Representing Trinidad and Tobago on an international stage has been my dream for almost two decades, and following in the footsteps of iconic Trinbagonian women such as Giselle La Ronde-West and Wendy Fitzwilliam is a humbling opportunity and a great responsibility that I undertake with great pride. Every challenge and sacrifice has been worth it, and I have to sincerely thank the franchise holder, Jenny Douglas, and her team for the experience.”
