BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, Apr. 3. 2018 – IT was another successful Black San campaign for the contestant from Guyana, as that country again took home the Ms. Black San International crown.
Ms. Guyana, Faydeha King, strutted her way to the title on Sunday (Apr. 1) with grace and precision as she outwitted seven other delegates, including Ms. St. Kitts and Nevis for the crown.
Watched by a fair-sized crowd at the Sandy Point Hard Court, Ms. Guyana amassed a total 1135 points.
She was followed by Miss Trinidad and Tobago Afeya Jeffrey (1096 pts), Miss St. Maarten Shanice Powell (1054.5 pts), and Miss St. Kitts-Nevis Shaquoya Flanders (1044 pts).
Competing in five segments -Vintage Swimwear, Top Designer swimsuit, Identical Swimwear, Battle of the Brushes, Interview - Ms. Guyana dominated.
King took home three titles from the judged segment, coming out on top in the Top Designer Swimsuit, Identical Swimwear segment and the Battle of the Brushes.
In the Vintage Swimwear segment. Ms. St. Kitts-Nevis Shaquoya Flanders, won that award; Miss Trinidad and Tobago Afeya Jeffrey won the Interview Segment.
Cathyna told SKNVibes that she was nervous coming into the pageant as there was a high expectation for her to retain the title for her country after her compatriot took the crown last year.
“I am definitely excited, I cannot believe that I did it. I did work hard, and I am so happy that they gave the crown to us again this year.”
She intimated that they have been working hard to dominate the Caribbean stage in pageantry and as a result would have taken this for the second year.
This is the second year for the Ms. Black San International Pageant.
