Miss Global Jamaica 2017 Nastashia Mitchell is among 25 international contestants vying to be crowned Miss Global International 2017 at Riu Montego Bay Hotel on Saturday, September 9.

At that time Mitchell, who waltzed away with the Miss Global Jamaica crown in June, will be hoping for a repeat of fortunes.

Her international rivals will be flying in from countries such as Cuba, Sierra Leone, India, The Bahamas, Ethiopia, Canada, USA, Panama, Scotland, United Kingdom, Haita, Dominica Republic, and Guadeloupe.

They are expected to start arriving in the island in time for a cocktail party reception on Wednesday, September 6 to be hosted at Riu, Montego Bay, where a series of other events, including a fashion show, are scheduled to be held leading up to the grand coronation.

On the eve of the grand finale, after stopping at resort attractions along the way, the girls will head to Kingston where they will pay a courtesy call on Governor General Sir Patrick Allen at King's House.

Meanwhile, event director, Neelam Ramchandani is elated that the international pageant, which was conceptualised by her father, Lachu Ramchandani, 14 years ago, was returning to the island after a two-year change when it was staged in Trinidad and Tobago and Dominican Republic, respectively.

“Last year was in Santo Domingo so this will be a good comeback to Jamaica, with the support of the tourist board,” she noted.

“We are just wrapping up everything now. We are excited, the girls' tickets have been booked already, and they are excited to come here as well. Most of them will be flying in on September 6. We are selling rooms at the resort. Interested persons could follow our Instagram page at Miss Global Jamaica where they can get more information on the rates.”
