Preparations underway for Miss Turks and Caicos Universe 2013 pageant
Published on January 30, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Competition for the Miss Turks and Caicos Universe 2013 has begun. After assessing applications and interviews, the Miss Turks and Caicos Universe Beauty Organization (MTCUBO) has arrived at a shortlist of seven beauties who will contest the coveted title and represent the TCI at the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant. Ranging from ages 19 to 26, the contestants describe themselves as beautiful, intelligent, sociable, and having the determination to become a beauty ambassador.

The seven beauties participated in an exciting weekend. First, on Saturday, the official Miss Turks and Caicos Universe photo shoot took place at the Regent Palms Resort on Providenciales. The young, sophisticated, and fabulous ladies were all adorned in swimwear by Saint George Fashion House (SGFH) and beautifully accessorized by Tremm Jocale, ready for the camera crew.

According to president Kazz Forbes, the MTCUBO encourages the development of cultural awareness, talent and creativity in some of Turks and Caicos’ most beautiful women.

“There are great benefits to be gained from the pageant experience, other than winning prizes. It helps with people skills and helps to boost confidence. The official photo shoot and the start of training sessions is just the beginning. We’re really excited about this year’s pageant. Preparations are already under way to make it an electrifying and memorable pageant.” said Forbes.

The training and mentoring of the delegates also started on Sunday, under the guidance of Wenieka Ewing, coaching and training officer, MTCUBO. Ewing, a former Miss Turks and Caicos Universe, said, “Training and coaching are key elements. It is our goal to not only create a Miss Turks and Caicos Beauty Queen, but a Miss Universe. We want the best beauty ambassador to represent us on the international scene.”

Unveiling of the beauties will take place 10:00am - 12:00pm, February 11, at the MTCUBO ‘Meet the Press’ event at Beaches TCI Resort Villages and Spa.

In the lead up to the coronation of the new Miss Turks and Caicos Universe, there will be a number of promotional and community events, cocktail parties and appearances to showcase the contestants.
