She Came She Saw And She Conquered
Miss ONENESS Beauty is Crowned
Miss Princess of The World 2009
3, 2009- Master
of Ceremony: Kathiel, you are always smiling and full of energy to
what do you attribute this? “I am always smiling and full of energy
because I possess a confidence in me that I could do anything as long as I
put God first because without God you can’t do anything.” And
this was the winning answer that would give Nicaragua the international
crown she so longed for.
On September 13th 2009 Miss Oneness 2007
Miss Kathiel Lampson embarked on a journey that would take her
across the world to a new continent unknown to her. Her journey would take
her to the Czech Republic where dreams and history of vast proportions
would be realized. The lovely Miss Lampson traveled to represent her
lovely Caribbean coast and the entire Nicaragua at the most prestigious
beauty pageant in Europe, the “Miss Princess Of The World 2009 Beauty
Pageant” to be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
She was anxious and vibrant and very confident of herself as she boarded
her plane at Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport in Managua, Copa
flight 0105 at 3:41PM that connects in Panama and then to Amsterdam and
Kathiel left her native land with high expectation of winning the crown
but she also knew that the competition would indeed be tough and that she
had to compete against 38 other beautiful young ladies from around the
world, but yet that did not deter her from her focus and commitment. After
her long 17 hours journey to the Czech Republic it was all about work and
a little fun time in between. The delegates had the unique opportunity to
visit many scenic places including Hungary, visit interesting sites and
meet with prominent, affluent and diplomatic dignitaries. The pageant was
officially launched on September 15th 2009 in the Czech
Republic. Everyday there were activities surrounding the pageant leading
up the grand coronation night on September 26th 2009 at the
world famous Top Hotel Praha in Prague.
Finally, the long awaited night of all nights came in the twinkling of an
eye and it was show time. Lights started flashing and the television crews
and press crews positioned themselves well to get the very best of this
production. This was indeed a one of a kind experience. The organizing
team of the pageant company was very professional, articulate and detailed
oriented. The Miss Princess Of The World Beauty Pageant is
synonymous of a first class pageant and truly one of a kind. The young
ladies were treated like the royalties they were and the officials ensured
their safety at all times.
The pageant was flawless from start to finish. A great experience for all
39 delegates to share with others and one truly rewarding experience that
they will cherish and remember for a life time.
The night before the show, Pageant Coordinator of the Miss ONENESS
Beauty Pageant/International Chaperone Mrs. Vanessa Sahatoo and I
sat down with Miss Lampson and we discussed her cumulative closure with
the upcoming contest. The advice given was to go out there and do your
very best to represent the Caribbean coast and the entire Nicaragua. Take
control of the stage we told her, we know you could do it because you have
all the potential in you. The night of the show as Vanessa applied Kat’s
make-up backstage in the dressing room, I looked at how relaxed and
comfortable she was and it felt so surreal, and I recalled two emails she
had sent us just before her journey that would change her life forever.
Kat usually refers to us as Mom and Dad because of the extra care we take
with her; after all she is our daughter.
One of the emails dated August 13th 2009 at 5:21PM she wrote:
“Dad and mom I’m so happy, I got the permission approved so I will
be able to proudly represent our Caribbean coast once more. Am really
Another email dated August 13th at 11:01PM reads: “Ok mom and daddy
I don’t want you all feel any way, this is another opportunity for me and
I promise both of you that I am not going to disappoint you all, this is
time to show everybody that we the Nicaraguans can do it, I promise both
of you that I am going to prepare myself very good to do a good job in
this beauty pageant because nothing is impossible and all of my people are
depending on me and they also trust in me.”
Kathiel was ever so confident but she knew that we trusted in her ability
to see it through. The funny thing is we never pressured her, we just told
her to go out there and have fun, give it all you got, do your best.
Kathiel started to warm to the audience the minute she graced the stage in
the very first segment – Introduction in her National Costume designed by
Erick Flores. She wowed the crowd as she worked and took ownership of the
stage. Up next was the Swimsuit segment and Kathiel was just starting to
make her presence felt stronger. I have never seen Kathiel so confident
and poised, and that she was just having fun on stage. She followed the
advice we gave her to perfection and exuded that electrifying charm. One
would think that she was just an act not a contestant. No nerves. She
graciously captivated the audience in attendance and they were all hers
from then on. The Swimsuit segment was quickly followed with the fashion
show presentation and Miss Nicaragua Kathiel Lampson received the loudest
cheers of the night. I often wondered since I got back what was going on.
Here we are from one of the smallest countries in the world, a different
culture, the majority of Prague never had heard of us and there they were
cheering for Nicaragua.
Then the moment of moments came where the judges choose the TOP 9 out of
39 beautiful young ladies who all deserved to be called but only 9 could
actually make it. The nine were chosen. As each delegate’s country and
name was called the ones that made it in the TOP 9 were not given the
beautiful white rose, they were asked to stay on stage instead. They were
Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, South Africa, Malta, Chile, Hungary, Slovakia,
Ukraine and Nicaragua.
Dressed in their respective evening gowns made exclusively for the
delegates by some of the top designers in the Czech Republic the Final
Question segment came and Miss Lampson gave her answer, and the audience
applauded with such jubilee and excitement that the photographers flashed
their cameras and started to move all over trying to capture the moment
when the entire auditorium at the Top Hotel Praha was cheering for an
unknown, Miss Nicaragua - Kathiel Lampson. She answered her question with
such eloquence, finesse and confidence and never once faltered. She had to
get her point across and she did so naturally, so classy and so
Master of Ceremony: Kathiel, you are always smiling and full of
energy to what do you attribute this? “I am always smiling and full
of energy because I posses a confidence in me that I could do anything as
long as I put God first because without God you can’t do anything.”
And this was the winning answer that would give Nicaragua the
international crown she so long for.
In the end Miss Oneness 2007/Miss Nicaragua to the Miss
Princess Of The World the lovely Kathiel Lampson made history of vast
proportion. Never in the history of Nicaragua has this been accomplished.
When they announced that Miss Nicaragua was the winner Kathiel Lampson
paused with no reaction. The Emcee asked her to come forward and the
lovely smile reappeared even more brilliantly. She was in awe, that yes
her dream has come true!
This is not a win only for Nicaragua, but also for Trinidad & Tobago who
have been steadfast and committed in its endeavor in supporting the
Miss Oneness Beauty Pageant unconditionally.
CAN WE DO IT?.....................YES WE CAN!!!!
CAN WE ACHIEVE IT?........OH YES……..YES……YES WE CAN…
AND WE DID………………...WE DID!!!!
