Happy Independence Day Jamaica. May our island and it’s people grow in strength, innovation, vision, productivity and love in the years to come.
Today, I am especially congratulating 25 year old Kingston & St. Andrew representative, Anjell Bryan, who was crowned Miss Jamaica Festival Queen 2014 last month at the Louise Bennett Garden Theatre.
Managing Diretor of Sounds of Joy, Joy Simmos Brown, said, “This girl is not only a beautiful spirit but she is a great performer. She is self assured, efficient at work, intelligent, and a warm personality. She deserves to represent us as Queen.” Well, Bryan certainly convinced the judges of her great abilities.
Bryan herself told the Jamaica Observer, “The contest has empowered me both as a young woman and as a Jamaican, because it taught me so much about myself and my culture.” Sounds like we have a great Festival Queen this year. We wish you all the best Anjell Bryan and hope you continue to work hard and represent us well during your reign as queen.
Bryan won ahead of Sharlene Codner (Miss St Ann), who was first runner-up, and second runner-up Honica Brown (Miss Trelawny). Trudy Hylton (Miss St James) and Petrina Williams (Miss Clarendon) completed the top five of the total 13 contestants.
