Teen Queen visits MLK 


Dutch Quarter, Sint Maarten — The Miss Telcell Carnival Teen Queen Shakainah Arrindell-Pompier visited the Group 7 students of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Primary School on Wednesday morning.

The young and energetic Queen gave the students a motivational talk and encouraged them to pursue their life goals.

“Do not let your current circumstances define you such a being in a single parent family or not knowing right now what you want to study. Your still young and there are endless opportunities for you to grab once you remain focused,” said Ms. Arrindell-Pompier.

The students were able to ask her questions about her reign, her community projects, her school career and her family life being able to balance it all as the reigning teen queen.

“It’s time we inspire our students with our local icons and our Teen Queen is the perfect role model for them,” Stuart Johnson School Manager of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Primary School said.  “I am extremely proud of our Teen Queen and have no doubt she will excel at the upcoming pageants she has aboard with the support of our country,” Johnson added.

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Primary School is a public education school located in the district of Dutch Quarter.
