Miss Dominica, Jacintha Fagan, walked away with the first runner up position at the Jaycees Caribbean Queen Pageant held in Antigua last night.
She grabbed that position from among a field of 15 contestants from across the Caribbean.
Miss St. Kitts-Nevis, Iantavian Queeley, walked away with the crown, while Miss Anguilla and Miss St. Lucia took the second and third runner up positions respectively.
It is a huge win for Fagan who faced a barrage of criticism following her failure to walk away with a winning position at the recently held Miss Caribbean Culture Queen competition in St. Kitts-Nevis. It shows she has the potential to defy the odds and come out on top.
