Miss Teen St. Maarten International®

Shakainah Pompier Arrindell

1.What is the funniest thing you believed 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 talent you wish you had?
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.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
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 the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
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.
