ROSEAU, Dominica, Tuesday March 4, 2014, CMC – A 20-year-old schoolteacher, Francine Tiffany Baron, was crowned “Miss Dominica” as Carnival activities continued at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium on Friday night.
Ms Baron won the awards for best swimwear, best performing talent, best response to question and best in costume.
She outshone Donella Riviere of Roseau who placed first runner up, while Octavia Prosper of La Plaine placed third.
Seven young ladies participated in the competition with Ms Baron saying the journey to the throne was “extremely difficult” and that her months of hard work had paid off.
“It feels so exciting that the months turned into days and the days into hours and I am now finally sitting here and my hard work has paid off. I feel really relieved and I can sleep well tonight,” she told reporters, adding that her victory underscores the fact that people from Grand Bay, south of here, can reach their highest achievement.
