MISS India Fiji Sheryl Kumar left the country last Friday to take part in the global Miss World India Pageant.

Ms Kumar, 20, also known as ZAR Logistics Miss India Fiji, is our representative to the international event, which takes place in Kuala Lumpur this week.

Miss India Fiji's director Aliyah Jan said Ms Kumar would do the country proud.

"Sheryl has prepared well and is determined to make Fiji proud on an international platform showcasing our Pacific and Indian art and culture through her dance," Ms Jan said in a statement last week.

"This will be a very enriching and life changing experience for Sheryl, a very gratifying one for Fijians here and around the world and a truly rewarding one for us as directors."

She will compete against 30 other contestants.

The pageant officially opened last Saturday but the first round will commence on today with the talent night.
