This year six contestants will be participating in the show under the theme “Embracing the Goddess Within.”

And in accordance to the theme, Liverpool choose the Goddess “Flora” which represents flowers and springtime.

She said although the journey has been stressful and overwhelming, she encouraged many persons to take part in pageantry because according to her, it is worth it.

    Young Dominican Women on the Island and Diaspora, continue to Sully themselves while seeking Glamor. Showing off their Assets, it seems, is all the young Black Women aspires. In doing so, all semblance of Chaste is carted through the Window, leaving them empty and swell headed.There must be another avenue for the young Woman to show her True capabilities, being a beauty queen is the highest fallacy of her compromising early Life.
