Mrs. Haiti International
Kenicha Narcisse is the ultimate beauty pageant queen. She’s won the Miss Port-au-Prince International crown, and now she’s the reigning Mrs. Haiti International 2017. Her laurels are many, but what goes on in the mind of this beauty queen. Follow PART II of my conversation with her. Do CLICK HERE if you missed PART I.

Kreyolicious: What’s the best thing that’s happened to you since being crowned?
Wow, since I’ve been crowned Mrs. Haiti International 2017 the best thing that’s happened to me so far is being able to serve my community with my sister queen Miss Haiti International 2017 Esther Lande.

Kreyolicious: Life is about wisdom. You ever thought you were right about something, only to find out much later that you were the one in the wrong?
OMG, yes. I can’t really remember a specific situation but most of the times I’m the one who’s wrong. As for my husband, I seem to lose every time with him. [Laughs]

Kreyolicious: What books have transformed your life?
I love to read and enjoy reading but the book I would say that transformed my life would be I Am Malala. I’ve always been an open person and known to never back down. After I read I Am Malala, her story changed my life completely. I was already taking a stand for my platform child abuse and neglect but I still had shame in me and afraid of the questions that will be thrown at me. Malala stood for education and because of her voice, her passion and her rights she almost lost her life when she was shot on a bus. That did not stop her from fighting for what she believed in. She made me realized that I had a voice for a reason and it was to be a voice for the voiceless and no matter what circumstances that comes my way don’t ever stop fighting. We all have the power to take a stand for something and I choose to use my voice for child Abuse and neglect victims and survivors.

Kreyolicious: You been to Haiti lately?
The last time I went to Haiti it was June 2014 and I have not been to Haiti yet after that trip. This December I will be in Haiti to educate my community the differences between “Abuse” and “Discipline” and as well bring school supplies to The Bridge of Children and Source of Life Foundation organizations

Kreyolicious: What’s next for you as Mrs. Haiti International?
I am looking forward to representing Haiti this year at nationals in Charleston, West Virginia and looking forward to being the first youngest Haitian woman to bring the the Mrs International 2017 home for Haiti and for my brothers and sisters who are victims and survivors of abuse. Everything is really in God’s hands, I will do my part of the job and wherever he places me I will be more blessed and happy with his decisions.

Mrs. Haiti International On Beauty, Women Friendships And Her Crowning, Part I

2017 Mrs. Haiti International
Kenicha Narcisse is the newest Mrs. Haiti International. She’s absolutely beautiful and she uses the same determination that made her a pageant queen as a trait to guide her in other aspects of her life. Lean in and listen as she discusses the beauty pageant, self-image and her crowning.

Kreyolicious: What made you enter the Mrs. International pageant?
I was Miss Port-au-Prince International last year, and I was placed First Runner-Up. After I got married in July, I wanted to continue being a voice for my brothers and sisters who are victims and survivors of Child Abuse and Neglect as well as continuing to compete in pageants. This is why I entered Haiti International Pageants as a Mrs. this year.

Kreyolicious: Based on what you know so far, what advice would you give to a little sister figure about how to make it through life?
My advice to everyone is knowing the purpose of your presence in this world. We all are here on this earth to do wonderful things. You are going to find friends and families that will not believe in your dreams, always doubting you and as well dragging your name in dirt but you knowing who you are, what you represent and why you are here on earth is how you’re going to make it. Most importantly believe in yourself and have faith in God because he knows your destiny and never give up on nothing.
Mrs. Haiti International 2017 Kenicha Narcisse

Kreyolicious: Some young women shun close friendships with other women. Your thoughts?
Nowadays, a lot of friendships are ending because there’s no communication between the friends and people believe everything they hear from others and most of the times it’s someone that’s jealous of the friendship that’s spreading rumors. My thoughts on friendships ending is that person never valued the friendship and the friendship did not mean anything to you or them.

Kreyolicious: Have you ever been made to feel like you weren’t good enough or pretty enough?
Since I came to the United States, I’ve always been fighting to be accepted by others. English is my second language and according to others I still have my accent. I’ve been made fun of the way I talk and the fact that I am Haitian. It wasn’t till I started meeting with my school counselor I knew that I can’t let others get the best of me and have their words define who I am. I found out in my high school years that if I kept getting mad and show others how badly their words affect me, it was never going to stop. They were going to continue to call me names if I gave them the reactions they were looking for and that was the same for some of my family members.

Kreyolicious: These days, when do you feel the most beautiful?
I feel the most beautiful when I am around children’s and they have a huge smile on their face. It melts my heart.

This concludes PART I of the interview with Kenicha Narcisse, the 2017 Mrs. Haiti International. Watch out for PART II. Meanwhile…
