Most memorable model moment:
Auditioning for America's Next top model in 2007. I had the
opportunity to attend the ANTM auditions, believe or not I made the
first "cut" for the casting call auditions in Montgomery Alabama.


Esonica 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 will also be the first local model to have the opportunity to
be the FACE of Virgin Islands Fashion Week for the year 2013.

Esonica’s love for pageantry is evident and her list of success on the
local and international level includes winning the titles of Ms
Hal Jackson’s Virgin Islands Talented Teen 2005, Ms Hal Jackson’s
International Talented Teen 2005, Ms America’s Outstanding Teen Talent
Winner 2006 and Virgin Islands Carnival Queen 2007. She was also a
finalist in the singing competition, V.I. Idol in 2008. Another
achievement was participating and being awarded 1st Runner Up in the
2010 Ms Virgin Islands Universe Pageant in 2010 and also winning the
categories of Best swimwear & Best Evening wear.

Not being deterred, Esonica once again competed in 2011 for the title
of Miss Virgin Islands Universe and was again a Runner Up. However,
this time the top finishers were given the opportunity to represent
the Virgin Islands on the International level, and Esonica was
selected as the Miss World Virgin Islands and represented the US
Virgin Islands at the Miss World Pageant which was held in London in
November 2011.

Esonica did an excellent job and made the Semi-Finals or Finals in
most of the Preliminary Competitions, and finished in the Semi-Finals,
11th place overall from a field of 113 contestants, and 2nd overall in
the Talent Finals.

The latest achievement by this talented young lady was her selection
as one of ‘The 50 Most Beautiful Women in the World” by a panel of
judges for Global Beauties. A panel of international judges made their
selection based on the top international pageants held worldwide in

Esonica is very interested in promoting self esteem in young ladies
and views pageantry, fashion and performing arts as avenues for
building self confidence and assisting in one’s overall development
