Amy is a 20 year old gem from the picturesque and tranquil community of Riviere Cyrique and is honored to make representation for the South-Eastern District in the 2010 Carnival Queen Pageant.
Born and raised into the care and affection of her extended family Amy has blossomed into a well-mannered, charming, fun-loving, pleasant lady with a gentle disposition and an infectious ever-present heart-warming smile.
Becoming Miss Dominica has always been Amyâ€™s dream. It all began at the Morne Jaune Primary School where she was first introduced to the stage.
She acquired her secondary education at the Castle Bruce Secondary School. Amy distinguished herself through being an exemplary student. In her final year of high school, Amy was honoured with being crowned Miss CBSS 2005. At her graduation, she was recognized as the Student of the Year and captured the awards for School Spirit, Leadership and that of the Most Disciplined Student.
Miss Amy Sasha Polypore continued to make her mark on stage when she was crowned pageant queen, Miss South East 2006. She also furthered her education at the Dominica State College from which she graduated in 2008 with an Associate Degree in Business Administration.
Amy loves singing, folk dancing and drama and finds exquisite delight in writing poetry. She is an active member of the Sisserou Singers group, and presently serves as the secretary of the Morne Riviere Teen Club. She is also a member of her church choir.
Currently employed at the First Caribbean International Bank as a Client Services Officer, Amy aspires to pursue studies in marketing, especially as it relates to the banking industry. She is a peopleâ€™s person! Increased knowledge in that field, she believes will equip her with the skills required to offer more specialized advice to persons on products which will benefit them from the wide-ranging services available at banking institutions.
Amy thrives on the positives and takes pride in overcoming challenges. It is that well cultured, good-natured, free spirited, ever friendly personality that drives this Nature Island beauty towards the attainment of the coveted, Miss Dominica, 2010 title.
