Renee Beckman of Alaska won this year’s Women’s International Leather Legacy title last month in Dallas. She’s become the latest Alaskan to take home an international title, one of a distinguished line.
“I’m actually the fifth,” Renee said in a phone interview with the Great Lakes Den. “We now have more international titleholders than anywhere else in the United States.”
Renee said she was actually shocked to win with the class of contestants she competed with. This year had five women competing, the largest number yet. She was taken aback by the bios of the other women and all they had done. When she was announced as the winner, she knew she had done enough.
