The new queen, Danecia Henry, who also will be representing the school this December in the 2014 National Talented Teen Pageant, depicted the career path of a nutritionist and outshined her other four competitors to win the crown.
Henry wowed the audience and judges and walked away with the crown and awards for four of the five judged appearances; Best Ambassadorial wear- 29 points , Best Ambassadorial speech- 97.5 points, Best Evening wear- 90 points and Best On-stage interview- 127 points. Though she did not win the talent segment of the show, when the scores were tallied she amassed a grand total of 464.5 points, beating her closest rival by almost 50 points..
To win the ambassadorial wear award, Danecia appeared on stage wearing a beautiful attire aptly named ‘The Eden Goddess’. The white chiffon dress was airbrushed to depict the ambience of a garden scenery with flower vines and hints of sunshine yellow and blue and fresh fruits and vegetables. Sticking to her chosen career, the neckline was embellished with the words Life, Health, Nutrition and Live.
While speaking to one of her chaperones, Miss French, she said that she feels their representative is capable of copping one of the top positions in the 2014 National Talented Teen pageant. She also went on to say that her team will now return to the drawing board to decide what will be the best presentations for the upcoming show as the they get their contestant ready.
First runner up went to one of the crowd’s favourite, J’nique Clarke who received 416 points and Davincia Brandy was adjudged 2nd runner up with a total of 414.5 points.
The other contestants were Doniesha Eddy and Azambia Alexander.
Eddy, although was not placed in the top three spots, was also presented with the award for having the best talent performance. In this segment she revealed ‘her story to the world’ in a dance piece dubbed ‘Read all about it.’ Doniesha felt that the youth are faced with a number of social ills, and enslaved mentally with many stories to tell, and as such she was ready for everyone to read and know of hers.
Latidra Woodley was crowned the first queen of the learning institution last year, 2013, and went on to represent the school relatively well at the National Talented Teen Pageant.
