A Guyanese born resident of New York, United States of America is firmly on the road to vying to become the next Mrs. International 2016, as she has recently been crowned Mrs. New York international.
Faudia Silletta is a native of Vreed-en-Hoop, Guyana. She grew up in a single-parent household with her mother, Shabeeba, and two brothers, Zaiyad and Frankie. She has stated that during this time she honed the qualities needed to succeed in life, all the while helping others.
“I’ve always been one to solve problems, and so the medical field, specifically clinical laboratory work with an emphasis in Microbiology and Chemistry, seemed like a natural fit for me.”
She became licensed as a Medical Technologist in New York only a few years after becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States. She is the holder of a Master’s Degree in Microbiology and Chemistry. Being striking in appearance is only one of the requisites for becoming Mrs. International.
The annual pageant is for married women with exceptional personal and professional stories.
In addition to being married, Faudia is the mother of two boys.
Faudia says she has always been well-grounded and will not allow all the growing attention coming her way to fog her judgment.
“While I am honoured and enjoying this crazy ride, it does not define me as a person,” she recently said. “I am so honoured to take part in such a wonderful American tradition, especially with my family rooting for me.”
Faudia, is looking to represent New York, the Guyanese population at home, and the wide diaspora in the USA, Toronto and the United Kingdom.
When she is visiting neighborhoods to canvass support, she will be looking to meet her Guyanese supporters to raise awareness and funding for the fight against the homeless, orphans, battered women, drug abuse and teenage delinquency, depression, breast cancer awareness and autism.
She will next represent New York in her quest for the title of Mrs. International 2016 this summer in Jacksonville, Florida.
The Mrs. International Pageant was developed to promote today’s married women, their accomplishments, and commitment to family and marriage. Around the world, women are finding this system to be the opportunity to work with their families to become positive role models.
The event will give each contestant the opportunity to learn about customs and family life in other countries, along with the chance to share her beliefs and make new friends during the entire week of activities leading up to two exciting evenings of competition.
