    First and foremost. Congratulations miss Floissac. Secondly you and your team and chaperone seriously need to sit and explore better creative brighter more stunning evening wear creations. Those glittered dresses not doing you enough justice. For such great physique u should have an evening wear that leaves onlookers speechless. I forsee u winning the other competitions but you and your team needs to step up your game in the evening wear and Q&A segments. I’m quite surprised that Leandra didn’t pick this up as I know she pays attention to every single detail. Again, great job and congrats.

      Great comment dear. I think the team needs to seek opinions to better her for the next few competition. That dress wasn’t the business. also i do hope the switch up the sound selection because more than likely it will be the same girls with the exception of Antigua competition in the next few shows. Swimwear was a little disappointing because i think they could have crafted something out of the park for her. Oh costume we can do better. What happen to Chalene white and crew we have great builders etc in Dominica we need to come better. Lastly as a media personnel i think this young lady should be more fluid with the response section think she is really lacking and more is to be desired from her seeing she is a journalist. Just some comments please don’t be offended dear.

    Dominica`s well established reputation is quickly being eroded as a CROWNCHAMPION IN REGIONAL PAGEANTRY . We are now getting all hyped up over continuous mediocrity. The nature isle deserves better than that.We are losing our competitive edge. No one notices 1st runner up , dont you notice that its the winner who takes it all?Ms Marcia Baptiste, Ms Lescassa, Ms Marcella Larocque and Queen Leandra blazed the Caribbean multiple times. This is what we have to protect, maintain and return to not above average performances where gown,swimsuit, and to a lesser extent speech/interview issues continue to impede Tassy,s progress.Miss Floissac is undeniably beautiful and has crafted her physic which is doubtlessly flawless but its not being exploited for pageantry. Her beauty is being imprisoned by wrong color combinations and questionable makeup hairstyling. Her interview response though on point is still in need of greater depth.Let us rally around Tassia , kill the controversies of her win

      Not forgetting Ms Nakita Bruno

        I’m happy you recall Nakita Bruno. She was such and still is a gracious queen. There was a lot of talk from critics when she captured Miss Carnival Queen title, but she shut them up good after winning three regional crowns.

        Tassia cannot come in the same class as Queen Nakita, so dont confuse stones with vanilla. Tassia is just average. Too much hype and nothing to show on the bigger stage. How she is queen I dont know.

      Great commentary

    July 2, 2016

    Well done but you need to work on the type of evening dress that you utilize. Another area you people have to look into is in putting a little more depth on the response that you give to the question that is based on your biography-career plans ie journalism. In all fairness you’ve shown definite improvements in every aspect of your performances.
    You will take\win a few crowns and dont you give up…..am not a fan per se but wish you well as Dominica`s distinguished rep.

    July 2, 2016

    Again you make me proud to be 100% Dominican. #teamTasia

    Congrats Tassia… Very well done

    My concern us what can be done for you in order to win the remaining titles…

    We need to know how Miss Dominica can win the other titles.

    My presumptions.

    Change style and color of swim wear

    Also invest in a more bright evening gown. The blue dress does not bring out her total beauty.

    Take this as constructive observation..

  14. July 2, 2016

    Well done Miss DA continue the good work.

  15. July 2, 2016

    We know you gave it your all.Congrats from us all.Movement………
