Dominica’s reigning Mother’s Queen, Nisha Prosper, is on a mission to capture the crown at the highly anticipated 2024 Miss International Elegant Mother’s Pageant (MIEMP). Despite her unwavering confidence and dedication, Prosper finds herself confronted with a formidable obstacle that could impede her dreams—a lack of sponsorship.
Prosper’s hopes are riding on securing the support she needs to represent the island and compete on the international stage. This situation eerily mirrors the predicament faced by last year’s representative, Hendrica Smith, who ultimately triumphed by obtaining the necessary assistance.
Speaking exclusively to Dominica News Online (DNO), Prosper shared her heartfelt aspirations for the pageant, saying, “I am confident in my abilities and the message I want to convey on the MIEMP stage. My mission is aligned with the pageant’s goal of empowering and uplifting mothers and I want to carry that message forward and make my island proud.”
However, the reality of the mother of two’s journey to the MIEMP stage remains uncertain due to the financial constraints associated with her entry fee of US$1500, which is due on September 30. While Prosper and her team are diligently reaching out to various business establishments in search of sponsorship, she also urges anyone willing to assist to contact her at telephone number 1 767 265 8437.
In a previous interview with DNO, David Williams, the MIEMP’s National Director, emphasized the pageant’s core values, explaining, “The goal of the event, which made its debut in 2016, is to empower, uplift, and recognize mothers through pageantry. But most importantly, it’s about honouring and shining a light on mothers for their humanitarian gift from God.”
The show is scheduled to take place in Guyana on April 27, 2024.
