Bounty Rum, spon­sor for St Lu­cia Car­ni­val 2016, is elated to be the spon­sor of car­ni­val queen con­tes­tant Sheris Paul. Af­ter be­ing sashed as ‘Miss Bounty' at a cer­e­mony held at San­dals Hal­cyon Beach Re­sort, Miss Sheris Paul is ex­cited and ready to do her best at this year's stag­ing of the event.

This pres­ti­gious na­tional queen pageant is ex­pected to serve as a plat­form which cel­e­brates th­ese eight ex­tra­or­di­nary young ladies - all very tal­ented and grace­ful - at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre on Satur­day, July 2nd, 2016.

At a young age, Sheris em­braced train­ing in dance and drama, af­ford­ing her the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop an im­mense pas­sion for the stage. Hav­ing par­tic­i­pated in Miss In­de­pen­dence Pageant 2015 and Miss Queen of Gros Islet, her love for pageants has pro­gressed and she in­tends to fur­ther her per­sonal de­vel­op­ment by way of the stage and pageantry.

Will Du­rant once said, “We are what we re­peat­edly do; ex­cel­lence is then not an act but a habit”, words Sheris lives by and uses as her daily mantra. As a youth with pur­pose, Sheris is a stu­dent at Mon­roe Col­lege study­ing Busi­ness Man­age­ment with as­pi­ra­tions of ul­ti­mately be­ing a Mar­ket­ing Spe­cial­ist. She in­tends to con­nect with young women like her to en­cour­age and em­power them to achieve their ca­reer goals. Full of po­ten­tial and hope for the fu­ture, Sheris has promised Bounty that she will def­i­nitely 'Be the Spirit of St Lu­cia Car­ni­val' and is ready to daz­zle the au­di­ence as she car­ries the Bounty Rum brand with pride and joy.

Bounty Rum brand man­ager Tony Polius said: “Hav­ing such a well-rounded, in­tel­li­gent and fo­cused young lady who is no stranger to the stage, will­ing to take bold steps in ad­vanc­ing her­self, I was happy to have branded her as Miss Bounty for Car­ni­val.”

Go out and sup­port the eight beau­ti­ful ladies at this year's pageant as it prom­ises to be ex­cit­ing.
