Leia's Miss Taranaki

Seventeen-year-old Leia Edmonds was crowned Miss Taranaki at the annual pageant staged in New Plymouth last weekend.

Leia, who studied at WITT in 2017 and 2018, was crowned by the 2018 Miss Taranaki, Julia Crighton.

Another WITT gradates, Valentine Fernandes, won the title in 2016 and went on to take part in Miss World NZ and Miss Global Beauty Queen.

Contestants in this year’s event raised more than $14,000 for the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust.
