Kaiane Aldorino, from Gibraltar, who was elected Miss World 2009, will crown her successor. One of the contenders for the title is Cape Verde’s own Miss, 22-year-old Joceline Fortes Rocha.
On the Miss World site, Web users can find the Rocha’s profile and videos (www.missworld.com/contestant2010/showconstestant2010/cape-verde). According to her biography, she is currently in her second year of journalism studies and works in public relations. Reading, swimming and theater are her hobbies, and her motto in life is “Be Happy.”
Miss Cape Verde, who hopes one day to be the director of a publication and study Political Science, calls her native land “a small but truly good country with friendly people.”
