Hardbeatnews, BANGKOK, Thailand, Tues. May 24, 2005: Meet 20-year-old Miss Barbados, Nada Yearwood, who is among 81 global beauties and 13 Caribbean nationals with hopes of becoming the next Miss Universe.

The 5’8”, Yearwood has her eye on the coveted title, but is also realistic in her goals, hoping to study screenplay writing, directing and producing at the end of her reign as Miss Barbados.

But for now she’s busy using the values of compassionate and gratefulness she was taught by her disabled mother, to get through each day.

Yearwood, however, faces tough competition, not just from the international beauties, but from her fellow regional counterparts, like Miss Belize, Andrea Elrington, who is articulate and sexy. The 5’9”, 22-year-old is currently a student of communications and public relations at the Fort Valley State University in Georgia and hopes to win the pageant for her country and use it to expand her platform of helping the needy.

But if that fails, Elrington says she’ll still pursue her ultimate career ambition, which is to be hired as an international correspondent at CNN or the International Public Relations Specialist for Trump Enterprises.

From Curacao, comes Rychacviana Coffie, 24, who at 5’9” claims her passion is modeling. But she’s also big on numbers, hoping to cop a management position at the Maduro & Curiel’s Bank, the biggest bank on Curacao, where she now works.

But for now, she too is to use the patience and energy she learnt during her job as a waiter at a standard catering service company, to stay focused on the prize.

Tomorrow we bring you Miss Dominican Republic, Guyana and Jamaica.

The Miss Universe pageant is set for May 31 in Thailand, which is recovering from the devastating Tsunami of December, 2004. – Hardbeatnews.com
