200de1_f467ad6778934981b96d99a1a95992f1_jpg_srb_p_600_414_75_22_0_50_1_20_0Nicoya Henry, 20, is currently repping the 268 (translation: representing Antigua and Barbuda) in the Caribbean Next Top Model. Wishing her lots of opportunities and personal and career growth on this journey. If you’re in Antigua and Barbuda, you can catch it Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Channel 45. Official CNTM website.


Bigging up the girls of AGHS, Antigua’s team to the Caribbean Secondary Schools’ Drama Festival in Trinidad & Tobago. They’ll be performing Zahra Airall’s The Forgotten. Wishing them luck.


Just a reminder that the Independence Visual Arts Exhibition wraps at the end of this week (I believe that if you’re in Antigua and Barbuda you have one more day to catch it). It’s at the Multipurpose Centre and includes the work of local artists like Emile Hill, X-Sapphair King, Glenroy Aaron, and others, as well as some of our talented artisans.

Check it out. And learn from my mistake, go before 5 p.m.
