With a final score of 4.136, our Missosology Timeless Beauty 2019 3rd runner-up is Suman Rao of India.
From the moment she appeared in the Rajasthan auditions of Femina Miss India 2019, we knew this lady was in it to win it. Her beauty, aura and charm were undeniable. Her towering beauty and engaging communication skills all played to her advantage. With India having the most number of Miss World wins at six crowns (tied with Venezuela), she was definitely a major force come the Big5 pageant.

Throughout the Miss World 2019 competition, Suman displayed elegance and dominance. In a year where the competition did not seem to have one major standout, we thought Suman could give India its 7th Miss World title. In fact, she was outstanding during the final interview.
“I come from a community where the rules of women are restricted. In fact my mother has faced a lot. She has faced all the odds of our community. Still she raised me, she allowed me to follow my own dreams, to follow my path, to just be what I want to be and that’s what make me able to be an independent woman at this age where other women in my community are still struggling to have equal rights.”
She might not have won the Miss World crown, but Suman has surely inspired many other women out there to speak out and fight for their rights. Missosology.Org
