Miss Creole Des Iles 2015 Debbie Horsman accompanied by her 1st Princess and Miss Personality Marie-Antoinette Robert, 2nd Princess and Best Evening wear winner Emma Denousse, People’s Choice winner Shanorah Laurence, Miss Photogenic Kimberly Joseph, and the other contestants of Miss Creole des Iles 2015 Laura Kilindo, Karin Moncherry, Nifa Moumou, and Marie-Eve Joe, were joined by Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture; Benjamine Rose, the PS for Culture; Terry Carolla, the man behind the Miss Creole Pageant; and the two MCs for the pageant night Kevin Perine and Asha Didon for a congratulatory function at the DelPlace Restaurant at Port Glaud.
In the presence of the French Ambassador, Mr. Lionel Majeste-Larrouy and Pierre Delplace, the owner of the DelPlace Restaurant, Minister St.Ange addressed the Miss Creole des Iles winners and participants to firstly congratulate the winners and to also wish all the contestants well. “As I stand here to firstly congratulate Mr. Terry Carolla for staging the event, I need to also say that as Culture Minister we shall continue to stand by him. You have done something, and doing something is always more difficult than just sitting down and criticizing. Doers are recognized always, and will continue to be recognized which is why today we say thank you to you Mr. Carolla,” Minister Alain St.Ange said.
The Minister then went on to thank Mr. Pierre Delplace for hosting the event for not only the winners of the Miss Creole des Iles Pageant but also for all the participants. “We thank you Mr. Delplace for working as well with the Department of Culture as you work with the tourism industry. You understand the need for us to be united as one, and your support is really appreciated. We see you and shall continue to see you as a positive member of the tourism industry, because you understand the need to break the egg to have an omelet as you work with us at the Ministry for the benefit of Seychelles,” said Minister St.Ange before standing alongside the French Ambassador, PS Benjamine Rose, and Mr. Terry Carolla with the Miss Creole des Iles for a souvenir photo.
