    Marca,I don’t know you, but being a Dominican I am extremely proud of you.

    Keep up the good works. Life is not base only on looks. There is a proverbs that
    comes from Africa. which goes like this.


    Pretty face, bad character.

    Marcia, please bear in my mind that you are an intelligent young lady.

    Well done Marcia. You did well, it’s just that others appeared to the judges to be better than you and just get ready to bring home the next regional crown to Dominica. There are two more to be won yet.

    Congratulations Marcia You are a winner. It felt good hearing Marcia Baptiste Dominica four times…….the most mentioned name for the night at the show. You did us proud. Now go bring home that crown in Antigua for Miss Jaycees.

    I listened to the show on radio from St. Lucia. A little advise ;..even if you feel a bit nervous remember that all the other girls are just as nervous. I liked that you focused on Diabetes a problem that we can identify with all over the region. You need to get familiar with as much as you can about the disease.

    Make your answer to the point, get one winning point and say it boldly and with confidence. I think the answer section is what brought you down a bit last night. But overall you were great.

    congrats again
