What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing the most?
I am definitely a watersports enthusiast. I love to wakeboard, scuba dive and sail. I also really enjoy working with children as a mentor. I enjoy helping out with everything from academics to everyday issues they may be facing.
Name one person other than your parents who has had the most influence on your life. Why?
Sandra Van der Bol, inspirational speaker, retired teacher, mentor and family friend, has been an inspiration and has had the most influence on me outside of my mother. She has counseled and consoled me through some of the most difficult times of my life. Through her wisdom, warm spirit and generosity she has been a role model to me and my siblings. She has provided an example for me to aspire to be.
What is your career ambition and what are you doing or plan to do to accomplish that goal?
Once I give up the title of Miss Cayman Islands 2006 I will pursue a career in elementary education. Every opportunity that I receive to work with children I have taken it. Whether it be in the community church or everyday life I have always tried to do something with children.
Describe where you were raised and what your childhood was like.
I was raised on a tropical island with white sandy beaches and deep Blue waters; paradise. I lived with my mother and father and two siblings in a tiny, two-bedroom wooden house. Despite the lack of material surroundings, my brother, sister and I had by far the greatest childhood ever. Filled with adventure like exploring the forest - well, the neighbor's yard seemed like a forest - swimming in the beautiful ocean accross the street or walking to Pecky's - the neighborhood corner store - to buy patties and candies with our savings, it was nothing shy of amazing.
What makes you unique and different from the other contestants?
I am different and unique from the other contestants because of my personality. I am very down-to-earth and very grounded. I am a go-getter and an achiever, believing that if I give it my all I can achieve anything I set my mind to. I am balanced and believe it is important to spend time with people I love. I love to have fun and enjoy a good hearty laugh more than anything.
