I spoke with Shynetta Bromell about her recently acquired title of Teen Miss Charleston. She’s Georgetown’s very own beauty queen and if you have seen her picture, you know that she is truly a beauty.
Shynetta grew up in the Choppee area and has lived in Georgetown all of her 18 years. She’s just recently started doing pageants which is unusual because most contestants have been doing them for many years building a name for themselves. I’m quite impressed that she won her first one.
She also competed in Miss Little Sweetheart which she won there. After that, Shynetta wants to go on to compete in the South Carolina State competition: she’s waiting on getting into the new system they’ve started.
When she’s not doing pageants she’s managing her own business. From my impression, I think its an online business because it has a website. The site is called, Shy’s Boutique and she sells make-up, cosmetics and some jewelry. She’s quite the little entrepreneur.
I mentioned that she’s probably tired of being asked and likely to think it’s belittling her, but I didn’t know how to ask any other way: what did she want to do with her life? Most people would say, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
She laughed a little and said, she’d like to be an EMT and work on people. “I really enjoy caring for others and I think that fits in,” she said of her ambition.
“What do you do currently?” I asked.
“Currently, I work in a nursing home in the activities department. I love it,” she gushed. “I love seeing them and I think they enjoy seeing me, too, when I come in because their faces light up and they smile. I just love working… I know it’s odd for a teenager to say they want to work but that’s what I want to do.”
Well, I for one will be rooting for her at the state competition. Shynetta is exceptionally beautiful, and from what I could tell, she’s beautiful from the inside-out. I think she’s got a good shot at the title.
Thank you for speaking with me Shynetta and very good luck in the pageant.
