Miss Teen St. Maarten International®

Shakainah Pompier Arrindell

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Im 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.

What according to you is a true friend?
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. Its also hilarious my siblings fight over who gets to sit next to our Mom.

How do you handle criticism?
By building a youth wing of the St. Maarten Alzheimers Foundation, my objective is to bring awareness and education of Alzheimers 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 Alzheimers.

When was the last time you tried something new?
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.
