Another reason to be proud of Marah and off course to boast my country, Dominica - Nature Island of the Caribbean, no other island to compare for her beauty is rich and rare (Marah's too), here is the story as reported from www.bviplatinum.com
Miss Dominica Marah Walter Crowned Miss Caribbean World 2008. The Miss Caribbean World Pageant 2008 judges had a hard task ahead of them last Saturday evening as 18 lovely Caribbean beauties graced the stage at the Multipurpose Sports Complex, vying for the prestigious title.
At the end of a long and entertaining evening, it was the delegate from the Nature Isle Dominica Miss Marah Walter who walked with the crown as the new Miss Caribbean World 2008.
Miss Walter was crowned by the 2007 Miss Caribbean World, Miss BVI Leilani Stevens who made her final walk as Miss Caribbean World earlier in the evening.
The 21 year old Miss Marah Walter was judged Best Swimwear, Best Talent, Best Evening Wear, Best Costume and was also awarded Miss Popularity.
First runner up went to Miss Grenada Ahyana Bowen who was also judged Miss Intellect. Second runner up went to Miss Barbados Marquel Clarke, third runner up Miss BVI Maquita Alexis Richards and fourth runner up Miss Antigua and Barbuda Delvanice Michelle Williams. Miss Jamaica Janella Lewis was awarded Miss Photogenic and Miss Congeniality.
BVI Platinum News spoke with the newly crowned Miss Caribbean World, Miss Dominica Marah Walter on Saturday evening. The excited Miss Dominica said her goal was to be consistent throughout the pageant and she was. She said she enjoyed the entire show, particularly the evening wear segment, pointing out that she modeled her evening gown a lot because “no matter how the dress looks, it is you who must make the dress come alive”. Miss Walter told BVI Platinum News that although she was the last delegate to arrive in the Territory and it was a bit tiring, she enjoyed the Island. The 21 years old who is employed as a Clerical Assistant at the Dominica Social Security said her main focus is to work with the youth and less fortunate and assist with the social ills of her community.
