On Tuesday, July 26, 2016, the Commissioner of Culture, Rolando Wilson, met with the three Miss Dutch Caribbean contestants, Miss St. Maarten Diandra Marlin, Miss Saba Natalia Peterson and Miss St. Eustatius Sherees Timber, in the Courtroom of the Government Administration Building.
The three contestants spoke with Commissioner Wilson about their educational goals.
Miss St. Eustatius was studying International Business in the Netherlands but will be changing her study to Creative Psychology, using tools like dance and drama in order to help children.
Miss St. Maarten will begin her studies in January in Liberal Studies with a minor in Psychology. She has a keen interest for homeless and less fortunate children and helps them in her spare time.
Miss Saba has recently completed her Secondary Education and after working on Saba for a year, she will be furthering her studies in the Educational Domain, with the intention of becoming an English teacher. She is a story teller and likes to write her own stories. She hopes to continue to pursue this interest during her studies abroad.
Commissioner Wilson was very impressed with the contestants and their personal goals. He looks forward to hearing more from them during their many activities on Saba.
