My twin sister Taleah and I, with our mother's permission and support, entered the Miss Teenage Trinidad & Tobago pageant. At the time I gained a few pounds and felt a little out of sorts. I didn't get selected as a finalist and I don't think Taleah did either. Anyway, I chose to wear trousers for the evening gown segment. The audience didn't like that very much. I also completely screwed up my interview segment. After all that mayhem, I still ended up with some media attention, so I guess it wasn't all that bad!
