Seven beautiful and intelligent young ladies will be competing for the title of Miss Emancipation when the Pageant is hosted on Saturday evening at the National Cultural Centre.
The theme for the Miss Emancipation Pageant is centred on the International Decade for People of African Descent.
The delegates have created spoken word renditions for the introduction segment, based on the United Nations theme for this Decade, “Justice, Recognition and Development”.
They are also attending African culture lectures given by Dr Norman Ng-A-Qui of Cuffy 250 Committee and franchise owner Dr Melissa Varswyk.
For this year’s project, the delegates will be coding robots to escort them onstage during the project presentation segment.
They are being trained by US-based Robotic Engineer Terrence Southern. He is the Global Lead Robotics and Automation Engineer at GE Global Research.
As an influencer of innovation and a recognised leader in robotics and artificial intelligence, Southern leads the Robotics & Automation project strategies across the GE business portfolio which include research, system and application development, testing and manufacturing system project management and installation.
Tickets for the show on Saturday evening cost $2000 and $1000. Tickets will be available from the National Cultural Centre or the members of the committee comprising Dr Varswyk; Miracle Hilliman (Miss Emancipation 2013); Marva Langevine (Miss Emancipation runner-up 2014); Latisha Chan (Miss Emancipation delegate 2014); Delisha Wright (Miss Emancipation 2016) and Amaniah Cort (Miss Emancipation 2017).
