Anastasia Laurynchuk from Minsk, who was second runner-up in last year’s Miss Belarus pageant, has been named Miss World Belarus 2019.
The 18-year-old student and model will represent the eastern European country at the 2019 Miss World contest in December in London.
Laurynchuk hopes to follow or even surpass Maria Vasilevich’s Top 5 placement in Miss World 2018, the highest place ever for a contestant from Belarus in the pageant’s history.
Belarus currently ranks 78th in Missosology Big 5 Ranking. Missosology.Org; Photos from Anastasia Laurynchuk page
