I really love head to head because it gives you an opportunity to get to know the delegates. I was happy that I was able to talk about my experience playing sport and how it has contributed to the woman I am today. Also I was able to share Project Esperanza, my beauty with a purpose project with the world. 🌍 • • Don’t forget to vote on MOBSTAR, Facebook and missworld.com .
