Welcome Rebecca! I.C.A. Plans Motorcade and Press Conference for Miss Belize

Rebecca Rath

Rebecca Rath returns to Belize on Friday from the Philippines where she competed in the Miss Universe pageant. Rath picked up support from Belizeans from all walks of life. And even though she didn’t win, there has been a surge of support for the beauty ambassador from Dangriga. The Institute of Creative Arts will be staging a motorcade followed by a press briefing to welcome Rebecca home. Acting Director Karen Vernon is inviting Belizeans to join in the event.

“I think everybody is looking forward to welcoming Rebecca back home. And as you said it happens this Friday. As you said, it happens this Friday. She arrives at about twelve noon; there will be a welcome party at the airport…an official welcome party. The media will be there as well. And we bring her down into the city where we will have a motorcade through the principal streets of Belize City starting at about one-thirty buy the time she clears customs and immigration and all that. And then we do a press briefing here at the Bliss Center and the media can ask her questions; the floor will be open for people to have a chit-chat with Rebecca. It’s important because Rebecca, Miss Belize Universe, represented us very well at the Miss Universe pageant. She did an exceptional job as our beauty ambassador and she deserves a proper welcome.”

“What is expected of the public?”


Karen Vernon

“We would like the public to come out and welcome Rebecca; line the streets where the motorcade will pass. We are about to invite some schools to come out; it will be after lunch. You can come to the Bliss and be a part of the public here, ask questions…just have a warm welcome so that she feels this love.  And I know she felt it all the way across in Manila so she is back here now so let her feel the love that Belizeans have for her. We will definitely assist in any way that we could; I know that the different districts will want to see her, welcome her back to Belize as well. I am not sure what is being done in the different districts. I am sure Dangriga is doing something big. But she will continue as Miss Belize until we have another Miss Belize somewhere in the year because you know we need to get that ready as well. And we are open to help Rebecca in any way that we can.”

    What did this young lady achieve that other Ms. Belize Universe or World didn,t? Maria Jeffery, Becky Belinda Bernard, Charmaine Chinapen, Chantae Chanice Guy were all exceptional representatives. In fact, Ms. Dalila Vanzie was a fan favorite, who is in the Beauty Pageants Hall of Fame. Where are their cars and where was their motorcade?? This is ridiculous!
