Miss World and Miss World Africa deliver speeches.
Yesterday evening, Miss World Alexandria Mills and Miss World Africa Emma Wareus impressed the gathered students and alumni of the University of Cambridge as they delivered speeches in the famous Debating Hall of the Cambridge Union Society. Invited to speak by the world's oldest and most prestigious debating society, it gave the assembled audience a chance to hear about all aspects of what it means to be Miss World.
Alexandria's speech, entitled "More Than I Could Ever Imagine", focused on her experiences of becoming Miss World, and how it has changed her life, offering a personal and emotional insight into her time as Miss World. Emma explained the role of Beauty with a Purpose and the international charity work that is at the heart of Miss World, as well as different perspectives in Botswana, Africa, and around the world. Together they spoke for over an hour, and the enthusiastic response from the audience continued as they spent a further hour and a half meeting and speaking with those in attendance, answering further questions.
Earlier in the day, Alexandria and Emma met with students and society members for a tour of Cambridge and the University campus, and enjoyed a traditional punting boat trip along the River Cam.
