St Kitts and Nevis: St Kitts National Carnival has introduced the list of contestants of the National Carnival Swimwear Competition on December 5, 2022.
The first contestant was Arcadia Harrigan; while introducing her, the National Carnival said that September 24 2002, marks the unveiling of a gorgeous, ambitious and multi-talented gem known as Arcadia Harrigan. She is the second child born to her mother, Brenda Harrigan, a proud and patriotic citizen of the twin-island federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Being a motivated individual, Arcadia sees no challenge or obstacle that she cannot overcome.
Arcadia’s quest for knowledge started at the Beach Allen Primary School, and in 2019, she successfully completed her CSEC Examinations and graduated from the Washington Archibald High School. Arcadia’s love for cosmetology and esthetician propelled her to invest her time in developing her artistry skills and learning about the best products for skin care. She was a reliable and welcoming employee at Lucky’s Duty-Free Store for two years, where she increased her knowledge about various makeup and perfume products/lines the store carried for their customers. This allowed her to enhance her knowledge of the industry while enhancing her communication, sales and marketing skills.
At the age of 13, she joined the modelling agency “CatWalk Coaching SKN”, where she learned to improve her modelling and presentation skills whilst building her confidence. As an upcoming model, she was required to wear makeup for most of her appearances, which sparked her interest in learning makeup professionally. She sought and took advantage of every opportunity available for training by attending makeup classes such as Bedazzle Art School International, Khyla Cares, and Brow and Facial Hair Training Class hosted by Petra & Co, just to name a few.
Arcadia is a now young Entrepreneur and CEO of LeBeaute BAR, which was inspired by her passion for makeup, fashion and modelling. Arcadia has learnt a lot about skincare, makeup and business management which helped with the blueprint for building her business and her desire to further her education and career.
During her leisure time, Arcadia enjoys spending time with her friends and loved ones, trying different cuisines, promotional modelling, adventurous activities and fashion consulting.
Arcadia is very excited to be a part of the St Kitts National Carnival as a contestant in this year’s sugarmas 51 National Carnival Swimwear Pageant. Arcadia believes we should live life to the fullest and try to be happy every day.
