The organization of Miss Grand Jamaica announced Monique Thomas as the new Miss Grand Jamaica 2020 and she will represent Jamaica at Miss Grand International 2020 scheduled to take place on 27th March 2021 in Thailand.

She works as a professional model and has lived in the US and Italy and has travelled to over 15 countries that has helped her in gaining a lot of experiences of life. She feels honoured and blessed to have a chance to represent her country at Miss Grand International 2020.

Monique mentioned, “I am most proud of my tenacity, adaptability, and compassionate heart. I believe these qualities will enable me to educate others on the importance of one’s overall wellbeing, mindful consumption, and how it plays a role in physical and mental health. My tenacity will ensure that I make the impact I hope to make during my reign and make a difference. It's all about having a vision, the willpower to execute it, and being open to all possibilities.” She was adjudged as the second runner-up at Miss Universe Jamaica 2020 at the end of the event finale.
