2010 Queen Marcia Baptiste

Queen Marcia Baptiste made history when she won the Miss Dominica pageant this year. On February 12, Marcia emerged victorious in the best talent, best in evening wear and Miss Photogenic round, on her way to lifting the crown out of seven contestants.

This was the first time a Portsmouth native had captured the crown in 26 years! Besides her historic win here, Queen Marcia has won the Miss Caribbean World in Tortola and Miss Jaycees Caribbean Queen Antigua in July. She has also placed second runner up in Miss Carnival in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and she emerged fourth out of 20 contestants in the Miss Caraibes Hibiscus which was held in St Maarten.

Besides her winning exploits on the stage, Queen Marcia is a tireless advocate of diabetes and is especially passionate about this work since she has lost family to the disease. She is perhaps the most prominent person raising awareness of this disease in the island of Dominica.

Miss Baptiste would like to say a special thank you to her head Chaperone Elma Aaron, her family and the rest of her team (Prince St. Jean, Ms. Fenella Wenham, Ms. Carlyn Rolle, Tessa Hyacinth, Marcus, Sean Douglas, Mr. Joseph, Mrs. Velma Ambo, Ms Frederica James) Urban Shape Body Action, Aries boutique, Caribbean Contractors Dominica limited, Dr. Geoffrey Lafond, DBlush, Northern Concrete and Steel, Grand Bazaar, Northern Festival Committee, LIME, Supercuts Salon (Portsmouth), The Glam, Belfast trading limited, Springfield Trading Limited, Screws, The Prime Minister of Dominica, Ms Catherine Daniel, Mr. Stephens, DFC, Alvin Alexander and many other businesses and persons who helped out in one way or another, her friends, her supporters, and her criticizers for their support in any way during her reign.

THANK YOU!

Because of her historic win, giving the people of Portsmouth something they had yearned for years and her advocacy in diabetes awareness among Dominicans, Queen Marcia is Insidepossie.com’s Personality of the Year!!!
