Miss World contest prioritises the beauty of a woman’s inner self over how she looks, said Jannatul Ferdous Oishi, who represented Bangladesh in the competition’s 68th edition.
She had made it to top 30 in the contest held in China’s Sanya. Oishi returned home and took part in a media conference organised by Antar Showbiz at the FDC on Saturday.
“In the Miss World competition, beautiful does not refer to attractive physical appearance alone,” she said.
Antar Showbiz Chairman Shapan Chowdhury said Oishi had brought glory to Bangladesh. “Supporting her will mean supporting Bangladesh,” he said.
Shapan said he believed that Bangladesh would win the Miss World competition within a year or two.
Eighteen-year-old Oishi won the 'Miss World Bangladesh-2018' title this year. She emerged top of Group-6 in the head-to-head challenge of Miss World competition.
Oishi said she could not groom herself properly before the main competition.
“I was hospitalised with dengue fever and could not prepare the way I would have wanted. After going there, I felt I should have prepared more elaborately,” Oishi said.
“In that competition, they (the judges) value the beauty of one’s heart and mind more,” the Miss World Bangladesh said.
