Dr Sanneta Myrie, Miss Jamaica World 2015 and Miss World third runner-up, left the island this week en route to East Africa, to participate in a series of youth development workshops and mentorship programmes organised by the Shashamane Sunrise International Foundation (SSIF).

Following her participation in a local event staged by the Shashamane group, Dr Myrie was invited to tour Africa with the group of international volunteers.

According to Dr Myrie, "I am proud to be an ambassador of this wonderful organisation which promotes education in developing countries across the world. This is what 'Beauty with a Purpose' is all about."

The two-week African tour includes visits to Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda.
