After being crowned the winner of the Miss World 2011 contest in London, Miss Venezuela, Ivian Lunasol Sarcos has described her victory as a gift from God.

Sarcos, 21, took the ultimate beauty accolade at Earls Court in London on Sunday defeating Miss Philippines Gwendoline Ruias. Puerto Rico's Amanda Victoria Vilanova Perez was judged to be in third place.

“I’m very happy with this triumph. There are no words to express what I feel. I’m super grateful for life,” she said to El Impulso, a Venezuelan publication.

The Miss World 2011 had a unique story when she became orphan at the age of eight and spent five years in a nunnery. According to Agence French Presse, her dream was to become a nun but she later gave up the idea and went to study in the Central University of Venezuela.

“Unfortunately, I lost both my parents at a very young age, which led me to study for five years in a nunnery. I spent five years in there and my dream was to become a nun,” said the new Miss World.

Sarcos believes that the difficult times she went through were worthwhile because God always rewards, reported El Impulso.

“Believe me I’ve always done well. I think this attitude is related to the blows of life. At some point in life there is a reward, and often when you don’t expect it you receive it. I’ve always been a girl who has done well. I have a super clean conscience and all the bad things I went through were worthwhile because God always rewards one with other things.”

As Miss World, Sarcos said she wants to work “extremely” hard to offer the best of herself and make the  Venezuela proud.
