QUESTION AND ANSWER
Why should you be Mr World?
MEXICO: “I wanna make a positive change in Mother Earth because we have to respect and take care of our planet because it is our home. I have the flag of Mexico in my back, and I would really want to have the flag of the world in my back. I would represent it very proudly and honored.”
NIGERIA: “I think Mr World is not the search for the most desirable man but the search for a man with desire to help others and to inspire people. It is also somebody who had the desire to make an impact to the world and society. Being Mr World will be another step close for me in achieving my dreams. And to be a dream come true to me.”
DENMARK: “I want to make a difference around the world for those who aren’t as lucky as us right here. I would like to take part in humanitarian missions, and difference and most important of all, my dad died when I was 2 years old from cancer. So, something I would like to do is help charity raise money. I believe the more money we gather…I think we will find a cure and more people will live and we can save more lives.”
