The Miss Essence World Elite is a beauty contest based on intellectual competition.  The competition is comprised of talent, fashion, self-expression, costume, community service, and on-stage questions.  The Miss Essence World Elite beauty contest believes in focusing on the importance of unity, acceptance, kindness and class. We hold each contestant to a high standard.

  • Mission Statement: To redefine beauty and encourage the ability to blossom into purpose; unveiling the many levels of SELF-LOVE, SELF-CARE, SELF-UNDERSTANDING, and SELF-DETERMINATION by nurturing the seed within each contestant. CORE VALUES: We strive to challenge each queen to walk in these principles: Self-Love, Self-Care, Self-Understanding, & Self-Determination.

  • Company History: MEWE was founded to emphasize the value in young women making self-care a priority.  The primary founder, AnJoynae Jimpson, felt the need to create something to save women and provide a platform for other young ladies to be heard and the motivation to face adversity.  The co-founder, Regina Warren, encouraged the implementation of beauty and brains, focusing on education and the future succession of each contestant.  MEWE was published on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
