Jahne Indira Massac, 19 years of age from St. Croix, is the new Miss World US Virgin Islands. She was crowned on October 4 at a private ceremony held in Golden Rock. She will represent the US Virgin Islands at the Miss World 2015 pageant which will be held in Sanya, China this December.
Despite its small size and relative obscurity, US Virgin Islands managed to land at the Miss World semifinals in 3 instances. In 1989, Vania Thomas became one of the 10 semifinalists when the pageant was held in Hong Kong. In 2005, Kmisha Counts became one of the semifinalists after winning the talent fast track event. Her golden voice swayed the judges in her favor. Similarly, Esonica Veira’s talent can be credited for being one of the Top 15 finishers at Miss World 2011.
