SHAMEEZA ‘Jasmine’ Wong is currently in St. Kitts, representing Guyana at the Miss Black San International Pageant, which is slated for tomorrow, where several Caribbean queens will compete in the swimsuit pageant for the international title and grand prizes.
After bringing home the crown two consecutive years, 2017 and 2018, the Miss Black San Guyana 2019 team is confident that the crown will be awarded to Guyana for the third year in a row.
The 26-year-old Guyanese beauty was born in Mabaruma and is the eighth of 10 children.
Wong said she feels amazing to have been selected to be her country’s representative, but a little pressured because of the shoe she has to fill.
“I’m somewhat pressured to bring this crown home, because there are big footprints for me to follow through. But I’m confident in myself and the amazing team that’s on deck with me,” she said.
In 2015, Wong represented Guyana at the Miss West Indies Pageant and the Miss Global International Pageant.
She holds a BSc in Communication, and is a freelance model, actress and dedicated volunteer.
Mwanza Glenn, who is the newly-appointed franchise director for Guyana, said that his team is aiming to continue the winning trend with Guyana’s representative.
The previous representative that was announced could not have continued with the preparations, due to unforeseen circumstances.
However, Glenn has confidence in Wong.
“Although the preparation for the pageant was a bit late, the dedicated and hardworking team of professionals will leave no stone unturned, ensuring that our queen is prepared for every leg of the competition,” Glenn said, adding:
“It is without a shadow of a doubt that Miss Guyana Black San International acknowledges the legacy left by the previous beauty ambassadors, and hopes to bring even more to the forefront, putting our beautiful country, Guyana, on the map once again. We are thankful for all of the support we have been getting, with hopes that, through pageantry, we can stand to unite our people, not only to support our country representative, but to support the Cooperative Republic of Guyana.”
