Outgoing Miss Caribbean World and former Miss Dominica Marah Walter crowning new Miss Caribbean World Marcia Baptiste of Dominica.
Miss Dominica’s Marcia Baptiste was crowned Miss Caribbean World 2010 when the show ended in the wee hours of Sunday morning at the Multi-purpose Complex in Road Town.
Baptiste, who is winning her first regional crown since being crowned Miss Carnival Queen (Miss Dominica) title earlier this year, follows in the footsteps of compatriot Marah Walter who won in 2008 – one of three regional titles Walter captured during her reign as Miss Dominica in 2008. cont./
Dominica should not be confused with the Dominican Republic. Dominica is located between French-controlled Martinique and Guadeloupe in the eastern Caribbean.
The official name of the island is 'Commonwealth of Dominica' Dominica's pre-Columbian name was Wai'tu kubuli, which means 'tall is her body'... Dominica is referred as the 'Nature Island', where two-thirds of the island are home to the tropical rain forests and thousands of plant species.
