REIGNING Miss Grand Bahama, Shequera King, will travel to Zimbabwe to compete in the Miss Heritage World Pageant.
King, 24, is preparing to participate in the pageant’s debate section, to be held November 29 to December 7 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Glen Davis, president of the Miss Grand Bahama organisation, said he was confident the beauty queen will do well at the competition in Africa.
“Our organisation is known around the world, and we were contacted by Miss Heritage World to send a representative,” Davis said. “We are excited to be sending Miss Grand Bahama to this pageant in Africa.”
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to represent the Bahamas at the Miss Heritage World beauty pageant in Zimbabwe, Africa this month,” she said.
“Never having gone anywhere outside of the Bahamas and the United States, it’s surreal that I will be travelling across the world to compete for this coveted title – and to the motherland at that!
“I am extremely excited and confident that I will do exceptionally well. I have been making all of the necessary preparations to ensure that I am an excellent representative of the Bahamas and an ideal candidate for the crown,” she said.
“However, in spite of what happens, I will be sure that Zimbabwe remembers the Bahamas was there. I am geared up, all set, and ready to go,” King said.
