Glitz and glam? Maybe. Brains and beauty? For sure. But being Miss Teen is about so much more.
Sure, the catwalk is a great place to strut, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a career as an international supermodel?
But Miss Teen Cayman is also about community, and most importantly, it’s about Cayman. Representing the country and doing the residents proud.
That’s exactly what the half dozen contestants learned during their whistle stop tour of the country as they get set for Aug. 26.
Whether it was live broadcasts on Radio Cayman, meeting some old folks on the Sister Islands, or posing for pictures with the individual sponsors, these girls have to be professional, courteous and at the top of their game. And it’s so far, so good. They’ve delivered when and where it matters.
But to fair they did have a little help from someone who knows only too well the responsibility of being Miss Teen… last year’s winner Liana De Costa.
The Miss Teen Cayman event takes place on Saturday August 26 at the Lions Centre. Gates open 5:30 p.m.
Due to a previous family commitment overseas, Kevie-Ann Peirre couldn’t make the trip to the Brac.
