– as Police ‘A’ Division hosts successful pageant
The Guyana Police Force’s ‘A’ Division hosted a successful edition of the Miss Youth Ambassador Pageant 2016, last evening at the National Cultural Centre.
The event featured 15 delegates, aged between 13 and 17, vying for the crown of Miss Youth Ambassador.
When the question and answer segment with the final five delegates was completed, Kizzie McLeod emerged the Queen. Second runner-up was Marissa Muesa from Albouystown, third place went to Shania Magloire from Agricola, while fourth and fifth places went to Doniellie Handy and Iesha Goodridge from Mocha and Timehri North respectively.
In an interview with the winner, McLeod said that she did not expect to win but was happy nonetheless. She attributed her success to her sponsors and relatives.
Speaking with this publication Commander of ‘A’ Division, Clifton Hicken said that he was pleased with the pageant. He said that the level of competitiveness has advanced from previous years. He explained that the delegates had a short time to prepare but their commitment allowed the event to be a success.
“We need to grow this pageant and have it move from strength to strength. What we are contemplating is having a Divisional Youth Ambassador Pageant, where all the divisions can compete.”
In attendance were First Lady Sandra Granger, Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan and his wife Sita Ramjattan. The Master of Ceremony for the night’s proceedings was media personnel Mondale Smith.
Contestants were required to participate in four segments, Professional wear, Talent segment, Sports segment and Evening wear. In the professional wear segment the girls chose a variety of careers they are ambitious of pursuing.
During the talent segment, each performance was entertaining. Pieces ranged from singing, drama, spoken word, lip-syncing and aerial dancing. Following this segment the delegates quickly transformed into sportswomen where they represented a sport of choice. Disciplines represented were basketball, football, hockey, boxing, cricket, lawn tennis and athletics.
The final and most anticipated segment, the Evening Wear was indeed amazing. Each dress worn was distinct in design and colour. The 15 beautiful young ladies confidently represented themselves in every aspect of the pageant before a sizeable audience, which included relatives and well-wishers.
During breaks between segments, the audience was treated to entertainment by THNL, a young lad who did a spoken word piece and a song. Additionally, local artiste Calvin Burnette performed a medley of songs simultaneously giving each lady a rose while the judges were tabulating their scores to select the final five.
