Optimism is bursting through at the seams for Oshnen Maturine, as she prepares to grace the stage in search of the Union Island Miss Easterval beauty pageant title on Saturday.
The 18 year old says that every aspect of her preparation is ready and that she is confident of doing great things at the pageant.
Oshnen added that although this would be her first competition outside her country, she has been able to prepare herself for what she expects would be a more challenging contest than the Carnival beauty pageant she won in February.
“I know it’s a competition with regional contestants and therefore I would be stepping up my game, as most of them would be coming with a wealth of experience from shows of this nature”, said the carnival queen.
The contestants would appear before the judges in; Introduction, Ambassadorial wear, Talent, Evening gown and Intelligence categories.
