Top 30

On finals night, Mrs BVI had made the semi-finals by securing a place in the top 30.

During her two weeks in China, according to the BVI Lifestyle Challenge which was responsible for sending Mrs Findlay to the pageant, Mrs BVI was selected to participate in most of the initiatives and networking events. She was selected among 7 to perform at the Shen Senior Center, at a special event held in their honour of the seniors.

“BVI was well featured and favoured among the delegates for her enthusiasm, personality and vigour. She was commended several times for how she was marketing her country through dress, her talent and dialogue with everyone and on stage. Through her very interesting story, which she carried through the event, she will always be noted as the Mrs BVI having six children with such a well maintained figure,” a press release from the BVI Lifestyle Challenge stated.

When asked how she felt when the [British] Virgin Islands was called as a semi-finalist, Mrs Findlay said: “I could not believe out of sixty. I was really proud.”

Mrs BVI expressed her thanks to the Mrs Globe Organisation and the VI for their support in making her presence at the event a reality.

First VI delegate to Mrs Globe in 14 years

BVI Lifestyle Challenge Director, Alicia Green told Virgin Islands News Online that it is the first time in 14 years that the VI was represented at the Mrs Globe Pageant.

“I am very proud of our delegate, Shevone, as she represented well and did an excellent job putting BVI back in play after 14 plus years of not participating. The caliber of ladies at this international event displays volume to women empowerment and how we can help to lend a hand worldwide through our personal and cultural involvement.”

Meanwhile, the hunt will soon be on for the next Mrs BVI for the 2016 edition of the pageant, also to be held in Shenzhen, China.

“We are actually going to be selecting new candidates for next year’s event. We are doing it as a fundraising gala and select the best candidate to move forward.”
