Reigning Miss Mayfest Queen, Patrice Dorsette, has advised the young ladies who will participate in the 2015 Mayfest Queen pageant to believe in themselves in order to be successful.
Christel Durand, 20 of Castle Bruce; Kimberly Pioche, 18 of Calibishie; Candice Simon, 18 of Marigot; Nakisha Joseph 18, of Wesley; Davia Joseph, 17 of Kalinago Territory and Aquenel Victorine, 20 of Goodwill are the six contestants who will vie for the Miss Mayfest 2015 Queen title to be held at the Marigot Fisheries Complex on Saturday 2nd, May from 8:00 pm.
“What I would like to say to the young ladies, you are entering this pageant do so with an open heart, be serious because the pageant can take you places and don’t stop there,” she said. “Whatever it is that you aspire in life, take it one day at a time and just know that if you believe in yourself, great things can happen for you.”
She continued, “At the end of the day there can only be one winner so work your hardest and do your best.”
Dorsette, who was also the second runner-up in the Miss Dominica Pageant 2015, said her Mayfest journey had taught her a lot.
“Because not only did it prepare me for the Miss Dominica Pageant, it helped me to grow as an individual myself,” she stated.
She encouraged the public to turn out in large numbers on the night of the pageant to support the young ladies.
“It is something I believe everyone will benefit from,” she stated.
