Dear Editor,

There will be a Miss Guyana World Pageant this year as Mr. Kenneth Chung has maintained that he intends this pageant to be a yearly event. Ms. Gopaul has been busy with her new job as Brand Manager for Sacha Cosmetics while still attending the University of Guyana where she is completing her Diploma in Marketing.

The Miss Universe Pageant and the Miss World Pageant are two separate entities (Miss Universe is owned by the Trump Organisation and Miss World by the Morley family). Mr. Kenneth Chung is the current franchise holder for the Miss World Pageant and later this year Guyana will have a representative at the Miss World Pageant which should be held sometime in November. It is entirely in the discretion of the current franchise holders of the Miss Universe franchise to determine who should crown the next Miss Guyana/Universe. Guyana's last/first representative at the Miss Universe Pageant in 1999 was Morvinia Sobers and she could crown the winner but again it's up to the franchise owners.

Miss Gopaul will crown her successor at the Miss Guyana World Pageant later this year.

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Rohlehr-McAdam
