- EUSTATIUS–Mother and daughter team Teena Lopes and Genesis George are crowned as Daughters of The King (DOTK) Foundation’s 2019 Mother-Daughter pageant winners on Saturday on St. Eustatius. The duo also won the titles of Best Introduction and Best African Wear.
First runners-up are Jineidy Bolan and Nayema Schmidt. They captured the title of Most Popular Contestants, based on an online poll. Best Talent and Best Evening Wear titles were also won by this mother and daughter team.
The Second runners-up were Nadjeska Jack and Janaira Hooker. They also took home the sashes for Most Photogenic, Best Occupational Wear and Best Interview.
The 2018 DOTK Queen and Princess Sjahairah Fleming and Ta’sjierni Fleming assisted DOTK Director and pageant producer Elaine Cuvalay-Jeffrey with the crowning ceremony. All contestants received necklaces from Zhaveri Jewelers, one of DOTK sponsors in St. Maarten.
The goal of the pageant was to bring mothers and daughters together to spend quality time via pageant preparation. “By doing so the special bond that the teams share would be strengthened,” said Cuvalay-Jeffrey.
Anna Richardson of St. Maarten Posh Production co-produced the pageant. Judges were St. Maarten Member of Parliament (MP) Silveria Jacobs, Carlishia Philips, Zuweana Suares, Shobhan Giterson and Chande Rivers.
Charity Cantave was mistress of ceremonies.
