While in Vegas she also met with the current Miss Universe as well as Miss USA and Miss Teen USA. “Attending a competition on this large a scale has really hit home – it has made me realize the importance and value of training and preparation,” Alexander said.

Attending the exclusive ‘True Beauty’ event, a Miss Universe training workshop, Miss Cayman had the chance to meet with renowned Miss Universe runway coach Lu Sierra and famous pageant coach Joey Galon. She was also photographed by world famous photographer Fadil Berisha and received styling advice from Robin Ross Flemming, owner of Lacasahermosa.

“These past few months have been filled with fantastic training opportunities for me. One of my best moments was meeting motivation speaker Dale Smith Thomas, who gave me the inspiration and motivation to forge ahead. The events also gave me a greater appreciation for the mental and physical strength it takes to compete at an international level, as I experienced in the Miss World Pageant,” Miss Cayman added.

Back home local photographers Patrick Broderick, David Goddard and Luis Vallecillo have been helping to build Alexander’s portfolio in time for the Miss Universe Pageant.
