New Miss World once studied to be a nun
A WOMAN who spent five years training to be a nun has been crowned the winner of Miss World 2011.
Miss Venezuela, Ivian Lunasol Sarcos Colmenares, beat contestants from 122 countries to the coveted title after impressing the judges in the categories of beach beauty, top model, talent, sports, and beauty with a purpose – where the contestants must demonstrate involvement in a charity project.
Ms Sarcos Colmenares, 21, who has a degree in human resources and currently works for a broadcasting company, was the favourite going into the final which was held at London’s Earls Court this evening.
She was orphaned at a young age and once dreamt of becoming a nun. Now she said she wants to use her title to help other people.
