Diversity Is Beautiful!!

Daily, women all over the world bring to us an aura that can bring a smile to any man’s face. When I walk down the streets, I see women of every race and culture showcasing their individual sense of fashion. It’s obvious that in a megalopolis like New York City, diversity is the key to beauty.

As a child growing up in the small village of St. Joseph, one thing that was clear was that women always captured the attention from everyone who passed them by. The women from my home islands are born with a humor, grace and presence that can charm the heart of any man, anywhere in the world. And the women here represent every mix, race, nationality possible on the planet….African, Indian, Caucasian, Syrian…the list is endless.

Just look at the history at the Miss World and Miss Universe competitions….it speaks for itself. Each year, the country always sends a diverse, exotic beauty that keeps the crowds begging for more.

From Trinidad and Tobago the First black Miss Universe 1977 Janelle Commissiong.

And today at the Olympics, our very own Kelly-Ann Kaylene Baptiste is making us proud in London as I type.
So love to all women, especially my sisters in Trinidad and Tobago. We can't live without you, literally!
