FIRST PAGEANT AWAY FROM HOME

The result of my participation in the Miss World Trinidad and Tobago pageant was winning the award and title of Miss Trinidad and Tobago for Miss Carival. As fourth runner-up, I became the official representative for my country at the Miss Carival pageant in St. Vincent the following year. This long-standing, talent-based, regional pageant, hosts delegates from all over the world.

Although I wasn't heading to Nigeria to take part in the Miss World pageant, I still felt content. Miss Carival would be my first pageant away from home, on my own, in another country.

Soon after winning this award and title, my preparations and responsibilities as Miss Trinidad and Tobago for Miss Carival began. Again, I delved head first into the world of pageantry, with my eyes set on a different title this time.
