In Her Own Words...
"I’m Donna and I come from the beautiful island of Malta. This was always my dream to be an ambassador for my country and carry the Maltese flag.
I come from a very warm country with a warm heart population.
I am a very active person and I always put fitness and travelling a priority in my life. I work in the beauty industry but I always make sure that every week I put a few hours towards charity work which is very close to my heart. I am looking forward for my participation in the miss world contest, I am sure that great and positive things will be come out of it , and will broaden my horizon.
Something which makes it more exciting is that on the final night I will be celebrating my 21st birthday together with the other contestants. Obviously you all know what might be the biggest gift to receive :)"
