Toni-Ann Singh became the fourth Jamaican to win the Miss World title.

LONDON, England, Monday December 16, 2019 – Toni-Ann Singh won Miss World 2019 over the weekend to become the fourth Jamaican winner of the title.

“To…all the girls around the world – please believe in yourself. Please know that you are worthy and capable of achieving your dreams,” the 23-year-old student tweeted on Saturday after winning the title at the 69th edition of the pageant in London.

She beat 111 other contestants after impressing the judges with her answers to a variety of questions and singing Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’.

Singh is a women’s studies and psychology student at Florida State University who aspires to be a medical doctor. Previously she worked as president of the Caribbean students association on campus.

Jamaica’s Culture Minister Olivia Grange, reacting to Singh’s victory, said the beauty queen was “a most deserving winner” and she had made the entire country proud.

“She is an outstanding young woman with a wonderful personality, a beautiful soul, and extraordinary talent. She represented Jamaica so well during this competition and now we all have an amazing new Miss World. Toni-Ann is clearly the best choice,” Grange said.

“We are all walking on air, especially the girls at the Women’s Centre of Jamaica Foundation location in St Thomas — Toni-Ann is so passionate about her parish and women’s issues — and she has been working with us at the Ministry to make a difference in the lives of the young girls who attend the Centre.”

The other Jamaicans who won the title before Singh were Carole Joan Crawford in 1963, Cindy Breakspeare in 1976 and Lisa Hanna in 1993.

    Latinos, East Indians and African-mixed girls are getting more popular these days than the usual refined flour bread type of females.

    Trini man in an ABC country tell me that most of the locally grown females get fat and hate on men that they deliberately make themselves ugly to scare off men. This is also being emulated by certain Guyanese here too, wouldn’t say who, but to quote from Freddie Kissoon, they are “middle class”.

    Women of colour, as they state abroad, are more beautiful than a pale-skin. Be proud of your melanin because we don’t live in caves!

      Trevor, the cake baked in the sun is sweeter. Nutin better than Jamaican patties and cakes.
