Miss World Kenya Charity Mwangi returned from the month-long competitive World Final on Monday.
Celebrations were rife at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on her arrival.
The 65th edition of the Miss World pageant was held on December 19th, 2015 at the Beauty of Crown Theater in Sanya, China PR. 114 contestants from all over the world competed.
Rolene Strauss of South Africa crowned Mireia Lalaguna of Spain as her successor at the end of the event.
This is the first time Spain has won the title of Miss World.
Russia took 2nd place while Indonesia came in 3rd.
Though Charity did not manage to bring the crown home, she made Kenya proud and was grateful for what she achieved.
“Kenya made it to top 30 out of 114, beauty with a purpose project was rated top 15 out of 114,” she said.
“I was also number 4 in the sport team of top 6. I also got recognition for the best-dressed overall in my team. Kenya’s auction item was among the best 5 picked out of 114 countries at the charity gala. We thank God.”
The models were staying at the Luxurious Beauty Crown Grand Hotel in Sanya, China Republic as they participated in what was a series of grueling activities.
The activities included Beauty with a Purpose (charity projects and selfless acts within the community), multimedia, sports and fitness, talent competition and a high profile catwalk where they will have an opportunity to show their modeling credentials and of course the most important one, the interview by the judges.
The range of the activities earned the contestants points, where the person who accumulated the highest points would take the crown.
The group was not only scheduled to have a jam-packed calendar of competitive activities but also got an opportunity to experience the exotic wonders of Sanya and Hainan Island.
