Dominica – Miss Wob Dwiyet 2010

After 21 years “I’ve brought it back!” – Miss Wob Dwiyet 2010...


Commonly known as the “cultural capital” of Dominica, some would say that Grand Bay has lived up to its name.

Nadege Roach of Grand Bay, an 18-year-old chemistry, biology and physics major at the Dominica State College, told reporters following her victory in Thursday’s Miss Wob Dwiyet pageant that she had confidence coming into the competition because she began preparations in 2006.

“I always think it’s all about mind over matter so I came into the competition, [even] before I registered, saying that [that title is mine and I’m taking everything],” Roach stated.

“… In 2006, I went up for the Miss Convent Wob Dwiyet, won there, and it was my backbone to come up for the show. I wanted to go up last year, but my school work was a little bit overbearing so I decided this year I’m on break, I’m taking it all,” Roach said frantically.

The youngest in the competition this year, Roach proudly said: “It’s been 21 years since we brought that title back to the south. I’ve brought it back!” cont./
