Each year close attention is paid to the St. Kitts & Nevis National Carnival Queen pageant and the Miss Culturama pageant with the hope of finding a suitable young lady to represent the Federation at the Miss World Pageant.
A Spokesperson said, “This person has to be smart, intelligent, be able to engage in stimulating conversations on any topic and have a knowledgeable historical background about St. Kitts & Nevis and the Caribbean at large. She must also be easy to get along with, be approachable, have a pleasant personality and be ready to take and follow instructions and accept constructive criticism.“
the official continued, “Based on our observations during the recently held St. Kitts & Nevis National Carnival Queen Pageant, Miss Markysa O’Loughlin best fits the profile of the delegate who can enter the Miss World Pageant and make us all proud as Kittitians and Nevisians.”
Miss O’Loughlin will be travelling to China during the summer of 2012 to represent the Federation at the Miss World Pageant. While in China, Miss O’loughlin will be promoting St. Kitts & Nevis as a tourism destination.
