Miss Belize runner-up heads to Miss World

Story Picture
Twenty-five year old Dalilah Vanzie was the first runner up in the Miss Belize Pageant. That position automatically made her Belize’s entrant in the upcoming Miss World Pageant to be held on December sixth in The People’s Republic of China. Today Dalilah received a much-needed donation from the Belize Chinese Association to help with her expenses. She took the opportunity to explain that despite some now resolved technical problems, she’s ready to represent her country.

Dalilah Vanzie, Contestant, Miss World

“Actually what happen is that I am twenty-five years old and the age limit is twenty-four. Pageants Belize and I, we worked really hard at getting special permission for me to be able to go, so here I am now. We found out like about four weeks ago.”

Jacqueline Woods

“So time is certainly not on your hands here. How have you been preparing yourself for the pageant?”

Dalilah Vanzie

“Well actually time is not on my hands, but I was actually mentally preparing before this just in case. I was going to the gym working out, I’m on a diet, a balanced diet, not one of those crash diets, of course not. And I’m also working out mentally. That’s, I think, one of the most important things, to get my platform well for when I go to the pageant in China.”

“What do you think about today’s donation by the Belize Chinese Association?”

Dalilah Vanzie

“It is definitely a great help because it will help me for my journey to China.”

Lee Mark Chang, President, Belize Chinese Assn.

“We have the money in our Association and we have special funds and we try to make good use of it. We’re donating twenty-five hundred dollars to Miss Vanzie to help her out with her trip and hope she represents us well in China.”

Vanzie leaves the country on October thirtieth.
