Yanery Rosario, Executive Director
Yanery is the founder/owner of Miss Mission International. She is no newcomer when it comes to pageantry or producing events. She started competing in pageants at the age of 12 and has obtained a few titles throughout her years before switching her roles to directorship back in 2016. Yanery graduated with a major in Psychology while she was in college she was the choreographer for her schools Latin Dance Team. Yanery created MMI because she saw there was something missing in the pageant world, a system where girls can come and represent any advocacy their heart desires without having to change it to align with the mission of the organization. Her vision is that MMI will adapt every year to match the winners advocacy, not the other way around.
Natalie Camille Miller, Director of Production
From Oklahoma, Natalie now resides in Atlanta, GA where she launched her career as a full time creative. Her creative path stemmed from her beginnings in Pageantry. From holding National and International titles, production staff and Pageant Judge, Natalie is not a stranger to the Pageant community. The progression from Beauty Queen to Model was natural, and the community service projects she began as a title holder still remain as a part of her daily life.
From booking lifestyle campaigns she’s been featured Nationally televised campaigns, Catalogs, Digital Brand Marketing campaigns, runway shows and more as a Model. In other creative avenues she is an emcee for the World Championships of Performing Arts competition, music curator and dancer.
One of her favorite dance highlights is performing live with Ru Paul’s Drag Race contestant, LaLa Ri this year. Natalie also enjoys traveling the world and believes life is an adventure that should be lived without what ifs.
Heather Marie Thompson, Delegate Coordinator
Heather Thompson was the first ever Miss Mission International in 2021, so she knows the MMI organization in and out. She has been a pageant competitor for 6 years while also being a pageant judge. Heather gained the ability to spot women with the potential to be successful queens because of how immersed she has been in the pageant community these past 6 years.
When Heather is not judging or competing in pageants she is the assistant to an upscale interior designer, model, and donating time to her community. Her biggest passion is shining a light on the importance of mental health and wellness.
