In Her Own Words...
"Ladies and gentlemen… Hello!
My name is Shernya van der Koelen, I am 20 years old and I study Science & Technics of Physical & Sports activities. I love sports, it is a good way of fulfillment for young people. I want to become a sports trainer.
I love dancing and driving, and I speak French, German, and Creole. I live with my parents and my twin brother.
Guadeloupe is a multicultural and multiethnic Island. I have the opportunity to represent my island at the Miss World contest. My Island helps me and makes possible my presence with you.
See you in Indonesia!"
