Age: 24

FUN FACTS ABOUT YOU

  • I was very young when I had my first taste of turtle meat. I have a vivid memory of sitting in my grandfather's house in Cayman Brac. I've been a turtle meat fan ever since. I am most certainly an advocate for our local food. I am especially a fish lover, steamed, fried, I will eat it!

  • One of my most embarrassing moments involved the governor (Stuart Jack at the time) in the year 2006. It was at a Junior Achievement presentation, I was put on the spot to speak and I completely froze and could not say a word. Needless to say, I have slowly improved on my impromptu speaking and I can now look back at this and laugh.

  • I always loved to experiment with different hairstyles and hair colors. I shaved my hair when I was in university because I wanted to feel more comfortable with my facial features. I found that I would sometimes hide behind my long hair but with short hair I was forced to love my features. I began to embrace how God created me.
