Congratulations to Marcia Baptiste who is now not only Miss Dominica and Dominica Carnival Queen 2010 but also Miss Caribbean World 2010. She is from Portsmouth in the North of Dominica and she succeeded without a major corporate sponsor. Quite an achievement for this lovely young lady with a beautiful smile!
It’s also the second year in a row for a Dominican to hold the title since Marah Walter, from Paix Bouche, was crowned both Miss Dominica and Miss Caribbean World last year. The question is now whether she will be able to attend Miss Universe, which could be an issue because of lack of funding, which would be a real shame.
Marcia’s platform was diabetes, which is a big issue in the Caribbean and Dominica. Here she is at the 2010 Miss Dominica Carnival Queen pageant in her costume which is based on that theme. The costume was designed by notable Dominican Dr Lennox Honneychurch.
