World Class Beauty Queens Magazine would like to welcome amazing Queen and a role model Shandy Scott Ms. United Nations World 2016.
Name : Shandy Scott
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do pageant? :
Shandy: I have a daughter and I have spoken to many girls and young women who are struggling with low self-esteem and have seen and worked in communities where people have lost hope and living in poverty. Pageant is my way of inspiring others by using my title to bring change and meaning into their lives.
Shandy: Pageants are a source of empowerment, character building and platform for restoring hope in people’s lives.
Shandy: My motivation to make a difference in the world, my passion for volunteering, care for the less fortunate, my sincere love and kindness for all people and my appreciation for life.
Shandy: I grew up in a rural community and there are many people who are suffering because of the lack of support and opportunity to excel. Volunteering is tool to empower people and communities. There are so many people whose lives can change just from one simple act of kindness. Volunteering is important because it makes the world a better place by restoring hope in humanity.
Shandy: My dress was a beautiful silhouette emerald green dress with sparkles. It was sourced at Emanuel’s Boutique in Kingston, Jamaica. It complemented my style well and was the perfect color dress for the crown I won on the night at the International Finals.
Shandy: I did not apply any special secret technique. I sincerely presented my true self to the judges and gave an honest and friendly response to all the questions the judges put to me. I was grateful for the opportunity and in that moment of gratefulness; it helped me not to be nervous but thankful. I was very comfortable with the judges; they were friendly and most respectful.
Shandy: Pageant walk and poise has now become a part of me. I practice my pageant walk each day in my regular everyday activities; even when I am not conscious of it, I am doing it. Since being in China, I have walked at the Peking University Fashion Show in Beijing and this helped me to practice my walk on stage.
Shandy: Being a mother to a daughter is what motivates me to keep my esteem and standards high. Being an example to my daughter in my attitude and behavior is my way of teaching her to overcome shyness and embrace life.
Shandy: The Ms. United Nations World crown symbolizes my demonstration of love for the less fortunate and my continued desire and hard work to change lives and restore hope. The crown represents my heart; beauty, charity, love, hope and desire for peace.
Shandy: Currently, I am completing my master’s degree in China. Since being in China, I have served as a Cultural Ambassador for my country. I have showcased Jamaica’s culture at various events and volunteered teaching English to poor Chinese students in rural provinces. As a volunteer with British Council China Inspiring Women, I plan to travel to several schools in Beijing to share my experiences and have motivational sessions with young women to improve their self-esteem and guide them on their career path. On my return to Jamaica, I will continue my work with Women Incorporated to raise awareness on the issue of domestic violence and empower victims of domestic violence and their children to heal and live a better life.
Shandy: My pursuits in life are not for personal accomplishment; it is for my daughter, my community and every young girl struggling with low self-esteem and feeling broken. I live my life in a way to make the life of someone else better by leading the way. I want my legacy to be a source of motivation to young people from rural communities and poor homes to aspire for the best at all times and know that anything is possible with determination, prayer and faith. It is my desire to write my memoir; this will allow me to
share my story and inspire hope for future generations.
Shandy: The United Nations Pageant has improved my confidence and increased my determination to help others by giving me an image and platform to work with. I have met and worked with many beautiful people from different cultures and races all across the world that are also making a difference in the world. With the help of the United Nations Pageant, I also had the privilege of visiting Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; the most beautiful and luxurious country in the world! Competing in the United Nations Pageant was one of the most rewarding experience and accomplishment in my life. I
