Miss Dominica 2013, Leslassa Shillingford Armour, took her tally of regional crowns so far, to two, when she was announced winner of the Jaycees Queen Show 2013 at just about 1.00 am on Saturday August 3, 2013.
Armour-Shillingford won from a field of eleven competitors at the regional pageant in Antigua which featured a bevy of beauties from around the Caribbean and as far afield as the United States.
The Dominican “beauty with brains” who recently captured the Miss Carival title in St. Vincent, copped awards for Best Interview, Best Swim-wear, Best Performing Talent and Miss Photogenic
First runner-up is Miss Antigua and second runner-up is Miss Anguilla.
Armour-Shillingford was crowned by last year’s winner of the Jaycees competition, Miss Dominica 2012, Nadira Lando.
Leslassa recently captured the 2013 Miss Carival title in St Vincent walking away with the awards for Ms. Photogenic, Best Talent, Best Evening Wear and Best Inteview.
In a recent interview with DNO, Armour-Shillingford’s chaperone Carla Armour, said that just like in Antigua, Leslassa is prepared for her next regional pageant, the Miss Caribbean Culture Pageant in Nevis on August 5th.
Armour has urged the public to to keep Leslassa in their prayers and encouraged them to show their support.
