THE Gladstone 2012 Jubilee Queen Quest is nearing an end. Our queen will be crowned tomorrow at 6.30pm at the Marina main stage, during the Gladstone Harbour Festival opening ceremony.

Jessica Cuttiford is the next queen to be questioned by The Observer.

Why have you decided to enter the competition? I have never entered into any competition in my life. A side of me is entering to build-up some confidence in front of a crowd and the other side is to extol the virtues of Gladstone.

Why do you want to be queen and what do you hope to achieve? I have lived in Gladstone for a year now and have realised how much it has to offer. I would love to be a part of promoting others to come to Gladstone and help keep current locals here. I realise what toll it has taken on locals with rent increases and cost of living, so if there was a way I could help with the current situation, well, I'm in!

What do you love most about Gladstone? It's location! The great job opportunities and the people.

Finally, why should people vote for you? I am a bright, bubbly and positive person that looks to the future. I am easy to relate to and enjoy having fun! I want to make Gladstone a better place to live.

The special 50th anniversary opening ceremony will include local band The Corporates and Australian rock legends Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde.
