McLean, who was first runner-up in the Miss SVG 2022 pageant and second runner-up in the Miss Jaycees 2022 pageant, said the pageant is also an opportunity for current students to become more involved in extracurricular activities, which will assist in their planning, multitasking, and networking abilities.

In the build-up to the pageant, contestants will engage in various community activities, focusing on health education and health promotion. The pageant’s committee is aiming to collaborate with schools and community-based organisations on this initiative.
