At Waterford High she continued in the same vane participating in singing and dancing contests. There she started, sing, dance and perform at talent shows in school and in her surrounding communities, while in high school she won her school’s talent show and walked away with a cash prized and recognition from school mates. However, in her senior year of high school she developed a new interest; fashion and beauty. These new interest have led her to enter a number of beauty pageants including the Miss Teen Portmore in 2008. Yet there is more to Sassy than music and fashion as she demonstrated by obtaining second place in a national essay competition for teens while at the Waterford High School. At Sixteen years old, because of her desire to become a performer she adopted the name Sunshine. This she later changed to Shuneal which is a Muslim name that means the “The Chosen One “and Sassy is a French name which means “Very Pretty Girl” and “full of life” because she believes it fits her new image of a mature and sexy young woman.
