Nine in contest for Miss Guyana African Queen title
Come July 31, 9 beauties representing 9 African villages will vie for the title of Miss Guyana African Queen. Held on the eve of Emancipation Day, this pageant is described as a journey to learn ‘things African’ and is billed for the National Cultural Centre from 8 pm.
The pageant is the brainchild of Shauna Jemmott, a former Miss Guyana African Heritage title holder, who has produced several village pageants in the past. However, she has relinquished its production to a committee headed by Alexis Conley. The 9 contestants vying for the Miss Guyana African Queen title are featured below:
Tiffany Ann Amanda Spencer: At 20, and in her 3rd year as a Sociology Student at the University of Guyana, this beauty’s ambition is to be a sociologist. She is representing Victoria, East Coast Demerara.
Coleen Waddell: This 18-year-old is heading to the University of Guyana come September to start the steps towards fulfilling her ambition to be a criminal lawyer. She is representing Friendship-Buxton, East Demerara.
Rishanna Rehanna Lambert: This 19-year-old, representing Beterverwagting, East Demerara, will be attending the Government Technical Institute come September. Her ambition is to become a civil engineer.
Lynn Ann Medford: Representing Hopetown, West Berbice, this 24-year-old University of Guyana student hopes to be a true recognised humanitarian and plans on building her own youth centre and dance academy as well as a modelling agency for primarily black women of low self-esteem.
