Sharon Obara stuns in gorgeous kitenge ahead of Miss World finale

Miss World Kenya, Sharon Obara has impressed social media users from across the world with her stunning kitenge outfits as she begins her pursuit of the coveted Miss World title.

Obara flew to San Juan, Puerto Rico, for the second time after the pageant was postponed last year. The crowning pageant will be held on Wednesday, March 16 (early hours of Thursday, March 17 in Kenya).

The competition was initially set to happen on December 16, 2021 but was brought to a halt due to positive Covid-19 cases among contestants and staff.

On Tuesday, March 15 Obara reflected on her journey in the competition and said she was proud to represent her country at the global stage.

They will all compete for the crown currently held by 2019 Miss World Tori-Ann Singh from Jamaica at the coronation ceremonies which will be staged at Puerto Rico’s Coca-Cola Music Hall.

"This is our 70th anniversary, which marks an historic milestone for us. All of us at Miss World are excited to have it in Puerto Rico,” said Julia Morley, chairperson and CEO of the Miss World Organization.

Obara has used her experience as a psychology graduate to start her Beauty with a Purpose project “Destigmatizing Mental Healthcare”. For over two years, Sharon has been working with children with neurological and cognitive disorders.
