Ten highly motivated, smart, articulate and beautiful young ladies. Any of them can be the next Miss Liberia. Or even the next Miss Africa. Or the next Miss World for that matter. But tonight, there’s only one crown. So who gets to wear that coveted crown? Definitely, the decision will be the toughest job for the judge who pronounces the wearer of the next Miss Liberia crown. But wait a minute….before any final verdict is passed; or before the damsels do their stuff on stage, let’s hear a bit from the ladies themselves.
