Miss Dominica, Tasia Floissac, has captured the crown at the 2016 Jaycees International Queen Show, held in Antigua on Sunday night.
It was her first regional crown.
The jubilant queen gushed to reporters about her homeland.
“Go big, or go home. We are all about consistency…” she said. “There’s no place better than D.A. massive, 767, the Nature Isle of the Caribbean.”
