Trinidad and Jamaica, Barbados is not known for its attention to international pageants. Leah hopes that the patriotic camaraderie inspired by the legacy of Miss World can be achieved right here in Barbados.
The management of Miss Barbados World is also raising the stakes with some amazing prizes as they work to turn this into a platform for academic and career advancement.
“What many of us do not realize is that the entire Miss World arena is about development- personal and national. We create better communities only by being better citizens. The Beauty With a Purpose element is an incredible opportunity to draw international support for a contestant’s personal cause.”
