On Saturday, all Dominicans watched the final show of “Miss World 2013“, because Leslassa Armour-Shillingford, Miss Dominica 2013, was going to participate in this worldwide presigious beauty contest. She has been crowned with four regional titles: Miss Dominica 2013, Miss Carival in St Vincent & the Grenadines, Miss Jaycees International in Antigua and Miss Caribbean Culture in Nevis. Also, she holds title of First Runner up in the Miss Caribbean World Pageant.
Miss Dominicaâ€™s participation at the Miss World 2013, for the first time in 35 years, was great opportunity to promote Dominica. All of us were holding the breath for the success of the young lady. She has conquered practically the whole world, taking the second place in the Miss World People’s Choice award contest.
Also Leslassa was among the 12 talent finalists, performing with a ballet dance:
Dominica was the 8th performer of the night, who chose to display her highly technical ballet â€˜en pointeâ€™. One of the most technical styles of Ballet, Dominica showed why she was chosen for the top 12, and seemed to really enjoy performing for the judges and the audience, who applauded her when her performance came to a close.
In my opinion, this is a great performance: stand out from 127 beautiful contestants is a very and very difficult task.
But no need in more words, lets us see the Dominica beauty:
