University of the West Indies, Mona, Western Jamaica Campus, Lanae Gillette, is the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa Miss Jamaica Universe North West for 2018.

Gillette, who originally wore the sash Miss Vistaprint, wowed the crowd and judges during the event that was held at the Hilton Resort Ballroom in Rose Hall, Montego Bay, recently.

She goes on to represent the western region at the Miss Universe pageant in Kingston and will be joined by first runner-up Euricka Brown, who automatically qualified for the finals.

 

SURPRISING WIN

 

"I am elated by my victory, but was also very surprised because every one of the ladies had the ability to win the competition," Gillette declared after she was crowned.

"I am so happy right now on winning this prestigious competition, but I still can't believe it," she disclosed.

Pageant franchise holder, Michelle Parkes, also excited about the prospects, said she was happy to have been able to deliver a great event to the many passionate fans who turned out for the finals.

Parkes admitted that she could not have achieved the mammoth task of staging the event without the commitment of sponsors.

The Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa Miss Universe Jamaica North West 2018 results:

- Second runner-up: Miss Athena Freckleton
