Delegates from throughout the Caribbean are now on Nevis for the 2012 Miss Caribbean Culture and were hosted to a welcome cocktail party at the Oualie Beach Hotel, on Saturday evening, where they were also able to meet top pageant officials and government leaders.
This year the Dominican Republic will be participating for the first time with Suzan Castano as the representative. The other delegates include, Louise Victor of St. Lucia- Jamilah Forde-Barbados, Marvia Lawrence-Curacao, Annaisha King-Trinidad & Tobago, Trevicia Adams-St. Kitts, Ashley Massiah-St. Croix, Santanyo Mills-Nevis and Marejah Smith of Anguilla.
In 2011, the pageant was won by St. Lucia’s Oneka McCoy.
