Miss Jamaica World, 24 year old Solange Sinclair, returned to this island this morning, after finishing in the top 10 and copping the Caribbean Queen of Beauty award at the Miss World pageant in Sanya, China on Saturday. 

Sinclair was met on arrival at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, by Senior Advisor/Strategist in the Ministry of Tourism Delano Seiveright, and head of Miss Jamaica World organisation, Mickey Haughton-James.

Seiveright said, “Solange has made our country proud. She was very popular, and her fluency in Spanish and French endeared her to a lot of people. She represented Jamaica very well, and also gave our island nation a lot of positive publicity globally.”

He noted that the Government of Jamaica will work closely with Sinclair and the Miss Jamaica World organisation in achieving their national and international social objectives.

Sinclair, a marketing and advertising executive, is cousin of 2014 Miss Universe Jamaica Kaci Fennell, and granddaughter of late Jamaican Hollywood actress Madge Sinclair. She is also the niece of Cable & Wireless Caribbean president Garry Sinclair.

Miss World is the oldest running international beauty pageant. Jamaica has won three times — in 1963, Carol Joan Crawford, 1976, Cindy Breakspeare and 1993, Lisa Hanna. One hundred and eighteen contestants competed for the 2017 Miss World title.
