Meet the faces of Yellow Pages

A young mum from George Town will shoot to fame after she was picked to feature on the front of the new telephone directories.

Stephanie Espeut, 25 along with 27-year-old Anthony Chin were chosen to appear on the cover after a national competition by Yellow Pages.

For Stephanie, it long overdue recognition after years working as a model finally paid off. She was runner-up in Miss Cayman five years ago was also pipped to the top spot in Miss Teen Cayman in 2002.

She said: “I saw the ad on Facebook and went ahead and sent in some pictures that I recently took. Then they called me in January and said I was a finalist and they wanted to interview me.

“My interview lasted between 20 and 30 minutes. They had a couple of giggles – I had them laughing quite a bit. It took a week and then they told me I was the winner for the Female category.

“I like being involved in the community, anything connected with our heritage and culture,” Ms Espeut said.

Anthony added: “It was a friend who told me to try out for it. I was kind of shy at first but eventually I just gave in and entered the competition.

“I just got into modeling late last year and this will be my third photo-shoot. Right now my main goal is to become a track & field coach and eventually I want to go and study for that. Right now I am with the Trinity Performance Track Club.”

Eileen Keens, Marketing Manager for Global Directories who publish Yellow Pages here said: “I think they both have an amazing character. Anthony is amazing- he is a PE teacher and in his free time he coaches track & field kids.

“Stephanie is so mature, she’s got a young daughter and has decided to take some time off and spend some quality time with her, but will soon return to the workforce and wants to be in a management position to better provide for her daughter. That’s her main goal in life.

The photo-shoot took place at Grand Old House. Creative Director Jason Inasi said:  “What we are doing is creating an intimate restaurant scene where we are going to have a couple who have located the perfect restaurant via the Yellow Pages –they’re finding and discovering all the best parts of the Cayman Islands and this is going to be the shot which captures that moment.”
