Reigning Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier became the second runner-up during the Miss Universe pageant, held in the Philippines last year. Now, the time has come for the beauty queen to hand over the crown to another young women. So who will be crowned Miss Haiti 2017-2018?
It’s now down to 10 contestants. Over the course of the evening, it will come down to three finalists then to just one young lady.
Cassandra Chery is all smiles. She lost her mother to breast cancer, and this has turned her into a crusader against the disease.
Miss Chery was previously a contestant in several other beauty pageants in Haiti.
From the city of Port-au-Prince, we have Miss Haiti 2017-2018 contestant Alise Murielle Saralee.
She took the initiative and set up an education program for kids in her neighborhood. She previously represented Haiti at the Miss Haiti Caribbean pageant in Saint-Martin.
She holds an annual barbecue in order to help 10 of her countrymen to attend school.
She currently works with the non-profit organization Lanmou Manman. A seasoned beauty queen, she previously held the titles Miss Global 2016 and Miss Majestic 2017.
Like many of the other contestants, she’s had her share of misfortune. She lost several close family members in the 2010 earthquake.
And here’s Caroline Minerve Sanchelle Begein.
An aspiring architect, Miss Begein has worked as a translator for the U.S. Embassy. She started an environmental campaign to raise awareness about pollution at one of Haiti’s rivers.
She’s currently working on a Master’s degree in Communication.
