Dig­i­cel en­dorses Kayshia Verneuil for Na­tional Car­ni­val Queen Pageant

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As the proud plat­inum spon­sor of Saint Lucia Car­ni­val, Dig­i­cel con­tin­ues to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of the art form and has yet again en­dorsed a con­tes­tant for the highly pres­ti­gious Na­tional Car­ni­val Queen Pageant. Miss Kayshia Verneuil has been sashed as Miss Dig­i­cel for Car­ni­val 2016 and will con­fi­dently rep­re­sent Dig­i­cel through­out the Car­ni­val Sea­son.

Kayshia, a twenty-one-year-old, hails from the vil­lage of La­borie, a place she calls “more than just home”. She con­sid­ers her­self an au­da­cious, industrious, en­er­getic and car­ing in­di­vid­ual with a deep pas­sion for com­mu­nity service. As the cur­rent Sec­re­tary of the Ro­taract Club of South St. Lucia, Kayshia be­lieves that ev­ery­one should al­ways as­pire to con­trib­ute to de­vel­op­ing their com­mu­nity by giv­ing of self, which fur­ther fos­ters greater per­sonal de­vel­op­ment.

As an ad­vo­cate for equal­ity for women, Kayshia en­cour­ages women to em­brace ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to em­power them­selves.

She is a former stu­dent of the Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege and the Vieux Fort Com­pre­hen­sive Se­condary School, with her el­e­men­tary and child­hood ed­u­ca­tion at the La­borie Primary School. Kayshia has a spe­cial con­nec­tion with chil­dren and as­pires to be a pae­di­a­tri­cian.

Mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive at Dig­i­cel, Miss Louise Vic­tor, as­serted the com­pany's ela­tion with Miss Verneuil as Miss Dig­i­cel: “The sup­port for yet an­other young as­pir­ing Saint Lu­cian in the jour­ney of achiev­ing their dreams is some­thing we con­tinue to pride our­selves on as a com­pany.

"Miss Kayshia Verneuil's en­dorse­ment as Miss Dig­i­cel for the Na­tional Car­ni­val Queen Pageant meets two of our primary spon­sor­ship prin­ci­ples of in­vest­ment in arts and cul­ture and also youth de­vel­op­ment. Kayshia is a dy­namic in­di­vid­ual with a very pos­i­tive out­look on life. She is pas­sion­ate about her com­mu­nity and her per­sonal and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment. She truly rep­re­sents our brand of ‘Be Ex­tra­or­di­nary'. Her de­port­ment, el­e­gance and poise are wor­thy of much recog­ni­tion and we wish her the very best come July 2nd as she vies for the crown.”

On Wed­nes­day June 15 Kayshia spent the morn­ing with her Dig­i­cel fam­ily at the head of­fice in Rod­ney Bay where she was sur­prised with flow­ers and a boun­ti­ful fruit bas­ket from Dig­i­cel's Coun­try Man­ager Mrs Siobhan James-Alexan­der with spe­cial words of en­cour­age­ment and in­spi­ra­tion.
