They were competing against islands throughout the Caribbean such as Anguilla, Antigua, other British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Nevis, Jamaica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago. After two rounds of public voting world-wide, they emerged finalists in multiple categories.

Tatiana Gibs was victorious in the category “Best Learning Experience” and Ronald Estephan was victorious in “Pastry Chef of the Year” and “People's Choice Award”.

Holding on to her aspiration to educate others, she became a Food Service Instructor at St. Maarten Vocational Training School, where she takes pride in honing the skills of her pupils in hopes that they too will follow their dreams.
