Here is another double-hyphenated delegate for Miss Universe (much like Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters last year), and she also happens to be the first woman of colour to win the Miss Universe Great Britain.
She is Dee-Ann Kentish-Rogers, a 25 year-old dreadlocked beauty who hails from the British Territory of Anguilla. She is also a competitive athlete in heptathlon. Academics-wise, she is a Law graduate of the University of Birmingham and an aspiring barrister (a lawyer with specialist skills in representing clients in court or in a negotiation and advising on court processes).
Watch her in this video now.
A quote from Dee-Ann herself:
“It’s really humbling and I think it’s also a privilege for me to become the first Black woman who is crowned Miss Universe Great Britain. I believe that this is the direction that the pageant has been going in for the last couple of years because Britain is a diverse nation, we are a multicultural society and it is time that that diversity is seen on a stage where other young Black girls and girls of all ethnicities can see that this is something for everybody not just some of us.”
What’s your take on Miss Universe Great Britain, dear readers?
