The winner of the 2017 Miss Jaycees International Queen Show, Ayanna Dorsette, said she is committed to improving awareness on environmental issues during her reign.
She told OBSERVER media that it is especially important to push the issue of environmental sustainability since there are many issues that need to be addressed.
‘Nature’s Beauties, a celebration of the environment’ was the theme of this year’s show, held on Sunday evening at Carnival City, which attracted fifteen contestants from across the region, including the host nation, Antigua and Barbuda.
It was the first time since 2009 that Antigua & Barbuda has copped the crown and Dorsette is hoping that her win will “inspire” other Antiguans and Barbudans to “just try something new” and the rewards will come in the end.
“In 2015, we should have achieved environmental sustainability and it’s 2017 and we are way behind time,” she opined. “So, we need to put actions in place.”
Dorsette added that while the government has “helped us” with the introduction of some forms of renewable energy there is “so much” each resident can do to play a part to sustain the environment.
On her way to capturing the title, the Antiguan and Barbudan beauty copped two segments of the competition – performing talent and best dressed in evening wear.
Miss St Lucia, Tyler Theophane, who placed first runner-up, was awarded the prize for the most photogenic contestant.
The second runner up position went to Miss St Vincent & the Grenadines, Jimelle Thomas, who won the prize for best modelling skills in evening wear.
The award for the best interview went to Miss Anguilla, Carencia Rouse, while Miss Trinidad and Tobago, Jenell Thongs, received the most congenial awarded.
Miss Trinidad and Tobago also won the prize for staying true to the night’s theme in which all the delegates were challenged to integrate the theme into various aspects of their presentations.
Miss St Kitts, Katherina Davis, won the swimwear segment.
The night of glitz and glamour attracted the full engagement of the audience that packed the stands at Carnival City, cheering their favourite delegates. The event ended with the smiling contestants – some were teary eyed – hugging each other.
