Miss Universe Barbados 2018

  • Age: 26
  • Height : 6’1″ / 1.86m
  • Highest level of education attained:
    Bachelor’s of Management and Organisational Studies – Specialisation in Consumer Behaviour and Major in French

What are three fun facts about you?

  • In Upper Sixth I co-produced Queen’s College’s very first graduation fundraising Model Search called Star Strut.
  • While living in France, I travelled to Istanbul, Budapest, Scotland and Vienna alone and those visits were some of my more memorable experiences.
  • I am a huge fan of the movie The Sound of Music. I know every song by heart and can probably quote most of the lines in the movie. I was also fortunate enough to go on a Sound of Music tour in Austria while on a family vacation and I’m quite certain we knew more about the movie than the tour guide!

What is a world issue that concerns you?
Gender inequality. While there are many aspects of it globally that profoundly restrict the advancement and development of girls and women, I personally want to advance gender equality in the workforce especially as it relates to the proverbial “glass ceiling.”

Why do you want to be Miss Universe?
I want to be Miss Universe because I believe that life begins outside of your comfort zone. Simply competing would be a challenge I look forward to, but winning the crown would be the beginning of an exciting new page in my life and a chance to inspire others.
