Miss SVG Universe returns home

This country’s delegate to Miss Universe 2004, Laferne Fraser, returned to the State last Friday after spending some three weeks in Quito, Ecuador in her bid to capture the prestigious title.
While in Ecuador, Miss Fraser joined eighty other beauties from countries around the world to participate in preliminary activities which included parades, presidential visits, remote filming fashion shows and a national gift auction.{{more}}
Preparation for the televised show, which was viewed by millions around the world on June 01, included a hectic rehearsal schedule that ran from May 14 to June 01. The 2002 Miss SVG and Miss Carival faced the judges in the evening gown and competition swim wear on May 27. She participated in a personality interview on May 30.
The Vincentian lass failed to make it past the preliminary round of competitions but was proud to have represented her country at this prestigious pageant. St. Vincent and the Grenadines would have benefited immensely from the exposure and promotion which the country gained as a tourist destination.
Miss Fraser, accompanied by her mother, was met at the E.T Joshua airport by Miss SVG 2004, Javorne Williams, officials of the CDC and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, members of the media, family, friends and well-wishers. The lovely Vincentian lass is taking a much deserved rest before retuning to Miami where she is pursuing studies in psychology.
