Contestants for the Carnival Princess 2011 and Miss Teen Dominica 2011 shows have been urged to use their experiences in pageants as avenues to better their characters and skills.
Yesterday, the Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company and Rotaract Club of Roseau officially introduced the young ladies to the public during a special ceremony at the Fort Young Hotel.
Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence, who spoke at the ceremony, said, “If you don’t win remember you can always use the experience of the event to go on to better yourself in which ever field or endeavor you pursue.”
