You've got this, Kaci!

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Anyone who has been following the Miss Universe pageant so far must be immensely proud of Kaci Fennell and the way she has represented herself and the country over the past several weeks in Doral, Florida.

Her bubbly personality, confidence, and the way she stays true to herself and her Jamaican roots, always energetic and smiling, remind us of another beautiful Jamaican who rose to the top recently, Tessanne Chin.

Kaci has been consistent and emerged an instant favourite the moment she landed in Florida. This year, in particular, there is keen interest in the pageant, mainly because it is so close to home, being held in Miami-Dade County, Florida, home of many Latinos, who traditionally tend to win this pageant, and also home to many Jamaicans and other Caribbean nationals eager and willing to see one of our girls crowned for a change.

The Miss Universe Jamaica organisers seemed to have done a great job this year revamping the local pageant. As the Miss Universe 2014-15 pageant draws to a close this weekend, I wish Kaci the very best!
