Twenty-year-old Valdie Dejean comes from the Roseau Valley, an area which boasts some of the finest natural attractions on the island, and in Morne Prosper where she lives, arguably produces the best vegetables in the country.
A cursory glance at the resume of this fine young lady reveals she possesses some of the qualities and attributes that are essential for success. Behind her sultry good looks, enchanting smile, exquisite charm and outgoing personality is a determined, focused and self-motivated young lady.
After her graduation from one of Dominicaâ€™s oldest academic institutions, the Dominica Grammar School, Valdie pursued an Associateâ€™s Degree in French and Accounting at the Dominica State College. Her ultimate career goal is to pursue graduate studies in Cosmetology and Accounting.
Since leaving college, Valdie has performed a variety of roles at institutions locally. Currently, she is employed as a receptionist in the Ministry of Trade.
Valdie is a well rounded individual as exemplified by her diverse interests. She is a member of the Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company, an active member of her village youth group and is one of an elite group of just eight young ladies nationally representing Lime Dominica. Her hobbies include dancing, reading and socializing. She also has a natural flair for beauty, hair and fashion.
Valdieâ€™s decision to participate in the Miss Dominica 2010 pageant is her small contribution towards enhancing Dominicaâ€™s unique cultural product, of which carnival is an essential component.
She will use the opportunity to impress on all Dominicans, that the future success of the Nature Isle lies in replicating nationally what the Roseau Valley has to offer- tourism and agriculture working in unison for national prosperity.
