Queen contestant Savahnn James to push for sustainable living through renewable energy

Carnival Queen contestant Savahnn James of Roseau says she will use her platform “Sustainable Living Through Renewable Energy” to push for Dominica to become self-sufficient where energy is concerned.

James was officially launched over the weekend.

She said she selected her platform because of her passion for taking care of the environment.

“I believe that we are stewards of the Earth and it is our responsibility to preserve it. We see the effects of climate change here in Dominica and we have the resources to combat these changes and safeguard ourselves,” she explained.

James said using renewable energy is one way Dominica can become self-sufficient and contribute to the preservation of the environment.

The beauty queen also intends to further her studies by perusing a degree in Environmental Engineering.

“This isn’t just a platform for me but a lifestyle. I plan to further my studies in environmental engineering and I will continue to push my platform after the show,” she said.

James also hopes to start a conversation on the implementation of renewable energy in Dominica.

Meantime Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau South constituency Chekira Lockhart-Hypolite called on businesses to support the queen show and to provide sponsorship to contestants.

Hypolite was filling in for Melissa Poppone Skerrit, the MP for Roseau Central.

“I am asking business places to support the national queen show, there are young ladies who do not have any sponsorship,” she said.

She added that carnival is a tourism product and it must be looked at it in a wholistic manner.

“The greatest [beneficiary] in my mind is the business community so I am asking on behalf of DDA and DFC if there are any private businesses, there are queen contestants who are looking for support…” she said.

Hypolite further explained that a show of this magnitude needs financial backing and support.

She also called on businesses in the Roseau South constituency to come on board and support the queen show.

    Beautiful lady.
    I think the time has come again for our women to be allowed to wear natural hair in these competitions. The plastic and Asian hair fade in comparison.

    She is jumping on the ‘approved’ band wagon of what is being preached today by the UN. ‘Renewable energy and sustainability,’ terms originating from the UN propaganda. Most people do not know what those terms really mean in terms of the documents – Report from Iron Mountain – section 6, ‘Substitutes for the Function of War.’ People need to stop parroting it. It means the end of human beings on planet earth as we know it and most people think that it is something that is an effort to save the earth. A lot of things are the opposite of what you are taught to think they are. That is why the media is controlled these days. Very little is the truth or of real value unless you can read between the lines and know from whence it comes. She needs to understand what she is really standing for and find out what the whole thing is really about, and it is much deeper than a beauty and talent contest or putting everyone on solar energy.
