Even if some improvements are noticeable in this new edition of Miss Haiti, it will definitely take much more from the future winners than just been able to post pictures on Social Media and ask to vote for them.    Within five months, they will have to have a platform, understand the importance to be a role model for their followers in all aspect of their lives, master the art of communication.    After all, this is what Miss Haiti Organization is seeking this year in the future queens:  “They have to be role models, leaders. They have be fine example in order to influence positively the Haitian youth, have a platform.”  

We truly hope that our winners will be ready to compete very soon on international level next to hundreds of other young women from around the world.

The queen who will succeed to Seydina Allen (Miss World Haiti 2015) will be elected on august 13, 2016 at Royal Decameron.

Lisa Elizabeth Drouillard, Miss Haiti Universe 2015 andMarie Viannye Menard, Miss Haiti International 2015, will crown the new Miss Haiti Universe 2016 and Miss Haiti International 2016 on August 27 at Hotel Oasis in Pétion-Ville.
