Farrah is a hardworking, confident and outgoing person. She has recently attained her Bachelors of Science in Biology and looks forward to starting her new career in research.
Farrah has a passion for education and believes that education should be accessible for all, no matter their economic status or gender. She is in support of the VSO ICS Education program as she has experienced first hand the positive outcome this programme has on children in countries less fortunate than our own.
Throughout her journey as a finalist she has shown that she is innovative and creative - creating Instagram videos that show off her Caribbean culture and educated people about her islands of Turks and Caicos. She has shown determination and passion by organising a sponsored 10K walk around London in aid of her charity VSO ICS and also a local school in the Turks and Caicos Islands, raising £1000. She also held a rounders competition in her area to help raise funds for this initiative. Farrah has embraced the ethos of the pageant which is to positively promote the Caribbean by involving herself in interviews, raising awareness of the pageant and participating other pageant campaigns.
As your Miss Caribbean UK, Farrah aims to use the platform to further promote the pageant and her islands Turks and Caicos. She will set up her own organisation/charity which helps families with buying school supplies for their children. She will be engaging with the education system in the Turks and Caicos Islands, visiting schools to promote the importance of education to young people.
Farrah is a resilient young lady who has demonstrated through perseverance and discipline one can achieve their goals.
