What’s up, AA Royals!?
I’ve been so busy lately but here’s a little recap of my experience in the Miss Universe Jamaica Northeast regional pageant’s Media Launch and Sashing and the Grand Coronation 2016! I was placed “3rd Runner Up” and was awarded “Best In Swimwear” and “Miss Runway Star”.
SASHING & MEDIA LAUNCH!
The invitation only Sashing & Media Launch cocktail event was hosted at the Noir Club at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande. Some contestants were pre-sashed while some sponsors from a glass jar at the event, including me. I chose RMP Studios as my sponsor! RMP Studios is a a full featured video and photography studio, located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and RMP was also our official photography team throughout the pageant. I also did commercial work with my sponsor which is yet to be released! The evening consisted of cocktails, light food, and my favorite, SOCIALIZING! I met lots of new people including the beauteous reigning Miss Universe Jamaica, Sharlene Radlein. Check out some photos from this event below:

MISS UNIVERSE JAMAICA NORTHEAST GRANDE CORONATION
The Grand Coronation was a fantastic experience! It’s always great to be back on stage! As a model and a previous dancer, I always feel like stage presence comes second nature to me. This event too was hosted at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande. Contestants arrived hours early and I got the opportunity to just relax in the spa while I waited to have my makeup done by the talented Rashida Haye of Punkie Facebeat. The Moon Palace Resort is so beautiful and luxurious. It’s definitely an island getaway I would recommend to anyone. Showtime was great! I was placed 3rd Runner Up and copped sectional prizes of “Best In Swimwear” and “Miss Runway Star”! This was my very first pageant and I think I did my best. Check out the photos below!
