“In a world that wants women to whisper, I choose to yell.” Luvvie Ajayi

On December 16th, 2007, that is exactly how Brenna Paul made her debut into the world. As the second of a pair of twins, Brenna epitomizes this quote indiscriminately. She is vivacious, ambitious, and fearless.

Brenna is no stranger to academic achievement and honors. She has produced elite levels of work since matriculating at the Cayon High School and has attained an honor roll certificate every term. Additionally, she is a part of the school’s choir, environmental club, netball team as well as a part-time athlete for her beloved Blue House Thunder.

Brenna is just as meticulous in her personal life as she is in her academic life. Her hobbies include dancing and singing, both of which she does in church. What’s more, Brenna co-owns a business with her twin sister named B&B’s Berrylicious Bakery which was established in 2018. Moreover, Brenna recently became a certified youth referee for the St. Kitts-Nevis Football Association.

If all of that was not impressive enough, she intends to sit CSEC exams for both ‘Mathematics’ and ‘English A’ next May-June 2023. This is her first step in realizing her ultimate goal of becoming a pediatric surgeon.

When asked what advice she would give to her peers, Brenna readily recites her personal motto: “Don’t let anyone’s expectations be higher than yours for yourself.”

Ladies and gentlemen; boys and girls, prepare to be stunned by Brenna Paul, Ms. Cayon High School 2022. If you would like Breanna to win the Most Popular Contestant Online Award, show her some.

Queen City Nevis welcomed an heir to its throne, on September 19th 2006, in the person of Hadassah Daniel. This 16-year-old encapsulates the true definition of vibrancy and talent. Her vivacious personality illuminates the darkest of rooms. 

Currently, Hadassah is a 5th-form student at the Gingerland Secondary School, the home of the Panthers. She aspires to successfully complete eight CSEC subjects. At the end of her tenure, Hadassah wishes to embark on a journey of becoming an elite performer.

Whilst prioritizing her academics, Hadassah manages to channel her love for dance and drama. This is evident as she has been a mascot and cheerleader for her school. She strongly believes in getting involved in extra-curricular activities, as she participates as a dancer in many school and community programs. Hadassah holds the virtue of determination at its highest degree and never turns down a challenge.

Hadassah Daniel gracefully entered the world of pageantry in 2018 as a part of our Culturama Festival’s Mr. and Miss. Talented Youth Pageant. Here, she captured the 1st runner up position. As a strong willed and positive individual, Hadassah pounced at the opportunity and is elated to be an ambassador in this year’s Ms. Talented Teen Pageant for St Kitts- Nevis National Carnival. She wishes to use this opportunity to empower and be a positive role model for other young girls who are working towards achieving their dreams even in the midst of adversities.
