Bonzour to all the continents of the world from the Seychelles Islands! An island girl coming from a beautiful kaleidoscope of cultures, I am as diverse as my people and see the world in all its splendid colours. Life is meant to be experienced and enjoyed. We live and we learn, we laugh and we cry. Moments are meant to be cherished and memories created. During my Miss Intercontinental journey, I am willing and able to give my best in all moments and hope to have the privilege to look back one day to say I gave the best of me in this lifetime. At 27 years of age, I currently hold an ACCA Diploma in Accounting and Business and work as a Senior Audit Executive at ACM and Associates; a professional firm offering assurance services. Whilst working full-time, I am actively working towards finishing my ACCA studies and becoming an Affiliate member, as well as pursuing a Bachelors’ Degree in Applied Accounting from the Oxford Brookes University. When I am not busy preparing financial statements, I enjoy socialising, singing and attending weekly dance classes. Dance has been a passion of mine since I have been a child. Whatever emotion you harbor can be expressed through movement and can bring about unity. Moreover, I have recently broadened my creativity by bringing to life animated characters through arts & crafts for children’s party décor and mementos. There’s nothing more precious than a child’s smile, which is why I have been volunteering with the Seychelles National Library to assist with reading and arts & crafts sessions with children of all ages at reading centers in different districts. One way of giving back to the community is doing something I love, which is bringing a smile to a child’s face. I am a firm believer that coming from an island developing state, whilst small, Seychelles has much to offer the world!
