Shakainah Pompier Arrindell

People's Choice Award

1.What is the funniest thing you remember as a child?
I’m from the island of St. Maarten. After the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, I moved to North Carolina for school. In North Carolina, I met welcoming people and experienced new things. For that I'm forever grateful. So, North Carolina would be where I would like to live one day.

2.What is the one piece of clothing you wish you owned?
Traveling with my family is always funny! Within five minutes of boarding the airplane, I know my aunt will fall asleep with her mouth wide open. It’s also hilarious my siblings fight over who gets to sit next to our Mom.

3.What season of the year is your favorite and why?
By building a youth wing of the St. Maarten Alzheimer’s Foundation, my objective is to bring awareness and education of Alzheimer’s to my peers. My grandmother is in the advanced stages of this terminal illness, and through this foundation we can support one another as our loved ones’ battle Alzheimer’s.

4.What is your favorite movie?
Beauty is defined as qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses. In my viewpoint, beauty should not be judged by the outside appearance, but from within. In the end, your personality and character, with attributes like loyalty, intelligence, compassion and humbleness; will carry you further in life.
