Child Beauty Queen and Brownie of The Year Youngest Recipients Of Beauties At Brunch Awards Celebrating 50 Years Women’s Suffrage Movement
By Arthia Nixon, The Ambassador Agency for Beauties At Brunch
At age six, a time when many youngsters are still trying to figure out two plus two, Lauryn Rolle was following in her mother’s footsteps as a successful model and was the owner of Drama Queens, Inc., a company she started as a result of being involved with Creative Wealth’s youth program. At five, actress and model Syngular Journee Brown was crowned Miss Petite Bahamas. Both youngsters graced the cover of the 2012 telephone directory and now they are the slated to be junior recipients of the Beauties at Brunch Awards Ceremony.
Under the patronage of media mogul Dr. Debbie Bartlett and hosted by Phyllis Albury-Garraway, the event, set for October 14, at the Nassau Beach Hotel, will celebrate 50 years of the Suffrage Movement in The Bahamas. Highlights will include performances by Bahamian-born international recording artist Julien Believe, former Miss Bahamas Richa Sands, a Cia Monet fashion show featuring designer labels worn by local models and a riveting performance by dancer diva Sonovia Williams. Part proceeds of the event will benefit the Bahamas Crisis Center.
“We do have a list of women who will be honored but we thought to celebrate Syngular and Lauryn for their accomplishments at age seven and 10 respectively because we are also celebrating National Youth Month,” said event founder/organizer and Cia Monet CEO Patricia Chatti. “Both young ladies have already been active in their careers for more than half their lives and we want to empower other girls in The Bahamas to push forward and start sooner than later to achieve their goals.”
Lauryn is the oldest child of Pia and Herman Rolle. She is trained as a dancer and exceptional scholar who will attend boarding school in Canada after her studies at St. Thomas Moore and St. Augustine’s College are complete. Lauryn participates in track and field, drama, choir and plans to become a marine biologist.
Syngular Journee began voicing commercials for local radio at age two and is now seen in several films and commercials including one for Atlantis directed by Brett Ratnor of the Rush Hour films starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. She is the daughter of Patricia Chatti.
