Marjorie forayed into the pageant world late in life but
has been enjoying it ever since. Her belief is that pageantry can
be a great way to promote and bring awareness to a cause.
Marjorie had the honor of being Mrs. New York International
2015. She was able to use her reign to further promote her
platform of Stillbirth Awareness. Losing their son 12 years ago helped Marjorie to see that a life without helping others is an empty life. So, she is devoting herself to helping families get through a painful time in their lives. As a Haitian-American, when hearing of the devastating earthquake in Haiti had occurred, it was an easy decision for Marjorie to return to do missionary work in Haiti. Yet, she yearned to do more. Educate Haiti Now annual Teacher Summer Institute is held over the summers and with much success, making it a great platform for Marjorie. As a teacher, this was a huge attraction in Marjorie’s
decision to volunteer for EHN. Being the recipient of the Woman of Excellence Award as well as a Citation from the Borough of Brooklyn for her community service has fueled Marjorie to keep up her work in service.
Marjorie holds a Master’s degree in Childhood Education from NYU and has been teaching for over a decade. She currently teaches fourth grade at a Title I school in Brooklyn, NY. Marjorie has been involved in community service for many years, having volunteered for New York Cares and various other non-profit organizations.
Her love of pageantry has ultimately led her to embark into the world of Esthetics and is a licensed Esthetician. Marjorie currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband Roman of 14 years and their son.
