Introducing Miss Universe Belize Delegates

Meet the delegates of the 2018 Miss Universe Belize. The eleven ladies were selected from a pool of thirty-two applicants following auditions, background and social media checks. The candidates will now undergo rigorous training to prepare for the pageant at the end of August. Here’s a quick look at the ladies vying for the title:

“I believe I can be an advocate to inspire younger people, younger specifically, to become more confident in themselves. Like the slogan says confidently beautiful and that I feel is what us young women nowadays in our society because of how it is built up, is bringing us down and making us feel like we are not enough. And I believe that being the next Miss Universe Belize, I can help inspire these females to realize that yes we are enough, we are equal just as men and everyone else.”

“I have a passion for children and I want to be an advocate for these children in our society, especially of what is happening in our community today. I want to be that person to recognize that children are our next generation growing up.”

“I would love for it to be my duty to inspire others and I would like to branch out of Belmopan and reach to girls all over the country and let them know that they can reach for whatever dreams they have. They need to love themselves, respect themselves and believe in themselves. I would just like to be the best ambassador our country has ever seen and represent us the best I can on the international stage.”

 

Jessica Flores

“I believe that it is a great opportunity to help children and young females. I want to encourage young females to be very independent and to get a decent education so that they can uplift themselves. And by becoming Miss Universe Belize, I believe that I can help females do that because I am becoming that. I am an activist for mental health because it is a challenging situation in our community and a lot of people struggle from depression and sadness and it is a sad situation.”

“I believe I should be the next Miss Universe Belize because it is a great opportunity to become a great positive role model for young girls. And also a great opportunity to alleviate poverty which is something I am very passionate about.”

“I believe that there are certain characteristics that a Miss Belize should possess—enthusiasm, hardworking, perseverance and those are some characteristics that I possess. With those things, I can inspire young women of Belize and by inspiring young people; I believe that Belize can be a better place.”

 

Selena Urias

“I believe I have the attributes to represent my country and my people. I want to break the stereotypes in the country, be a voice not only for children, but for young women. I want to create a platform in order to uplift social standards, change society. And also because pageantry goes beyond the physical attribute.”

 

Jenelli Frazer

“Given the opportunity to be the next ambassador of Belize will give me the chance to inform others about two sensitive platforms that is very passionate to me and that would be mental health awareness as well as gender based issues. It gives me the opportunity to shed light on the positives in Belize, rather that Belize being notoriously known. And lastly, it gives me an opportunity to inspire others. The norm is no longer—step outside your comfort zone. It’s okay to be different whether it be race, gender, age, height; it is okay to be different. And as long as you are confidently beautiful in who you are, go out there and represent yourself well and respectfully and that is my goal.”

 

Ashley Reid

Ashley Reid, Delegate, Miss Universe Belize 2018

“I really just want to be a part of this pageant and win this pageant because I want to instill a change especially when it comes to the societal standard of beauty. And also I would like to put something out there that will just renew and set the new aspect of what is an ideal woman—one which is career independent and just intellectual.”

 

Two of the delegates were unavailable for interview today. Tickets are out and can be bought at Pink Boutique Outlets across the country and at Lush Spa and Beauty Lounge for thirty-five dollars.

    I believe you all are universe pageants for inspiring your different positive beliefs. No matter what happens continue on your path to uplifting especially the young ladies, aspire to be prominent figures in politics because here is where women are also needed, to change the course of Belize. I believe you can rise up to be higher than anyone past or present in Belizean history. Don’t let your dreams die down there.
