Miss World Fiji Nanise Rainima came third, placing her in the Top 5 for talent category at the Miss World 2017 underway in Sanya, China.

This is the highest ever achievement for Fiji in the Miss World competition.

Rainima sang a song while playing a piano – an original piece she wrote that is dedicated to her late grandmother.

Her grandmother was a cancer survivor who passed away in 2013.

With only four days remaining, Rainima says the competition is not over yet.

“I’m thankful to God for this opportunity. There’s so much I am learning here in Sanya, China. So many beautiful friendships have been made and lifelong relationships with these beautiful ambassadors of their countries. I am blessed really and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey.”

Miss World Fiji Director, Andhy Blake, says Rainima’s placing in talent is a historic moment for Fiji as we have never been placed in a talent fast track before.

He adds being a finalist in two fast track events is also a milestone achievement.

Rainima has also made the Top 20 list for Beauty with a Purpose.

The Miss World crowning will be held on Saturday.
