‘I think I am really excited at the same time emotional, as I know that my reign will be coming to an end but I know it is the beginning for someone else, says Dunn

 

Outgoing Miss Pacific Islands Anne Dunn said Pacific Islands contestants exuded beauty and respect that was a traditional trait from the region.

“They exemplify beauty and respect on a level where people assume is from the western world or from a different side of pageant life,” Ms Dunn said.

“They are all individual intelligent women who bring their own Pacific culture and a little bit of their nations and it is such a privilege to watch as they hold their heads up high.”

Ms Dunn was speaking on Thursday at the Three Hungry Bears Bar and Grill in Lautoka where the nine contestants were hosted by the Lautoka City Council.

She said it had been an emotional yet exciting moment for her as she readied herself to hand over her reign after the crowning tomorrow at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

“I think I am really excited at the same time emotional, as I know that my reign.

“Having seen all the girls go through their Sarong category, its good to sit back and watch them and reminisce on last year’s pageant.

“I am very proud as Miss Pacific Islands to pass on the title because the next woman is a God-fearing woman and to just continue with that.”

“Continue to persevere and continue with what you do, you are amazing ambassadors of your nations and continue to show the culture and respect of the Pacific Islands.”

She hands over the crown tonight to the 2017 Miss Pacific Islands.
