Miss World Trinidad & Tobago, Tya Jane La Shon Ramey, was chosen by the organisers of the Miss World competition to speak at the House of Lords on behalf of the Caribbean. Upon arrival, fellow Trinidadian, Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE, greeted her and other contestants.
Baroness Benjamin spoke to the contestants about her life and explained what being a member of the House of Lords meant to her, as the first woman from Trinidad & Tobago to be a member. She also spoke of her personal philosophy for success, ‘consideration, contentment and confidence’, and urged them to all make a difference – to make the world a better place.
The final of the Miss World 2019 competition takes place on Saturday 14 December at ExCeL London. To view all the contestants, visit www.missworld.com.
