Despite the pandemic causing disruption all across the world, the organisers of the Miss Guyana Online UK Contest 2020 managed to host the contest online. They began on 27 July, with five participants; online voting lasted for two weeks, and the winner was announced later on Sunday, 9 August.
All of the participants displayed extraordinary beauty and elegance, making the decision a tough one for many, but the eventual winner, crowned Miss Guyana UK online 2020, was Cindy Singh. The four runners up were Ablavi Efunshile, Rihanna Levi, Siobhan Watson-Griffith, and Nadine Nichols.
Born in Georgetown Guyana, Cindy Geetangali Singh moved to London at the age of 9. She currently works as a care home manager and is the proud mother of two young boys. As beautiful inside as she is outside, Cindy is passionate about her work. She is also a community organiser, currently working as an ambassador for her local Tottenham Community Press Newspaper and Community Cook-up, and volunteers with the Community Cook-Up Centre and Food Bank.
Cindy says that she has been waiting for this opportunity for eight years. She considers herself a proud Guyanese woman, and will stop at nothing to help her family and friends whenever they’re in need. She managed to dazzle the audience and win their hearts, finally winning the crown of the Miss Guyana UK 2020.
Since its formation in 1994, the Miss Guyana UK Beauty Pageant has aimed to provide a platform to showcase the wealth of Guyanese culture alongside its rich heritage. The Guyanese culture comes from an interesting mix of six different peoples: African, Indian, Portuguese, Chinese, European, and Amerindian.
The Miss Guyana UK Beauty Pageant is one of a kind, as it puts on display these diverse and unique ethnic groups in the traditional and fashionable Guyanese wear.
