U.S. Virgin Islands Miss Universe Contestant, St. Thomas Native Esonica Veira, Hopes To Make Us Proud This Month In Las Vegas


CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Esonica Veira will represent the Virgin Islands at the Miss Universe pageant late this month in Las Vegas.

Veira has been a top model in St. Thomas since nine years of age, beginning with the Roses and Champagne Agency.

She has participated in many other fashion events including the Face of Shabeau in Barbados, winning the coveted cover model spot, and the Caribbean Fashion Week Catwalk held annually in the Virgin Islands.

Esonica considers that the most memorable moment for her was when she joined America’s Next Top Model in 2007. She made the first cut during the casting call auditions in Montgomery, Alabama.

She was also a finalist in the singing competition, V.I. Idol, in 2008.

The Miss Universe U.S. Virgin Islands organization has acquired the license for the Virgin Islands to enter a delegate in the Miss Universe pageant.

The international pageant will be held in Las Vegas on Nov. 26.
