Leanne Evalyn Morancie, of Dominica is the 2017 Miss Legacy International. In addition to the prestigious title, she also snagged the Miss Photogenic title, and was awarded for Best National Costume, and Best Empowerment Platform – F.L.Y. (First. Love. Yourself), which focuses on youth empowerment and development through the fine arts. She was crowned in Kingston, Jamaica.

I felt ecstatic.” She continues to say, “capturing the title of Miss Legacy International is a dream come true, I have truly worked hard on this journey and cannot wait to fulfill my duties as queen.”
The Miss Legacy International Pageant is the brain child of Jamaica native and CEO of the Roushelle Reign creative consultant agency, Ms. Roushelle ‘Reign’ Green. No stranger to pageantry, Green has previously won the title of Miss Canada Petite 2012.
As a woman of international stature, Green created the Miss Legacy International Pageant to build a sisterhood of leadership while highlighting beauty and the philanthropic efforts of the respected competitors. Alongside CEO of Miss Legacy International Roushelle Reign, is her team, Communications Director Lij Tafari Smith, Operations Manager Ifidel Williams, and Samantha Saab acting Assistant Director.
“We are elated to have Leanne as Miss Legacy International 2017. Both her personal and professional goals align perfectly with our mantra and as such, she is suited to be our queen. I believe her reign will initiate conversations around the globe taking her, the brand, and its community outreach to different heights.” says Green.
Leanne now has her eyes set on future pageants, including the 2018 Miss University of the Virgin Islands Ambassadorial Pageant and the I Am Every Woman Pageant based in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. As she serves as ambassador for the Caribbean internationally, Leanne plans to promote her platform F.L.Y and build the youth through the fine arts.
