Video: Lightbourn Preparing For Miss World

October 29, 2014

After beating out seven other contestants and being crowned as Miss Bermuda on July 6, 2014, Lillian Lightbourn is preparing to head to the United Kingdom in December in order to represent Bermuda at the international Miss World Pageant.

Ms. Lightbourn, who has modeled in locales around the world, currently lives and works in New York as a fashion model.

Previous to the Miss Bermuda pageant, when asked, should she win, what she planned to do with the exposure that being Miss Bermuda would give her, Ms. Lightbourn said, “I plan to use it to create change in any way I can, influencing the youth and everyone around me like I do now, but in a more direct way.”

“Also, I travel the world to model and I appear in magazines and commercials, but winning the title would mean I am representing Bermuda, therefore giving my country exposure as well.”

When asked who has helped her the most to achieve this success along the way, Miss Lightbourn said, “My church family and God. I am so thankful for them. They are a big part of the reason why I am so successful in New York as a model.”

Lillian Lightbourn is introduced in this official Miss World Pageant video:

“So for the pageant, they have been motivating, encouraging, helping with anything they could and, of course, praying for me along the way.”

The official Miss World website describes Ms. Lightbourn by saying, “Born and raised in Bermuda, 24-year-old Lillian currently resides in New York where she is pursuing a modelling career.

“Describing herself as “gracious, poised and unrelenting in the pursuit of my dreams”, Lillian has ambitions of building on her experiences and hopes to one day work as a creative director for a successful company.

“In her spare time, she enjoys playing basketball, singing in her church choir and volunteering as a youth worker at her local church. Lillian also has a twin sister, as well as three older sisters and three brothers. Her personal motto is “dream big and work hard.”

The Miss World Pageant will begin on December 14, 2014 at ExCeL London in London, England.
