DOMINICAN REPUBLIC-SINT MAARTEN - Sint Maarten’s reigning Junior Carnival Queen Laetitia “TC” Cozier did her country, family and supporters proud by capturing the title of Miss Mini Modelo Caribe International pageant in Santo Domingo on Saturday night. It is the first time in years that a St. Maarten Carnival Queen of any age group has brought a regional crown back home.
The event was part of part of that country’s Festival del Talento y la Belleza Nacional. According to Aishira Cicilia, pageant coordinator for the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF), Laetitia and her chaperones worked hard to prepare her for the pageant and to give her a good experience in Santo Domingo.
“Congrats to Laetitia her mom Michelene Wilson, Co-Chaperone Charissa Gumbs and everyone who made it possible. We (SCDF) are very proud of TC,” Cicilia said. The SCDF will also be sending its Senior Carnival Queen and Miss St. Maarten Bria Sorton to compete in Nevis in August as part of the Culturama festivities there. (Contributed by the SCDF)
