According to the Caribbean Tourism Organization, 15-year-old Raeann Angeline Matute-Scott will represent the Cayman Islands at the Cayman Islands Regional Tourism Youth Congress next week.
The Youth Congress, which coincides with Caribbean Aviation Day (which is held on September 14 and is organized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA)), is expected to feature Ms Matute-Scott, as well as young other parts of the Caribbean. At the Youth Congress, it is expected that they will debate regional tourism issues and discuss how to stimulate “greater awareness and enthusiasm for tourism among the youth of our Caribbean communities”.
Commenting on her portrayal for Cayman, Ms. Matute-Scott, who attends Layman E. Scott Sr. High School, said:
I look forward to representing our islands well and having constructive discussions with my fellow Ministers and Youth Tourism Commissioners at the 2022 Regional Youth Tourism Congress.
Moreover, I am grateful to God for this amazing opportunity, he has blessed me abundantly. Many thanks to my family, teachers and peers who have supported and coached me through this journey so far.
