|Newly crowned Ms Guyana Talented Teen 2014 Ms Reesa|
1)Please tell us who you are for those not familiar with you?
My name is Reesa SooklalI, 14 years of age and I’m privileged to be a student of Queen’s College, the highest secondary education institution in Guyana. I’m aspiring to become an Obstetrician Gynecologist and I love animals.
2)Describe your Fashion sense?
I love the idea of wearing denim shorts and a wide neck T-shirt or sweatshirt with a pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
3)What 3 words best describe you as a person?
I believe that compassionate, vibrant and down-to-earth are three words that definitely defines who I am.
I basically entered the Miss Guyana Talented Teen pageant because at age 12, it was my dream to become a model and also I would like to become a positive role model to other teenagers, especially girls.
5)What did you think won the hearts of the judges that you was crowned queen?
I strongly believe that my talent piece on the night of the pageant won the hearts of the judges that made me queen since it displayed some of my personalities and I basically showed them that I am multi-talented by combining a guitar piece along with my belly dance.
6)Tell us how did you prepare for the pageant?
Preparation for this pageant required a lot of hard work and dedication that I definitely gave into. Every afternoon I, along with my fellow contestants practiced at the National Cultural Centre from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It entailed a lot more than just walking. For example, we were exposed to table etiquette, wardrobe etiquette, ballroom dancing, etc., which contributed to making us well rounded individuals.
Mr. Randy Madray, a famous Guyanese designer, designed the fabulous gown I wore for the pageant. We discussed a suitable design that would definitely portray my personality and allowed me to display the gown to my fullest ability. With the gown being fuchsia pink, one of my favorite colors, it was definitely an appropriate color for a teen pageant.
I will be participating in the Haynes Smith Caribbean Talented Teen 2014 pageant. At the moment, I’m basically improving on my talent piece as well as my interviewing skills for the upcoming pageant which is scheduled for December, 2014.
9)What are your 5 secret tips to winning a crown?
Five secret tips to winning a crown which I personally believe are:
- Always wear a smile since this will show some amount of your personality
- If you don’t have an answer to a question, always make an attempt and try to answer to your fullest ability.
- Always be kind to everyone since this might make persons see you as an outgoing individual
- Ensure you have full knowledge of you platform and choose one that you’re comfortable with
- Ensure that any task given you is done on time in a proper manner, to your fullest ability.
10)What do you enjoy doing when your free from school/work?
During my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar, playing with my pets, skating, painting, dancing and playing outdoor sports- my favorite outdoor sport is cricket.
I see myself in the next ten years studying to become an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist and also as a positive role model to persons.
12)What music would have you running to the dance floor?
I enjoy different types of music but of them all, I would confess that soca music will definitely have me running to the dance floor since the beat they have is rather hyped and makes me want to dance and just be myself.
13)Tell us all about your talent you did for Ms Guyana Teen 2014
Being motivated by the dedicated and cultural environment that I came from, my passion lies within playing the guitar and dancing. I started playing the guitar about a year and a half ago being inspired by my sister, Monisha Sooklall. Belly dancing inspires me by reminding me of my cultural heritage. My wildest fantasy is to become a famous belly dancer like the late, Dolly Baksh. I believe that we are all influenced by a fusion of our culture and so I danced to an instrumental and then to African drums played by nine year old, Ricardo Primo Stanton.
I think that The Fashion Police News blog is rather necessary since it is worldwide and it updates everyone on the new trends in the modelling world.
15)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
As a female, I personally value men’s opinion so I would say that it’s great to have men teaching women to walk.
16)Who is your role model and why?
My role model is a very hardworking, loving and determined individual, my mom, a woman who respects time. By sharing a really close relationship with her, she helped me to develop the knack of fighting for what I believe in and for what is right and I think that it helped to make me the person I am today.
17)If you had the power to change the pageant world what would you change and why?
Well since I’m only 14 and this is my first pageant experience, I don’t exactly have an opinion on what I would like to change in the pageant world.
18)What would you say is your best assets and why?
I consider my height, hair and smile as my best assest since not everyone who are eager to model are as tall as I am and I like my hair since it is soft, straight and of a natural dark brown color. My unique smile is adored by many including myself and it displays my fun personality.

19)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare them?
Well I’m only 14, hence not much of a good cook, but if the Fashion Police were to have dinner at my home, my mom would entice them in a wonderful, finger- licking, local Guyanese cuisine, curried chicken and dhal puri / rice.
20)What advice do you have for other young women looking to enter the world of pageantry?
My advice to other women seeking to enter the world of pageantry is “be confident in yourself and never doubt your potential. Beauty is not only about having a pretty face; it’s about having a pretty heart, a pretty mind and a pretty soul.”
21)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?
At the moment, I am not wearing any perfume. However, I frequently use ‘Curious by Britney Spears’.
