While everyone is busy making and laughing at meme’s of Steve Harvey’s gaffe at the Miss Universe event, I became intrigued by Miss World pageant contestant Miss Jamaica, Sanneta Myrie.

Sanneta Myrie is stunning.

While she didn’t win (that honor was given to Miss South Africa), I was struck that this young doctor (yes, doctor!) is a dancer who is spiritually and culturally rooted. And oh, the locs! It’s the first time that the natural style has been presented on a stage of this magnitude. Hopefully we’ll see more sisters representing their natural hair in pageants to come. Black hair is a thing of beauty.

Peep this video. Sanneta’s radiance shines through and through.
