“If I were to be a World Miss Tourism Ambassador 2017, I will promote culture and tourism through compassion and helping other people. And I believe that aside from beautiful scenery, it is the people that defines the real tourism,” Karen said.
The thought was there, but she seemed nervous. Those that have reacted to the video shared on the internet said the way she answered reminded them of recitations in school when they didn’t know the answer.
Miss Russia Aibedullina Talliya became World Miss Tourism Ambassador 2017, beating 41 other delegates from around the world.
Other winners were Talitha Bothma from South Africa (Miss Fashion Tourism Ambassador 2017); Johanna Arcs from Germany (Miss Ocean Tourism Ambassador 2017); Francisca Paz Lavadero Ceballos from Chile (Miss Culture Tourism Ambassador 2017); and Lien Phuong from Vietnam (Miss Eco Tourism Ambassador 2017).
Along with Karen, also part of the top 11 were candidates from Thailand; Asia, USA; Lithuania; Moscow, Russia; and India.
Some countries sent two representatives to the pageant, including the Philippines, Russia, South Africa, India and China.
