COLE BAY–Miss Mature Queen 2016 Norrisa Anatol organised a workshop for all 2017 delegates taking part in Posh Productions’ Queen Pageants at Carl and Son’s Conference Room in Cole Bay on Saturday, March 4.
The workshop entitled, “Queen Whip 2017,” started at 8:00am and ended at 5:00pm during which Anatol gathered the island’s finest professionals in their respective fields to share much-needed tips with the delegates in preparation for the pageants.
The topics covered at the workshop included public speaking, posture and walk, health and fitness, dressing, table etiquette, photography, community service and makeup application. Present at this event were 13 of the 19 delegates, who expressed extreme excitement and gratitude to Anatol for organising this event.
Master of Ceremonies Charles Rollan kept the delegates entertained during his unexpected yet energetic introductions of each presenter. The presenters, who contributed their time and service at no cost, were Amanda Vital-Bedminister, Ardwell Irion, Shirma France, D’Shnay Mathew-York, Timia Jones, Kerwan Celestine, Ananda Zaandam and Elisia Lake.
The conference room was filled with Kharisha Seymour-Foeken’s vibrant makeup products, which gave the delegates an opportunity to purchase and exchange information.
“I have been planning this workshop for the past two months and I am happy that the delegates were satisfied and open to accept the advice and positive criticism given,” Anatol stated.
At the end of the workshop, delegates received words of encouragement from Saint Martin’s 2017-2018 Miss Teen Carnival and Senior Queens Tasyanna Clifton and Shaïna Galvani, and St. Maarten’s 2016-2017 Miss Junior Carnival and Mature Queens Trinity Christina and Norrisa Anatol.
The queens also shared their personal experiences as past delegates and the importance of remaining focussed. The delegates were then presented with certificates of participation and goody bags filled with cosmetics sponsored by Manrique Capriles.
“Though I only planned to conduct this workshop during my reign, I have considered making this an annual event because of the impact it has made on the delegates who attended,” Anatol said. “I would like to thank Carl and Son’s for providing the facilities to conduct this workshop, providing breakfast and lunch for all attendees.
“A heartfelt appreciation to Manrique Capriles for sponsoring the goody bags and Kharisha Seymour-Foeken for displaying her makeup products. Thank you to all presenters for sharing fundamental tips to the delegates, Charles Rollan for accepting the task of being Master of Ceremonies and Nick Charles for capturing priceless images at Queen Whip 2017.”
