• Night 14 • The girls and I had our last dinner together last night. I'm walking away with new friends and tons of new memories that I will have with me forever. I'm thankful for it all. I'm also thankful for the support that I've gotten from my chaperone Pennie, always encouraging, kind and consistently being there even more than she needed to be. Pennie! My sweet Pennie! To my fellow queens and Pennie! I will miss you and I hope this isn't goodbye but later. Love you girls! XoXo 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲 Outfit: @houseofjade_ Shoes: @uzuriinternational #TeamJamaica #YourJamaicanQueen
Our very own Miss Universe Ghana, Ruth Quarshie made it into the top-16 and that’s where her journey ended.
We are still proud of her.
