KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica’s long and enviable legacy in international pageants continued last Saturday as Lesa-Gayle Wee Tom walked away with the Miss Humanity International crown in Barbados.

Wee Tom, whose humanitarian platform dealt with issues concerning women and children, beat out almost 30 other women to win.

The contestants were also judged on talent, swimsuit, national costume and evening wear.

Second place went to Leleesa Payne of Guyana while Ayelee Dasalla of the Philippines was third.

The pageant was first held last year and aims to promote and raise awareness for humanitarian causes across the world.
