Kushboo Ramnawaj was chosen to represent Mauritius at Miss Universe 2016. She was chosen by the new franchise holder of Miss Mauritius pageant, Estrella Mauritius. Kushboo is 26 years old and she hails from Rivière du Poste. She was supposed to represent the country last year itself, as she was the winner of Miss Mauritius 2014, but was replaced due to disagreement with the former franchisee holder.
“The decision to send Kushboo to Miss Universe 2016 has been unanimous at Estrella Mauritius and we believe that she will be a wonderful representative promoting Estrella Mauritius, Mauritius and its people on such a big scale,” Estrella Mauritius said in a statement. “For us, Kushboo represents the ethos of Miss Universe Organization: she is a young empowered woman and is confidently beautiful.”
“After meeting and chatting with Kushboo, we saw the potential in her to promote our brand internationally and her dream to compete at Miss Universe. We had sent a proposal to the Miss Universe Organization and we are thrilled by their decision to allow Kushboo to participate,” Estrella Mauritius said.
