|The stunning newly crowned Ms Virgin Gorda Easter Festival 2014 Ms Tecora Morgan|
1)Please tell us who you are for those not familiar with you?
Born and raised In the beautiful British Virgin Islands, I'm 18 year old Tecora Morgan, Ms Virgin Gorda Easter Festival 2014. A phenomenal young lady who enjoys the finer things in life. I'm very involved in my community and I help out as much as I can. I enjoy playing soccer, reading and singing.
I would say my fashion sense is eclectic. I love playing with different looks, I'm fine with wearing a pair of jeans and a simple tee and making pop with accessories and then switch it up by having a chic look.
3)What 3 words best describe you as a person?
Three words that best describes me as an individual would have to be talented, ambitious and energetic.
4)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?
5)What made you enter Ms Virgin Gorda Easter Festival pageant?
I love taking part in festival, and I'm no stranger to the pageant world. I decided to enter the pageant because I thought it would be another great experience, and they do say without experience you cant grow as a person. With all the support and encouragement I thought it would have been a great idea.
After meeting with the girls I felt confident about having a bit more experience than them, but at the same time its a competition and you cant predict who's going to win or not. But I went in to the competition with a good spirit and felt confident enough to bring home the crown.
7)How was the feeling hearing your name call out as the winner?
Everyone knows how great it feels to achieve something that you worked extremely hard for. It was an amazing feeling hearing my name being called as the winner. I felt that all my hard work didn't go to waste.
8)What are your 4 top secrets to winning a crown?
To win a crown will take a lot confidence! Confidence is key. You also got to have the walk, the talk and the poise. Beauty alone won't help you win, you have to have the full package.
Men who teach women how to walk are talented individuals who help women to bring out the best in them. I would say they're a blessing who perform such art.
10)What do you think of the Fashion Police News blog?
I think the blog is very informative, creative and entertaining. It gives people the opportunity to not only get a bit of exposure but also an opportunity to allow people to get to know who they are.
11)When not working what do you love doing?
I love going on the field and playing a bit of soccer, taking long walks while listening to music to clear my mind and relaxing on the beach with a book in my hand.
Yes, I'm actually currently participating in the Ms British Virgin Islands Pageant.
13)If you had the power to change the pageant world what are a few things you would change?
If I had the power to change the pageant world, it would be to ensure that the contestants see their scores at the end of the pageant. Mainly to ensure that they see which areas they are better in.
14)Tell us more about yourself as a person:
I put my best foot forward in all that I do, and I also like to encourage my peers to nothing but the absolute best. Education is key, and I'm studying to become a Forensic Scientist. I'm a generous, kind hearted individual and I like to give back to my community. I'm bettering myself to become a great role model to young girls my age.
I love many genres of music, but soca will definitely make me move my feet..
16)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare them?
I do cook, but I would prefer to bring the Fashion Police out to some of the locally owned restaurants to experience the British Virgin Islands native cuisines.
17)What are 4 things you see girls doing in pageants that makes you mad?
Four things I dislike seeing from girls in pageants would be their lack of confidence. Some girls even have a lack of interest, as if they're being forced to take part in the pageant. Also, girls who don't follow instructions and don't practice as much as they should.
18)What is 2 things you just cannot leave home without?
I cannot leave home without my cellphone and my headphones.
Those 4 persons would be my mom, my dad and both of my chaperones. They push me to my limits knowing that I have what it takes to do my best and they always have my back.
20)Who is your role model and why?
My role model is a phenomenal lady in my community who goes by the name of Rose Gardener. She is the epiphany of a renewed spirit and she always gives back to her community even though she is retired from hospitality.
The fact that the journey flies by quickly, the thrill is very anticipating. Being with the girls prior to the pageant, meeting new people and also bettering yourself as a person.
22)If the Fashion Police was to be a fly n your bedroom wall what would they be shocked to see?
Well they will see how much of a heel freak I am, especially how they are color coded in my closet.
My advice to young women entering pageants, is to enter with a good mentality and look at it as entering yourself as a person, mainly because you can learn a lot just from joining a pageant.
24)Where do you see yourself in 8 years time?
Eight years from now I see myself as one of the best forensic scientist in the territory, with my house on the hill and to have a blessed family.
To you the blog readers, life is precious, so make every moment count. In all you do put your best foot forward and do nothing but the best, hard work pays off. Society today isn't easy, so live life for you and no one else. I would like to thank fashion police for interviewing me, and I hope you the readers enjoyed it.

|Top contender in the Mr Summer 2014 pageant Mr Jelani Fleming has his eyes set on the crown|
1)Please tell us who you are for those not familiar with you?
I am Jelani Fleming, born on June 26th, 1995.
I've recently finished my first level of schooling and looking forward to soon furthering my studies. Back in 2012 I was elected Jr Minister of Saint-Martin where I represented the island on a touristic level, regionally. I was also elected Prom King 2012 for the Prom held on the French side of the island.
The three words that best describe me are: Creative, Ambitious & Optimistic
3)Describe your Fashion sense?
I always look to wow myself when dressing, mainly when attending events. I dislike wearing trendy outfits especially when the whole world is wearing the same things. I like being different to others.
4)What made you enter the Mr Summer 2014 Pageant?
To be honest, I've been ready to participate in Mr Summer since 2012 at the time organized by E. F. but it was cancelled for quite some time. So when I got that message on my Facebook asking me to participate in this competition I was more than happy and ready to say "Yes". I like competitions and been attending this show from it was created, I've had that drive to participate.
After meeting my competitors I strongly believe that the crown is mines. But as I've always said it can be anyone's game on the night of the show because everyone has their different tactics. However, I remain quite confident about my appearances and may the best candidate win.
I have a great amount of things in store to reveal on the night of the show. I urge everyone reading this blog to come out in large numbers to witness this historical show. Just to enlighten you on your expectations: it's going to be Creative, Innovative and Exciting!
7)Tell us all about the Mr/Ms Summer pageant?
Miss Summer started back in 2007 and Mister Summer was added back in 2010. Thus far it's been one of the life-given shows for Summer on Saint-Martin. But ever since it stopped there weren't much exciting and interesting events to attend on the French side. However with this great comeback, I believe this is just a great start and of course a boost for Summer in this Paradise.
This year in my section, we are about 6 candidates and we'll be gracing the stage in 5 judged segments and an introduction. Our segments are: Club wear, Professional wear, Sports wear, Summer beach wear and Gentleman's wear.
I am currently wearing a Ralph Lauren perfume.
9)What do you think of the Fashion Police News Blog?
The Fashion Police News Blog is a great initiative and I commend you on that. I usually keep up to date from time to time especially when people that I am familiar with are being arrested like My sister Ms. Shanyra Richardson and my cousin Ms. Luciana Raspail. This blog allows the participants of any competition to get world wide exposure and that is beyond great.
To think of the idea of a man teaching a woman how to walk may seem crazy. But at the end or the day everyone has their lane, everyone has their passion and calling. So if that is what he decided and he's comfortable with it; then so be it.
When not working, I enjoy discovering more of Saint-Martin, Doing touristic activities and of course creating memories with friends and loved ones.
12)If the Fashion Police was to be a fly on your bedroom wall what would they be shocked to see?
They would definitely be shocked by the mess I often have on busy days..
I'm a sucker for soca, so music from artistes like Machel Montano would have me going.
14)Who are your 4 best friends you would ride and die for?
I have many good friends, but in order to not create any jealousy everyone is treated the same way. I go all out for any of my friends, any day.
I would cook up a great Caribbean delicacy for the F.P. or that can be the opportunity to taste my finger-licking lasaña that which I'll be doing a Lasaña lunch delivery on June 12th, in Saint-Martin.
16)If you could turn yourself into 1 fruit what fruit would it be and why?
If I had that chance, I'd probably turn myself into a pineapple. First of all because it's my favorite fruit but I admire the shape and texture as well. Not to forget the sweet & sometimes sour side of that fruit.
Well, my zodiac sign is Cancer. I am a very generous person, down to earth and outgoing. If there's anyway I can help in something I would always try my utmost best.
But to come back to Mr. Summer, when I participate in any type of competition and I am well known for going all the way out for the sky isn't my limit. To add to that I will say: I was the chaperon of Ms. Jeanette Annicette who won Ms. Elegant Plus Size 2013 and the hashtag for my supporters is #TeamCoco #MisterSummer2014
18)What is 1 thing people say about you that is not true that you would love to address here?
People tend to say that I have a lot of pride. I do admit sometimes it doesn't hide. But I do not let my pride hold me back from anything.
I dislike seeing a mother taking good care of herself, but her children are being treated like rubbish.
Young females who wear these trending jewelry with the words "Bad B@/&#" whereas they don't want to be categorized or called by that name.
And lastly women who try to fit in trending fashion but their body type isn't fit for the particular clothing.
20)Where do you see yourself in 8 years time?
In 8 years I see myself running my decorating and event planning company Exquisite Designs & Decorations Event Planners on a wider scale. In my own house and most likely my family and car(s).
My Father is my role model. He's my guide through most of the endeavors that I undergo and I admire him for the inner drive that he has into reaching higher heights in life.
22)What would you say is your best assets?
I would honestly say my best asset is my great reflex. I understand things quite fast and I am quick to adjust myself to different situations or circumstances.
Winning Mr Summer 2014 only proves to myself that I can do whatever I wish to do, once I put my head to it.
I would take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who took the time to read my 24 long answers. I encourage you to support my fellow candidates and I on July 19th in the Paradise village in Galisbay, Saint-Martin.
