POSTED: 07/15/11 12:58 PM

GREAT BAY – Miss St. Maarten Senior Carnival Queen Trumane Trotman will face a daunting task when she represents St. Maarten in the Jaycees Caribbean Queen Show on July 29 in Antigua. One of the most prestigious pageants in the Caribbean, it will feature 17 contestants, including St. Maarten.

With three pageants on the horizon, Trotman has to delegate time and focus on preparing on Jaycees pageant and leave the other preparations to her chaperones and handlers of the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF). Following the Jaycees, she competes in Jamaica for the Miss Global International Pageant in September, followed by the Miss Humanity Pageant in October in Barbados.

But first up is the Jaycees in about two weeks. Her chaperones are two former queens, Lavinia Marsham and Dorothy Radjouki. Trotman anticipates competing against young women who take pageantry very seriously and who views the Jaycees pageant in particular as a “must win”.

The SCDF assured however that St. Maarten has a very strong, positive and uplifting candidate who will represent her country to the best of her abilities.

“We will also ensure that she is as prepared as possible for this event,” the SCDF said.

The other countries participating in the Jaycees pageant are Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, BVI, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Trinidad.

“Attending various pageants, regionally and internationally, while informing individuals of what my integrated, friendly country St. Maarten has to offer, is one of the many things I look forward to doing in my reign. I am proud to have been afforded this opportunity to represent my country and also look forward to my country supporting me,” Trotman said.
