In Caribbean news. Miss Teen Caribbean UK is a new social enterprise created for girls aged 13-17 years from the Caribbean or of Caribbean and mixed heritage residing in the UK.

It was created to facilitate the demands presented by many of the parents, families, friends and High Commissioners in the UK Caribbean diaspora for more youth involvement.

The contest was created to be a positive and confidence-building experience for young girls and to provide a platform to showcase excellence in education, talent and cultural awareness.
