Pageant veteran Paul Charles will close that chapter of his life when he represents Guyana at the international leg of the Mr Model of World Tourism in May; this will be his last pageant.
The experience will surely be bitter. Paul, who is also a dancer, at 35 years old in April, said it was time to step away from pageantry, but promised to use his experience to continue mentoring and coaching other representatives for Guyana.
“My journey in pageant competition will end this year. This will be my farewell pageant. It’s amazing, ”said Paul. “I’m happy to have had this opportunity to represent Guyana because this is what I do and this is what I love but on the other hand, I’m still nervous because it’s been so long since I competed in a last pageant. I’m very excited and ready to the best of my ability to make it happen. This is not just for me but to show that men have what it takes to be on the international stage and make pageants as well. “
