Each day, starting Monday, June 17, 2013, St. Lucia News Online will publish a biography of a contestant in the Miss Gros Islet Carnival Queen Pageant, scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 21, 2013 at Gaiety, Rodney Bay, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Born August 11, 1991 in the neighbouring soca island of Trinidad and Tobago, this tiny baby arrived into the world and was named Charlene Mohammed.
At the age of three, Charlene, accompanied by her St. Lucian mother Pamela and Trinidadian father Stephen, relocated to simply beautiful Saint Lucia, this country Charlene calls home.
She attended the Vide Boutielle Primary School and the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School where she gained eight CXC passes – geography, Spanish, social studies, information technology, English, mathematics, integrated science and building technology. Upon leaving secondary school, Charlene made a conscience decision to advance her education within the tourism industry. She attended the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and studied travel and tourism in the Hospitality Department.
Charlene works at The Landings, St. Lucia as an administrator in the Water Sports Department, and is also a part-time professional dancer for the fire-eating and limbo-dancing group, popularly known as Stars Incorporated. She is also a senior member of Sofyerie Promotions, a marketing and promotions agency.
As a young and energetic individual, Charlene enjoys the outdoors, especially adventurous tours, hosting family events, promoting and marketing goods and services, dancing, singing and being a role model to the young generation in her community; she is also very spiritual, loving, and compassionate.
Charlene would like to one day open a home for abused and neglected children, a future plan she holds dear to her heart; it is her way of giving back to her community.
She believes that everything is possible through the light of God.
Tomorrow, June 18, 2013 we will feature the biography of Endy Williams.
