Carolyn Yapp is Appointed Miss Jamaica Universe 2009
When Pulse, the Jamaican organization that holds the Miss Universe franchise gave it up for this year because of the economic crisis, Donald Trump-led Miss Universe Organization requested they wanted a Miss Jamaica at the Miss Universe 2009 in the Bahamas. Then, the search went on.
Pulse Chairman Kingsley Cooper said that this is the last year they will be sending a representative to the pageant but if they can't find a worthy candidate then they're not going to participate.
Luckily, Pulse found the qualities they were looking on Carolyn Yapp who was immediately appointed as Miss Jamaica Universe 2009.
Carolyn is 25 years old and an Interior Designer. She hopes to make the Jamaican proud when she competes at the pageant in August 23rd.
