THE SETTLEMENT, Anegada, VI- A 17 year old of the Anegada community woke up this morning, December 16, 2019 with renewed motivation to carry the torch of the Sister Island, having been crowned its teen queen.

Kimberly A. Smith, a student of the Claudia Creque Educational Centre, was the heart of attention, cheers and words of encouragement when she took to the stage of the packed Emile E. Dunlop Community Centre in The Settlement on December 15, 2019.

Smith had no competition following a last minute drop out of another 17 year old. This resulted in the organisers shifting from having a pageant to a coronation ceremony.

A prepared queen

That did not deter Smith; however, from exhibiting how prepared she was in the various categories had the pageant been held.

Her performances included an introductory dance, steel pan music, displaying of her football (soccer) skills and her talent piece- which was a medley of poetry written by herself.

For swimwear, Smith rocked a three piece from the Islander Swim Collection by Andrea Wilson.

Smith’s final appearance on stage was in evening wear after which she was crowned Miss Anegada Ultimate Teen Queen 2019 by Mr Caribbean, Yohance T. Smith.

Among the prizes and awards presented were $1000 cash and the Neil Cline Miss Anegada Ultimate Teen Queen trophy.

An evening of talent

Organisers also fashioned the programme to feature the talents of other youths. Among those taking the stage were the Methodist Steel Pan Corps and the Evans family on flute and guitar.

There were also children modelling and recital of scriptures.

One of the organisers, Heather I. Smith, said the aim of the pageant is to prepare young women in the community to participate in the Miss BVI and other local pageants.

Nurse Romalia Smith honoured

Meanwhile, the pageant committee also honoured retired nurse Mrs Romalia Smith for the work she continues to do with the young people of Anegada.

According to the MCs for the night, Trefor A. Grant and Cathy O. Richards, the event was well organised and showcased the variety of talent in the community and the potential of the youths there.

      First off all, it was NOT a pageant but rather a Coronation! Miss Smith still went through the paces as a contestant to give the persons at the Coronation an opportunity to see what she had prepared for as a contestant until the other contestant pulled out. Now, Nothing Is Wrong with a Coronation! For crying out loud, Miss World BVI Rikkiya Brathwaite did not win her crown in a pageant but was crowned at a Coronation ceremony. The rest is History. Let us be mature about this and stop losing sleep and sanity over this matter and rather offer support and encouragement or say nothing at all. The world has enough negativity and can do without yours. Have a blessed evening and a joyous Christmas season.

      It was a CORONATION not a PAGEANT!

    Indeed to many it would appear silly to have a pageant with only one contestant however I was there and I have a few things to say despite the fact that I too felt prior that it could have postponed in order for more persons to join in. I am glad it went as it did. It was not a pageant anymore if you read the latest posters after one girl dropped out. It was a coronation. It was an opportunity to show that no matter what happens in life, you have to do what you set out to do; someone quits so be it. The show must go on. The winner was indeed a winner as she competed as if she was up against 10 girls. She did her part. She didn't just win by default and claimed fame and gifts. She did above and beyond and it was evident by her attitude, grace and smile that she felt good about herself. Other girls came out to cheer her on; no animosity showing but admiration and I think I saw hope. And a shift in some of their attitudes as they truly looked impressed and happy with not only Kimberly but with the other children that participated as well. They were coming out and showing their talent and it was really nice. And now, if another pageant is held next year, I bet more girls will participate. So this was not a waste; it was a taste of what we have to offer here in Anegada with the youths and their abilities and a start.

      Pure rubbish,
      Stop giving these unfortunate young folks who are without substantial guidance and sincere caring a bowl of marbles for cherries.
      No competition, no pageant no winner is all it was is and will be.
      Reality is required when your intent is to live in the real world.

      It happened is the problem.
      Why allow it to happen when it could have been stopped weeks ago.
      Only in the BVI could you put on a tight frock .wear a rhinestone looking gadget on your weave and declare queenship. This is hilarious.

      In order to coronate or whatever pistarcle they claiming, a monarch/queen need to be chosen. So how and when was a queen chosen..and who were the applicants and where and when if there were no applicants but maybe one, then there was nochoices so there was nor is or cannot be a queen unless its a comedy or worse,a ffarce. How people could be defending this ridiculousness lends credence to the sayin Tola people chupid and its noteworthy that the beneficiary of the rhinestone headpiece of all is anything but...why do we allow dimwitted foljs from elsewhere maje fools of the VI and its people.?.
