Shanna Moes represents SXM!

DSC07550~ Reina Mundial Del Oro 2015 ~

Veteran pageant contender Shanna Moes will be representing Sint Maarten in the "Reina Mundial Del Oro 2015" international beauty pageant. Her platform will focus on Sint Maarten's efforts towards preserving our environment.

Shanna remains committed towards the promotion and marketing of Sint Maarten as one of the islands that is on the forefront of tourism, hospitality, cuisine and environmental impact. To further strengthen the promotion of Sint Maarten, she will be taking on the challenge of competing in the "Reina Mundial Del Oro 2015" pageant to be held in Bayahibe, La Romana, in the Dominican Republic, from October 11 to 18, 2015.

"Reina Mundial Del Oro" translates into "World Gold Queen". This is an international beauty pageant unlike any other, as it focuses less on beauty and more on emphasizing the intellectual, cultural, social and artistic qualities of a woman.

Shanna has in the past competed in several international and local pageants, proving her knowledge, experience and unwavering passion to this cause. In 2009, she competed in her first pageant – Miss Overijssel. This was the provincial pageant for preliminary to Miss Universe Holland, where she placed 1st runner up, against all veteran participants. Also in 2009, she competed in the biggest national pageant in the Netherlands – Miss Nederland (previously known as Miss Nederland Universe), where she placed in the top 6th percentile against 300 other contestants from across the Netherlands.

In 2010, after returning home from completing her studies, she competed in "Miss Tropic Beauty" (previously known as Miss Hawaiian Tropic) and became Miss Sint Maarten Tropic Beauty, where she promoted the island through several photoshoots and magazine covers.

In 2011, she competed in the Miss Sunset Bikini contest and walked away with the 1st place prize as well as best costume and best stage presence. In 2014, she was cast as the main star in Orange Grove's video for the catchy single "Easy love" – this single and video went on to claim international recognition in Europe as well as over 70,000 hits on YouTube. Shanna has been on the cover of the Destination magazine for Sint Maarten & the USVI as well as the cover of Insel Air's in-flight magazine.

Extensive planning has already gone towards commitment to this pageant and in order to complete her goal and budgetary requirements, she will require assistance from the community. There are customized sponsor packages available for everyone; no amount of assistance is too small. Explained in the sponsor packages are branding and promotion opportunities for each company or organization that chooses to sponsor for this representative. The deadline for all sponsorships is September 1, as everything for the pageant must be paid in full by September 10.

This international event will increase Sint Maarten's visibility and promotion, the sponsor's dedication to the environment, and the level of environmental awareness Sint Maarten has, that may have not been possible to view, if it were in a different setting.

Several sponsorship requests have gone unanswered due to extended budgets; however, momentum has not failed. As a community, we must come together to support our own in the pursuit of goals that will influence our island's positive future. Shanna is genuinely looking forward to representing her island, both professionally and passionately, as she has acquired a team to aid her in the positive promotion of the island. As soon as this pageant is over, she will begin to work hard toward her aspiration to represent St. Maarten in the 2016 Miss Universe Pageant.
