I am Shauntae Ashleigh Miller, a 25 year old grad student with only a semester left before obtaining a Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling Mental Health.
Rooted in identity and empowerment, I decided to compete in pageants because it is synonymous with globalization and evolution that promotes a bold, unique and unapologetically in control woman. A woman like me!
From a young age I decided to take control of my life, my future and my destiny. Go after what I want and do things in a way that helps me to be able to help others. In keeping with that, and coming from an athletic family, I started an athletics club which promotes health, fitness and friendly competition for kids from the ages of 5 to 10 years old. Teaching them the importance of sacrifice, focus and determination, being well rounded student athletes and positive and productive young people of society.
As a young woman of the world, I have taken on the task of competing for the title of Miss Intercontinental 2018. It is with the greatest pleasure and gratitude that I am able to go after this dream with the support of my family and country … to represent my beautiful 700 islands and cays of sun, sand, beaches and amazing people. To wear my country’s name across my chest, be an example of what a positive and successful young Bahamian woman is like and to say with pride … BAHAMAS!
Where every smile shines like it’s kissed by the sun and worries are washed away onto the sands of our beautiful beaches, I am 25 year old Shauntae Miller – Miss Bahamas! Salamat Po!
