About her St. Vincent & The Grenadines. About her other interests. I have a deep love for nursing and caring for others. It is something that has been a part of me since I was a child. At present I am employed at the Argyle International Airport as a Customer Service Representative. In the future I plan to complete the Registered Nursing programme and then further my studies in medicine. Advice to young ladies who may look to her for guidance. My advice would be to stay true to who you are. Never feel the need to change anything about yourself, you do not need the validation of others only God and your guardians. Many times we as women get carried away with the media’s perception of “a strong beautiful woman” but I say this, true beauty comes from within. It is the ability to accept who you are as an individual, where you come from and to be able to share that with the world. That is true beauty and strength. Stand for what you believe in and never give up. In the words of Coco Chanel “keep your heels, head and standards high”. “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from or what you can and cannot afford, what matters is that you keep believing in yourself and never stop trying to make a difference.” ~ Shellisa Nanton The Owia Salt Pond is the ideal place for relaxation. Continuously refreshed by waves cascading over the volcanic rock formations that surround the pools, it feels like you are bathing in an aquarium. Reef fish and even coral formations add colour and life to what is a unique, peaceful and very special natural phenomenon. The Owia Salt Pond is located on the North Eastern Coast of St. Vincent in the village of Owia. The two hour drive from Kingstown along the Eastern Coast takes you to this recreation site which occupies a fairly extensive area of well-maintained picnic grounds. It leads down to the sea where the salt pond is situated. Traditionally, it has been used as a therapeutic bathing pond. Owia Salt Pond is a unique coastal feature of geological and oceanographic interest. Coastal rocks offer a partial enclosure from the Atlantic Ocean’s waves and swells, creating a “pool” of protected water used for bathing. St. Vincent and the Grenadines is home to some of the most spectacular sites and attractions in the world from our crystal clear waters to our lush green vegetation that adorns the mountain sides, and of course we have the most welcoming people thoughout the Caribbean. We are indeed the Caribbean you’ve been searching for! Owia Salt Pond
