Guyana returns to Miss Universe pageant after 5-year hiatus

After missing five editions, Guyana will return to the prestigious Miss Universe competition as the new license holder was announced over the weekend.

US-based talent acquisition leader and award-winning pageant director, Teri Brown-Walker, was officially revealed as the new national director for Miss Universe Guyana.

Teri held leadership positions at various companies in the past 20 years and has accomplished awards for her involvement with several pageant systems including Miss Earth USA and Miss United States.

"My heart is filled with so much gratitude. I am pleased to announce my first season as the National Director for Miss Universe Guyana. Being a part of this organization is a dream come true," she wrote on social media.

Guyana, a country on South America’s North Atlantic coast, last joined Miss Universe in 2017 with the stunning Guyanese model Rafieya Husain.

Called "the Land of many waters" because of its numerous rivers, creeks, and streams particularly the Kaieteur Falls, Guyana has yet to achieve its first placement since making a debut at Miss Universe in 1956.

Details for Miss Universe Guyana 2023 have yet to be announced. The winner is expected to join Miss Universe 2023 in San Salvador, El Salvador later this year.
