Sharing her thoughts, Marketing & Sponsorship Officer of Events Saint Lucia, Leila Williams, commented, “Every year, we have the pleasure of working with an exceptional group of young ladies who all strive to do one thing – give of their best. It’s always amazing to witness their transformation from the audition to the final competition – they become more confident, are able to handle themselves in unfamiliar settings, understand and master time management and sharpen their social skills. While the ultimate goal of the competition is to reward a final winner with the crown, the young ladies walk away with life skills that they can use during any phase of their lives and this is the real prize.”
