My name is Zoё Bernard, a member of the Teen Company B level of the Silver Shadow Performing Arts Academy. I am thirteen (13) years old and I attend the St. Joseph’s Convent Secondary School. I love exploring my imagination and creativity through drawing, painting, art and craft, poetry, writing, photography and dance. I have been an avid dancer and gymnast since the age of six. I am a member of One Love Gymnastics and a former student of the Saint Lucia School of Music and Music Man. I learned to play the keyboard, drums, and received certificates from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in singing. I have participated in the Edna Manley School of Visual and Performing Arts dynamic Children’s Summer Kaleidoscope Programme, which provided a daily dose of music, dance, drama and visual arts. I have received numerous awards such as the recipient of first place trophies for each category in the Sharks Swim Club, Primary Poetry, Essay and Photo Competition. I also received a first place trophy in the Lightning Aquatics Swim Club 10 and under Essay Competition in recognition of outstanding achievement in the annual Easter Kite Flying Competition, and 2nd place certificate for the most colorful kite in the junior category. My Involvement with the academy has afforded me the opportunity to participate in a number of Performance showcases such as four (4) Dance recitals, One (1) Major Dance Production (Movements) in 2018, street masquerade performances and National Independence National Parade 2019 are just a few of the notable mentions. I have a passion for the arts!
