T&T beauties take spotlight at Miss Oneness
Oneness Entertainment Trinidad and Tobago (OETT) has been established in 2011, as the sister company of Oneness Entertainment of the USA, to promote the beauty, culture and tourism of T&T and Nicaragua. Showing the genuine cohesiveness of these two nations, the organisation is operated by its president/CEO Vanessa Sahatoo-Manoo and its board of directors. Sahatoo-Manoo is also the director and pageant co-ordinator of the Miss Oneness Beauty Pageant, and has been very instrumental in its successes, including the crowning of Miss Princess of the World, Czech Republic 2009; first runner-up in the Miss Global International Pageant, Jamaica 2009; and, the top nine delegates in the Miss Princess of the World Pageant, held in the Czech Republic in 2010.Sahatoo-Manoo is also the national franchise-holder for the Miss Earth of the Philippines pageant, and also the co-franchise national director for the Miss International Woman Beauty Pageant of Canada, with Angeli Kapoor-Pur, founder of the Angel Foundation. T&T’s representative Renee Bhagwandeen placed second runner-up, and recipient of the Most Photogenic award, last June in the Miss International Woman Beauty Pageant.
On December 3, 2011, 24-year-old Melanie George-Sharpe proudly represented our beautiful twin island state of T&T at the prestigious 11th staging of the Miss Earth Beauty Pageant in Naga City in the southern part of Luzon. To compliment the theme of International Year of the Forests, George-Sharpe has been working diligently with the EMA and also visited the Nariva Swamp, the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust and volunteered at the annual Coastal Clean-Up with the EMA at the Manzanilla Beach. Sahatoo-Manoo said: “Though OETT is less than one-year-old, Miss George-Sharpe is the second young woman from the Miss Oneness T&T Beauty Pageant to represent our country internationally.“Some of the major highlights of the pageant were promoting green bags filled with organic products, visiting universities, seminars, tree-planting and street parades that focused on the relevant environmental issues afflicting our planet.” George-Sharpe spoke about the Nariva Swamp Restoration, Carbon Sequestration and Livelihoods Project (NSRP).
