Miss Universe Press Conference

(PRESS RELEASE) – The rich cultural diversity coupled with the colorful history and the resourcefulness of the people of the sun drenched Caribbean island of Saint Lucia will be showcased internationally when Saint Lucia joins over 100 countries fielding representatives to the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant.

Saint Lucia’s representative to the 66th anniversary pageant set for November 26th in Las Vegas, USA is beauty and youth advocate Louise Victor.

A past president of the National Youth Council and a national Carnival Queen, Victor is an acclaimed social activist and a 2017 Chevening scholar perusing studies in International Public Relations and Global Communications Management at Cardiff University in Wales.

Louise Victor.

Miss Universe is the most prestigious spectacle in the world of pageantry. However the event has transcended being just another beauty pageant to become one of the biggest platforms for social and economic empowerment for women. Victor won the title of Miss Universe Saint Lucia on July 31st, 2017.

“A confident woman has the power to make real change, starting in her local community with the potential to reach a global audience. It’s against this backdrop I encourage every woman to get out of her comfort zone, be herself, and continue to define what it means to be Confidently Beautiful says Victor.

Local National Director Joycie Mederick says, “Annually nearly ten thousand young women participate in Miss Universe pageant events. While we are a competition, the women who participate also learn to help one another and create a network of friends and colleagues on which to draw support.”

The competition runs for 3 weeks with contestants being challenged in various categories. They include interviews where delegates have an opportunity to promote their country or Island and raise awareness to their chosen causes, platforms and charities. It extends to costume which is considered the parade of Nations. During the 3-week long event, delegates will also compete in photo shoots for various global sponsors. The competition finals will be aired on FOX.

Saint Lucians both home and abroad are being encouraged to support the cause and vote by downloading the Miss Universe app via Google play store for Android users and Apple store for iPhone users. Official dates for commencement of voting will be announced subsequently.

This year marks the 40th anniversary since the first representative Iva Lua Mends represented Saint Lucia in Santo Domingo in 1977. Saint Lucia has been represented at Miss Universe 6 times.

The Miss Universe title comes with a yearlong contract, global travel representing the Miss Universe Organization as well as promoting the winner’s country. Included in the prize purse is a penthouse in New York Towers and many endorsements from international companies and brands.

  1. One thing about lucian they lto deride people they always want you to stay down we all have to help each other wish her the best

  2. Lets support our own i dont hear any of the other countries discriminating in such ways againt their own contestants,maybe they do but i have not heard 1 word instead of finding faults or saying save monies for cancer peep this am 47 tyears old the secret societies will never care less about curing cancer,not when they goal is to depopulate the masses or the world.Louise you only become miss universe 1 time,sorry to say 1 life to live.These elites create disease they been doing it for centuries and generations.So go big louise,St.lucia talking is the votes tjat count,whiles you'll giving flack to louise victor youll ahould be viting,she can only win if youll vite,St.lucians amaze me with their negativity and bad mind,Vote idiots,i alresdy did my part i vote for my island girl,support you'll people stop looking for faults typical St.lucians, Dear God.

  3. If you do some research on the miss universe pagent you will find that it is certainly now what its cracked up to be. Infact, its something you would not want ro associate you country and flag with. That said. This young lady will not come close to winning. Use the money to assist cancer patients or children who are terminally ill.

  4. A waste of time and resources. A 'body' alone does not win you that crown. But the experience will look great on your resume.

    758 all the way. But be real folks!

  5. Joy C Med... Your face tho.Make up can't hide this sad,aging face of yours because I appreciate that you might be a shop around for this young lady but where is the "Joy"...as a matter of fact....No one can prepare a young woman for pageants like Paticka Evence! I always remember how men appreciated beauty,brains and some hips! Miss Piton😊😊

  6. Sorry not being mean. But i dont quite think of the "model" look when i look at her. thats just an observation. she is not bad looking in anyway, but something is not quite there in terms of being a model. i think she is missing "uniqueness". its just a goodlooking girl around the place... there is something missing to take it up a notch. Her features are not striking enough. I am not sure its the type of face that draws you. even if someone does not find a face fitting their standard of beauty there has to be something arresting about the features in that kind of business. too ordinary to have been chosen i think. thats not a put down. she is a goodlooking girl, but if that is the only criteria, there is plenty that are even more so around the place. so i am not sure this was a good choice. And who are the people around her? are they the judges? well i dont think either have any clue what it takes for international success.

    • Louise is so much more beautiful in person than in pics. The photographers over there will work their magic on her pics. Her focus will drive her towards much success. You go girl!!! And do us proud. All the best to you!!

  7. Big up Louise .. you're a star regardless ! Bless up!

  8. Go girl... Can't wait to watch our Saint Lucian Queen.

  9. From now on just cultivate the poise and composure, the confidence and the faith that
    you're already a winner and nothing can knock you off the throne. Go girl, you got it.

  10. Thats my girl,such a beauty,confident,and well equipped that how i would describe victor louise.Am supporting you all the way,confident lady you got it you possess it so what now.You the happening queen, go get it.
