Teen upset over pageant
REIGNING MISS TEEN BARBADOS Aaleah Harris and her mother have complained of a harrowing experience representing the island during the recently concluded Miss Teen Universe International Pageant in Costa Rica.
And they are putting the blame squarely on the shoulders of local pageant organiser and director of Sparkles International, Clairmonte Grazette.
Harris and her mother, Annette Harris, who acted as chaperone, left Barbados to join the other contestants in the pageant from February 23 to March 2.
The two told the DAILY NATION a problem arose as a result of Grazette having not paid the chaperone fee for Harris to accompany her daughter, who ended up being pulled from the show by the organisers.
