ZIZ News…June 24, 2010 – The Miss World St. Kitts Nevis Executive Committee is proud to announce that Miss Fatisha Anita Imo will represent the Federation at the 60th Miss World festival celebrations that will be held in Vietnam between Sunday 3rd October and Saturday 6th November 2010.
The 120 nations represented in the Miss World Festival 2010 will also tour Vietnam, following in the fundraising foot-steps of Julia Morley, Mr. Kieu Hoang and our Miss World winners, to raise money to help sick and disadvantaged children. They will play a fundamental role in bringing ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ to the fore.
During the festival, the Miss World 2010 contestants will travel around the country, sampling the many rich delights Vietnam has to offer, participating in a number of special events, as well as joining in with the celebrations for the 1000 year anniversary of the city of Hanoi.
The 22 year old beauty is no stranger to the stage having placed 1st runner up in the 2007-2008 National Carnival Queen Pageant (St.Kitts/Nevis), 3rd runner up in the 2008 Miss Caribbean Queen Culture Pageant, and received Best Performing Talent in the 2010 Miss Caribbean World Pageant. Fatisha is extremely happy to be walking in the footsteps of
Haley Cassius, her Godmother and chaperone who represented the Federation in the Miss World Pageant in 1988. The former 2007-08 National Carnival Queen, Samantha Boone, and the reigning Miss UDC Talented Teen 2009-10, Zinga Imo are also evidence of her determination and devotion for pageantry.
Currently Miss Imo attends the Midwestern State University, where she is doing a double major in Accounting and Spanish and dreams of one day of providing sound financial assistance to businesses across the Caribbean region.
