KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent — When Avia Charles takes her final walk Saturday night as Miss SVG 2011, she will bring to a close a year that was “good” but which she wishes was “great”.

“My year was good. I would not lie; I wish it [had] been great,” she said at a Carnival Development Corporation press briefing Tuesday.

“Miss SVG is an ambassador for St. Vincent and the Grenadines and I must say that one of the things that … I would really like to see the Ministry of Culture utilise the Miss SVG not only to promote St. Vincent and the Grenadines on a local level but [also] regionally and internationally as well. So I think that’s something that I would love to see done,” she said.

“I was involved in a number of activities based at the community level. I was afforded the opportunity of being the spokes persons of CARE SVG,” she said of the HIV/AIDS sensitization group.

Charles said that some Vincentian businesses discriminate against and stigmatise person living with HIV/AIDS and her organisation helps them to find employment.

Charles plans to redeem this year the university scholarship she won along with the Miss SVG crown last year.

She has already been accepted by the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados but hope to study media and communication with emphasis on integrated marketing communications at the universities Mona campus in Jamaica.

  1. I know the young lady was disappointed but I will urge her to focus on her studies. There are those who wish they had gotten that oppertunity.This do not always turn out the way yu anticipate but all things work together for good for those who love God.

    • You’re correct, she’s no where ‘near’ beautiful…when I look at her I see an amazing, courageous and astoundingly beautiful young lady. 🙂

  5. You don’t have to be beautiful to wear a crown….she got more brains than those who appear beautiful on the outside,,,,Many wished to wear that crown but she was afforded that opportunity bcuz she focused more on her studies than beautifying herself…Beauty is skin deep,,,peel off another layer
