As she quotes Daniel J. Boorstin, an American Social Historian, who once said “Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know”, absolutely no one would hold us responsible for saying Malawi’s beauty queen Susan Mtegha is having the best experience of her lifetime in China?
The reigning Miss Malawi, who left the country on July 16, is in the People’s Republic of China where she is expected to participate at this year’s Miss World beauty pageant scheduled to take place on August 18.
With Boorstin’s citation, the 24-year-old expressed her excitement in her trip as, on Sunday, she wrote on the Miss World – Malawi Facebook page: “…that’s world enough to tell how am greatful [sic] for this opportunity because I have learnt so much and am still learning. Miss World is a great experience.”
“Today we say good buy [sic] to Changshu and tomorrow we fly back to Ordos.. wow it has been a beautiful experience, words cannot even start to describe the warmth and appreciation for such a great opportunity.”
Added Miss Malawi: “yesterday was exciting the boat ride and site seeing at Chanshu wet lands and today was equally exciting site seeing at the lake.”
According to her last update, ever since she arrived in China, the Malawian had no roommate until Monday because the person who was to be her roommate never showed up. “But today am happy I was given a roommate, Miss Botswana.”
Apart from visiting numerous Chinese tourist sites, the contestants have also participated in the first challenge of the competition, the World Fashion Designer Award, which took place in Shanghai on July 27.
Each designer showcased the work of a designer from their home country and during the dresses galore, Miss Malawi displayed the dress that was made by Lilly Alfonso.
“Malawi is draped in turquoise and chocolate brown in what looks like raw silk, it’s textured and stunning,” that was the description Mtegha got during the show.
The 62nd edition of the Miss World beauty pageant was expected to have over 100 participants from across the world, with Africa having 20 representatives.
Mtegha is the fourth model to represent the Malawi at the World beauty pageant, after Elizabeth Pulu (2001), Rachael Landson (2005) and Ella Kabambe (2010).Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
