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.”
She thanked her supporters, and shared her accomplishment with them.

“I miss you guys,” she stated. “This is for you! This is for all of us.”

She also won prizes in the Miss Photogenic, Best in Swimwear, Best Performing Talent, and Best Interview categories.

First runner-up position went to Miss Antigua and Barbuda while Miss Nevis took second runner-up position.

    Congratulations Tarsia, job well done. You prove to your enemies. That God is in control. He guides the path of His children, not man. Praises to Him.

    I do know but the Queen Show Committee personnel are the best in the Caribbean. From what I see, Dominica is well organised. No other Caribbean Country can organise like us.
