Arti Cameron goes for Miss World crown today
Miss Guyana Arti Cameron is looking to reverse this country’s failing fortunes at the Miss World Pageant, when the final of the pageant is held today in Ordos, China.
She has already won the People’s Choice Award by pageant website Missology, while soaking up attention in the international press.
Cameron, 23, holds a pre- med degree in biology with a minor in chemistry and plans to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a medical doctor. She has lived in three countries so far – Guyana, Jamaica and the United States – and considers herself a world citizen. She volunteers for and supports a number of causes including the Ruimveldt Children’s Aid Centre (in Guyana) and Now AfriCAN (an organization dedicated to helping children in post-war situations in Africa). She has also volunteered at the Hospital for Special Surgery, America’s leading orthopedic hospital, according to the US News and World Report.
Arti was elected to the Student Advisory Council La Guardia Community College (LAGCC). This was during her tenure as president of the Psychology Club of that college. She has been on the dean’s list multiple times at LAGCC and Hunter College— two campuses of the City University of New York.
In Guyana, she was crowned Miss St. Joseph High School (Junior Queen) and deepened her passion for fashion and modeling, eight years before becoming Miss Guyana World 2011, and Guyana’s ambassador to Miss World 2012.
The pageant will be broadcast live from Ordos, starting at 8 am Guyana time on MTV 14/65.
