Young St Lucia queen ready for the world
CASTRIES – St Lucia will have possibly the youngest representative at this year’s Miss World competition which will be held on October 30.
The 17, soon to be 18-year-old St Lucia Miss World queen Aiasha Gustave left for China on Tuesday in her usual high spirits. She will compete with scores of pageant hopefuls for a spot in the Miss World finals this month.
In spite of her age, Aiasha’s sponsors have no doubt she’ll make her country proud. An excited SHE Caribbean publisher Mae Wayne said her company decided to sponsor Aiasha because she’d had a longstanding relationship with STAR Publishing.
“We decided to come on board because we felt St Lucia had a very good contestant who could make us proud,” said Wayne.
She added: “Aiasha has been a friend of SHE Magazine and the STAR ever since she modelled for us at the age of 13 in SHE.” (The STAR)
