Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called.” ~ Buckminster Fuller


We understand that we are a part of a team and our actions have implications for others around us.
We prioritize the goals of the overall team over personal goals.

We do things to help others without expecting recognition or something in return.

We act honestly and ethically at all times, internally and externally.
We clearly understand our individual roles and responsibilities and seek to fulfil them for the greater good of the team, the national competition, our sponsors/partners and the Guyanese people.

We strive to set clear expectations and do what we say we will do even when no one is looking. If new information requires resetting expectations, we do so quickly and through clear lines of communication

Self-confidence is an attitude we harness to promote our skills and abilities in an effort to accept and trust ourselves and have a sense of control in our life.
To maintain a positive and optimistic vice of ourselves, we know and are aware of the evolution of our strengths and weakness.

We set realistic expectations and goals, communicate assertively, and embrace criticism as a tool of guidance.

“Trust is the only currency with any value.”

Trust, defined as a firm belief in the reliability, ability, or strength of a person or object, is core to any relationship. We seek to consistently build trust in every interaction by conducting ourselves in a professional and honest manner—one conversation, one action, one follow-through at a time.

We also do this by rejecting the status quo regarding pageantry, instead striving continually to grow in our ability to serve those who take the journey. On the flip side, we accept responsibility and quickly correct things when mistakes are made because trust is built in the proper handling of both our successes and our failures.

As such, trust is a critical component of everything we do. It is the foundation on which we build our relationships with partners, sponsors and those in our charge.

We are dedicated to exceeding the expectations of everyone by fostering a culture of trust.

We hold ourselves accountable to a higher standard than is required and conduct every competition at all times with the overall objective of consistently exceeding expectations.
We conduct our work within the community in a consistent and transparent manner to ensure that ‘excellence experiences’ are encountered by everyone, not just our sponsors.

We are willing to go above and beyond even if doing so may not be ‘our responsibility.

We strive to achieve the highest standards in serving our country by empowering our young women through distinctive cultural experiences, self-exploration, national pride, purpose, charity and community life.

We strive for continuous improvement consistently and thrive to produce the best experience and deliver the best services we are capable of providing.

We challenge the process, the experience, and our opinions collectively.

We foster a team spirit, never challenging the personal opinions of others, but challenging the problem or opportunity.

Respect in its purest form is the Golden Rule, to treat others how we want to be treated. It is a value integral to Miss World’s qualities and attributes as it is fundamental to people’s lives and mission success. Respect begins within oneself and stems from dignity, a basic human right. Dignity comes from a place of value, worthiness and a sense of self-respect
We hold ourselves and those we work with accountable for living and practising respect, even in challenging situations.

We treat others with respect even when their path may not perfectly align with ours. This simply means realizing we are not always right, or our objectives might be different, but still working hard to reach a level of understanding.

Respect promotes cooperation and makes it easier for us to achieve our common goals. To show respect is to be open and honest and to behave with integrity. To show respect, we need to think about how our actions will affect our environment.
