Miss St.Lucia- Shartoya Baptiste, 17. Hailing from the picturesque isle of Saint Lucia, I am 17 year old Shartoya Rochelle Jn. Baptiste, a vibrant, enthusiastic and talented self-driven individual who recently graduated from the St. Josephs Convent and is currently a first year student at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College pursuing a degree in Hospitality Studies. Through a degree in Hospitality Studies I hope to further my career in Events/Entertainment Management within the tourism industry. In my spare time I engage positively in dance, modelling, interior decorating and hanging out with friends.
My passion is with the performing arts with special interest in dance. I am currently a member of the Silver Shadow Performing Arts Academy as well as a member of the Silhouette Fashion House Modelling Agency. My passion and love of the performing arts have resulted in me being featured as a soloist in the Silver Shadow dance production 2012“Dance Mirage” and my dance class of which I am the dance captain won the St. Lucia National Arts Festival Junior Dance Award 2012. Due to these achievements I was selected to be part of the delegation to represent my simply beautiful island of St. Lucia at the Rhythm and Motion Festival 2012 in Trinidad & Tobago.
