On the heels of her participation at the Miss Jaycee pageant, Miss Dominica 2023, Adicia Burton is set to compete in her second regional pageant, the Miss Caribbean Culture.
The Kalinago beauty will be among nine delegates from across the region to vie for the crown when the show makes its grand return tomorrow- Monday, August 07 2023 on the island of St Kitts and Nevis.
In a Facebook post, the Ministry of Tourism in Dominica urged citizens to “rally behind our queen and show her our unwavering support as she continues to dazzle the world with the essence of our culture and heritage!”
The twenty-year-old will take the stage as delegate number one in the pageant, which will begin at 8:30 p.m. at the Nevis Cultural Complex.
The show, which returns after a hiatus of three years due to COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions, will also feature Miss St. Kitts Shafeya Guishard, Miss Nevis Shamarley Newton, Miss Trinidad and Tobago Chronna Khan, Miss Guyana Shemina Peroune, Miss St. Maarten Tasyanna Clifton, Miss St. Thomas Lamonee Morris, Miss St. Croix Tatyana Britney Massiah and Miss St. Vincent and the Grenadines Jada Ross.
Burton competed in her first regional pageant, the 2023 Miss Jaycees Queen Show, last week, and won first place, with host country Antigua and Barbuda taking the title.
She faced off against eight other regional beauty queens in the prestigious pageant, which was celebrating its sixth decade under the theme “Celebrating 60 Years of Vibrancy, Culture, and Talent.”
The reigning queen who competed in position 7, utilised the pageant to promote her platform, Reparations for Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean, with a focus on the Kalinago people.
When the results were read following the nearly four-hour long-show, Ischikelle Corbin of Antigua and Barbuda swept the board, bringing home the awards in all of the judged categories of the competition.
