“Beauty begins, the moment you decide to embrace it within yourself,” said 2018 CNMI Liberation Day Queen Brinae Jessilyn Maratita Cruz.

“This is an unforgettable experience to gain new friendships, gain confidence in oneself, and engage with the community. Learn to empower the strength you have, enhance the beauty within you, and prosper bigger dreams. As for being the 2018 Liberation Day Queen, it has brought so much tears of joy. I have met so much wonderful people. This is all such a learning experience, yet memorable memories are made out of it!”

Each candidate will have the ability to sell Liberation Day raffle tickets to raise funds and host other various approved fundraisers.

The 2019 CNMI Liberation Day Committee is preparing the official raffle prizes with an announcement to come out soon. The Liberation Day Royal Court titleholders are determined by the amount of money each candidate raises through the sale of raffle tickets.
