VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- Alondra C. Ephraim, 20, is the 2017 Miss Virgin Gorda Easter Festival Queen.

The Client Service Representative at the BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) was crowned at Norma’s Lounge at Fischer’s Cove in Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda on Wednesday April 12, 2017.

There was no pageant; however, due to Ephraim’s high level of intelligence, grace, class and her ability to hold such a prestigious title and ambassadorial role, along with her deep interest, she was selected to wear the crown.

The new Miss Virgin Gorda came out in Swimwear, Costume and Evening Wear and delivered brief remarks, stating her gratitude for being chosen.

Thankful

“I am thankful for this opportunity since there wasn’t a pageant. I am very grateful and I would love to give God the thanks and my parents and grandparents and everyone who wished me well. Thank you,” Ephraim stated moments after being crowned.

“It is not the stars to hold our destiny, it is in us. It is a great pleasure and privilege and honour that I can accept such a prestigious title as Miss Virgin Gorda Easter Festival 2017 and on such a milestone, our festival’s 50th anniversary,” she continued. “As my journey begins, I look forward to being a catalyst for change in our small community.”

Role model

Ephraim informed that her intention is to be a role model and a beacon that the youth of the British Virgin Islands can look up to.

She is the granddaughter of Mr Rupert Ephraim, one of this year’s festival honourees and used the opportunity to thank the honourees for being stalwarts.

Ephraim also expressed gratitude to the Virgin Gorda Community and the Virgin Gorda Easter Festival’s Committee.

“I look forward to serving you well and being a stellar ambassador for your island,” she noted.

Minister for Education and Culture Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL) and the Chairman of the VI Festivals and Fairs Committee Mr Treffor A. Grant delivered remarks and congratulated the new queen.

They both pledged their full support towards making Ephraim’s reign a success.

    Sometimes there are shows and no shows and someone could be used as a representative instead depending on various factors. We may even argue this but it happens. I however wish her all the best in this her year of reign. Make the entire BVI proud.
