Newly crowned Miss Haiti vows to support women, youth, and the poor – CSMonitor.com


The crowd was already chanting her name before 25-year-old restaurant owner Carolyn Desert was crowned Miss Haiti 2014 Sunday in Port-au-Prince.She steadied the crown, decorated with crystals and tiny mirrors, as she acknowledged the standing ovation at the Karibe Convention Center and repeated a vow she’d made earlier in the competition: “I’m going to support the youth. I’m going to support women. I’m going to support the poor.”Desert, a freelance writer and the owner of a Mexican restaurant in the upscale Petionville district of Port-au-Prince, is known for supporting artists and helping impoverished children. She was a favorite from the beginning. Her wide smile earned her a “most photogenic” award, and her eloquent response during the competition’s question-and-answer segment made the crowd of more than 400 people erupt in applause. via – CSMonitor.com.
