She highlighted some of the achievements of her fellow Kalinago people like Dr. Worrel Sanford the only Dermatologist on island and her chaperone Nakita Bruno who won the Miss Dominica title in 2006.Lando also explained that the easiest round for her was “the spectacular creation because I knew I would enjoy myself” while the toughest round was “the evening wear round; it was kind of easy but I was a bit nervous because I wanted to make sure that I carry my dress and carry myself in a queenly manner”.
