American University of Sharjah student Sara El Khouly, 22, is all set to conquer the Miss World 2010 pageant in China this November after winning the Miss Egypt World 2010 competition last week.

The Egyptian-Croatian beauty, who was raised in Dubai, said the reason she beat other competitors was due to her personality and charisma.

"It's not a runway where you have that straight, plain look – it's the way you smile and it's your presence that makes people fall in love with you."

Sara started modelling as a child and has recently done print modelling for advertisement campaigns in the UAE.

Her duties as Miss Egypt World 2010 will involve charity work and attending various events and acting as a corporate brand ambassador.
