All set for Miss Teen 2013

Seven contestants from various high schools around the island are set to compete for the title of Miss Teen Dominica 2013.

The pageant is organised by the Waitukubuli Dance theatre and this year marks the 35th anniversary of the show.

Chief Culltural Officer Raymond Lawrence said “the show is geared at developing and showcasing the talents and skills of the youth.”

He noted that the pageant provides a platform for the young ladies to be trained in public speaking, modelling, artistic, creative design and other aspects of culture.

Lawrence noted that two past Miss teen Dominica winners went on to capture titles at other international pageants held at their universities. They are Samirah Joseph and Kerry Panthier.

The contestants of this year’s pageant include Lizanne Roah of the Dominica Grammar School, Layla Calme of the North East Comprehensive School, and Kaymaya Bertrand of the Convent High School.

In addition, Christie-Ann Charles of the Goodwill Secondary School,  Niquelle Edwards of the Portsmouth Secondary School, Rochelle Graham of the Isiah Thomas Secondary School and Shakira Bramble of the Pierre Charles Secondary School will also contest for the title.

Mernel Christmas of the Isaiah Thomas Secondary captured the 2012 title of Miss Teen Dominica. Nichole Rodriguez  of the same school took home the title in 2011.

The show is expected to take place on February 3 at Carnival City from 5:00 pm.

    Best luck to all the contestants!
    Rochelle Graham – You r of the purest of hearts. I always remark that I can only WISH to be as lucky to have a teenage daughter as obedient and dedicated to church, school, her community, and being a caring big sister as you are. You are 1 of a kind, a loving child, a wise and outspoken leader, and an all-around awesome chic! If the other contestants are ANYTHING like you, this is going to be a serious competition! Your mom has done a MAGNIFICENT job raising you! I’m headed to the show right now with prayers of seeing you take that crown! Good luck Lil’ Mama!

    I saw photos of these girls at the opening, and this flyer does absolutely no justice to the beauty of these young women. The organizers must do a much better job at marketing this show!!

    Rochelle Graham looks most natural, beautiful smile. She is also the one here who looks most like a teen, the other young ladies have too make makeup resulting in them looking much older than their ages.

      8-O 8-O PAY LA!… TEBEH!
      go back to your dictionary and see what NATURAL MEAN! smh at some of all you!!.. Just because you rooting for one doesn’t mean you have to make a fool of yourself with your nonsense comment.. CLEARLY you know NOTHING about beauty and make up. I’m rooting for LIZANNE ROACH ALLLLL THE WAY..however, based on this weird photos that the organizers decided to choose, Ms. Bertrand of CHS is the only person I see looking natural there with her NATURAL HAIR.. … anyways..

      GO LIZANNE ROACH!!! I know you going to take it all! no doubt about that!

      The PSS rep needs to up her public speaking if she is to stand a chance. I watched the interview on Marpin, and from what I saw, as of now she doesnt have what it takes to take it home. It’s not just about a pretty face u know… CHS all the way!

      • For Sure
        January 28, 2013

        If you are so sure about CHS why try to intimidate PSS. That will not work. Go PSS we always leave the best part of us for last. We will meet them on the day of the pageant.
