Mytheline Thompson

VOCALIST

Affirmation:

I was born into suffering but I wasn't born to suffer, and so, I am going to work very hard to be successful in life for both my family and self. I WILL NOT give up even when the challenge seems overwhelming; neither will I turn my back on those who helped me to overcome them. My aspiration is to fulfill my desired dreams; nothing will stop me from having my quest become reality.

 

Mytheline Abigaile Thompson was born on the 25th of July, 1997 at the Linstead Hospital in the parish of St. Catherine, Jamaica. At the tender age of (5) five months “Mitte” (as she is more popularly known) was sent to live with her grandmother in the quiet rural district of Lluidas Vale, St. Catherine. Mitte gained great strength and owned much life survival skills from growing up with her grandmother, a teacher and a pastor of a local church and school in the community and, of course, would have had the perfect audience to showcase her talent in her early childhood.

 

Her exploits landed her a place in a school of great pride (Charlemont High School), hereby allowing her to further her academics. At Charlemont, while remaining true to her academic, it was the field of music that would have captivated the heart, soul and mind of the young aspiring artiste. She would enter many of the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) competitions year after year helping her school to take home many trophies and medals and also gaining much valuable experience. This also afforded her an opportunity to work with one of the finest musical coaches to be found in the school system in Jamaica, Mr. Nigel Powell (brother of Jamaica’s athletic star Asafa Powell).

 

Having sparkled and showed great musical skills she would be kept busy performing at many local talent shows and other outstanding events such as the Sal Strategic Alignment limited Seminar called “The Educate Ja (Jamaica) Program” with different members of Parliament alongside the Minister of Education and many of Jamaica’s top musical schools such as Jamaica College and Glengoffe High School to name a few. She also performed at the unveiling ceremony for Herb McKenleys’ Monument. Mytheline spends a lot of time practicing her stage crafts and learning more about music as she worked with two (2) musical bands (Jamaica Musical Trail Band (JMT) and Future Vibration Band (FUTV)) for three (3) nights weekly, allowing her to grow and develop.

 

With all these experiences during her early stage of life and after, she then decided after finishing high school that she would set out to take on the journey of being responsible. At the age of seventeen (17), "Mytheline" left Lluidas Vale and then moved to Runaway Bay in St. Ann where she started working there as a Entertainment Coordinator at the Bahia Principle Resort. She then moved on to work at the Hilton Rosehall Resort and Spa and is now looking into pursuing her international music career. 

Being a part of the World Championships, representing her country (Jamaica), will be one of Mytheline's dreams that will come through. She is quiet excited in meeting everyone she possibly can and gaining any experience she can that will enhance her growth, not only musically but also on a personal level.

Sydonie Ferguson

MODEL

My name is Sydonie S Ferguson 24 yrs. of age currently working and attending Uwi Mona part time where I’m studying marketing. I’m originally from Clarendon but now live in the parish of St Andrew.

 

My love for fashion goes a long way back from when I was younger, I use to dress up and pretend like I’m on the runway sporting the biggest brands of all time.

I’ve entered the Pulse Model Reality TV show in 2018 where  I was place in the top five of that competition. I’ve also done some of Jamaica's biggest fashion runway shows like  Fashion Block , Caribbean Fashion Week, the Moda Collection, Mission Catwalk and also I have done an editorial shoot for Courtney Washington and  Rudney Novaes.

I love to rock the runway.

 

The reason for entering the World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA), is the fact that I want to show more of me to the world, and will strive to do this in this competition. Going on the WCOPA stage would be on of my biggest accomplishments. Going up against different  countries while learning and growing from each other, meeting new people, learning about their cultures while representing my country JAMAICA, and having fun doing so. I hope to bring home that GOLD and get seen and signed by an agency, to continue my dream.

Tahera Brown

VOCALIST, MODEL

My passion for music and pageants can be traced back to my school days when I became a member of my school music club and started entering pageants to become the school’s queen. I grew up in the community of Barking Lodge in St. Thomas but my family home is now in Stokes Hall District, Golden Grove, St. Thomas. I am a past student of the St. Thomas Technical High School, and a Runner Up to the School Queen. Am an active member of the school’s choir, dance club, Red Cross Club, among other clubs.

 

I am an adventurous individual who loves to travel and try new things. I have achieved a goal of becoming a Hotel Manager at age 26 and worked in the parish of Portland. I have always been outstanding in the areas of pageantry and entertainment, hence have made numerous audio, televised and print media appearances and entered a wide variety of competitions.

 

I always aim to motivate other plus size women to build self-confidence and show others that whatever the petite persons can do... plus size women can do too, or even better. This is a reason for auditioning as a plus size model for the first time in this competition. Despite discrimination faced due to the fact that i am plus sized, my determination, confidence and outstanding musical talent always keeps me among the top performers in every competition I have entered. I have been awarded with many achievements:

Pageants have afforded me some financial scholarship which enabled me to complete my studies in the field of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the multidisciplinary College of Agriculture Science and Education where I graduated with the President's Award for Most Outstanding Academic Achievements in 2015. I am currently:

* Employed  as an Entertainer at Hah-R-Mony Entertainment Montego Bay

 

*Entrepreneur who owns Faith Pin To Anchor
 Variety Supplies business.

* President of Global Progressive Movements (Miss Teen St. Thomas Pageant).

* Vocalist with House of Prestige Funeral Home

* Lead and Harmony Vocalist with Riddim 2000
  Band.

* National Pageant Coach.

I am guided by the philosophy "Never under-estimate the power and strength of a true black woman."

I enjoy singing, playing musical instruments, socializing, organizing events and excursions, baking, volunteering, engaging in pageant model activities and spending time with my one and only child, my daughter Faith Wright.

 

I look forward to representing Jamaica in an outstanding way at WCOPA, taking home world titles and achieve my goal of becoming a renowned world star.
