11 Belizean beauties to vie for Miss Belize

The journey begins for eleven Belizean beauty ambassadors from across the country as they vie for the title of Miss Belize and an opportunity to represent the Jewel in the 2016 Miss Universe Pageant in December. It is an opportunity of a lifetime because it’s been almost a decade since Belize has had a delegate in the international pageant. Well tonight we can announce that Channel Five is the official network for the Queen of the Jewel, Miss Belize Universe Organization and will be airing the pageant live on September tenth. Last Thursday, we met the delegates at an official launch at the Biltmore Plaza and asked them why they wanted to become the next Miss Belize. Here’s what they had to say:


Lyanne Reid

Lyanne Reid, Miss Belmopan

“Hi my name is Lyanne Reid and I’m representing Belmopan City as you can see, the Garden City. And I have been trying new experiences, I have been challenging myself lately to do different things out of my comfort zones and so this pageant was an option to do something out of my comfort zone. So it would mean a lot knowing that you can accomplish anything you put your mind at.”


Neidy Rodriguez

Neidy Rodriguez, Miss Collet

“My name is Neidy Rodriguez; I’m representing beautiful Collet. I would like to win this pageant because I want to be a role model for Belizean youths and lead them with examples.”


Theotisha Hall

Theotisha Hall, Miss Corozal

“Good night, my name is Theotisha Hall representing the beautiful Bay of Corozal. I would love to win this pageant because I feel that I am capable enough to be a great role model for the younger generation and advocating for upcoming generation as well. Thank you.”


Rebecca Rath

Rebecca Rath, Miss Dangriga

“I am Rebecca Rath and I am representing the culture capital of Dangriga. I love Belize, I am proud to be a Belizean and I really want to represent Belize in a different way. I’ve represented Belize through sports, through tourism and so I think it would be great to represent Belize at the Miss Universe 2016.”


Shamra Palacio

Shamra Palacio, Miss Esperanza

“Good night, my name is Shamra Palacio. I’m twenty years old, representing Esperanza Village, Cayo District. Why I want to win this is because I want to prove to myself that I can and I’d like to make my family proud and also my country. Thank you.”


Moriah Lino

Moriah Lino, Miss Las Flores

“My name is Moriah Lino; I’m from the beautiful city of Belmopan. And I’ve always been very interested in competing in a pageant like this. Why I would like to win is I would like to make a change; I would like to be seen as an inspiration to other young girls out there and many Belizean.”


Misty Swaso

Misty Swaso, Miss Libertad

“Good night Belize, my name is Misty Swaso and I am twenty-three years old proudly representing the beautiful village of Libertad, Corozal District. And the reason why I want to win this pageant is because I believe that pageantry is more than just a beauty queen; it is about being an ambassador for your country. And being an inspiration and also a role model for teenagers. One of my main goals is to encourage youths to stay in school and get an education because education is the key. And like my grandmother used to always say, silver and gold will vanish away, but a good education will never decay.”

Marcia Moody

Marcia Moody, Miss San Ignacio

“My name is Marcia Moody and I’m proudly representing the beautiful town of San Ignacio. I believe I should be the next Miss Belize because I do not only have a beautiful face, but I have elegance and I am intelligent and I believe that I would be a good role model for the society, especially to young girls. So I should be the next Miss Belize; that is why I believe I should be. Thank you.”


Dianira Rivera

Dianira Rivera, Miss San Pedro

“My name is Dianira Rivera; I am proudly representing the beautiful island of La Isla Bonita, San Pedro. And winning the title of Miss Belize for me would be such an honor, honestly.

Opal Enriquez

Opal Enriquez, National Pageant Coordinator, Queen of the Jewel

“Our team has been working very diligently to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch for these delegates so that we can have the best possible presentation on September tenth night at the Bliss. My partner Orson Elrington and I have been really focusing on making sure that the marketing for the girls is done properly. Holly, our Director of Communications, has been making a lot of phone calls, reaching out to a lot of people to get prizes sponsored, to get accommodations set up. Karen Vernon over at the Theatre has been making sure that our sets are ready. The contestants are ready to show Belize what they are capable of; show their talent, their beauty, their smiles, their intellect with the entire community, with our entire nation and with the world so we are very excited for them.”
