I think everyone did exceptionally great, congrats to the new queen and the others. However,i want to say special thanks to Miss. Hanover.

She has been one of the best queens we had over the passing years.

We all know that it isn't easy to go in front over 3000 people, plus viewers representing your parish and looking forward in representing your country.

"Disappointment", that's our biggest fare..."Confident", that's what most of us are lacking if we just believe in ourselves - everything would be just fine.

Being a queen doesn't your to look down on your own..you now have a little power to make an upliftment in your parish, or better yet,your country.

Once again thanks to everyone who participated and gave us a sparkling performance you have inspired a lot of young youths who are now a part of this competition.

Thanks
