“I am so excited Duane. I would think that I would feel a little bit nervous, but no this is my fourth pageant so I have the experience, I have been training really hard. Everybody has been sending me amazing messages of encouragement and motivation and I am just grateful. And of course I have my flag with me; what more to feel proud and to feel comforted.”

“Well you know, as I arrive, I have to take another COVID test and then quarantine one night in my hotel room until we get my test results. After that, we will have orientation and some fittings to finalise the outfits for the opening dance number. I am excited of course to meet my roommate – it might be Bolivia or Belgium – whichever girl, I know they are sweethearts and I am just excited to start on this experience. You know my national costume is inspired off of Baron Bliss. We wanted something that was a pant suit that gave us kind of sailor vibes given that the fishing industry is a big thing in Belize as well. And of course my red flower, the island girl touch and the red white and blue – the colors of our beautiful flag. I will make you guys proud. Our presence will be felt, our voice will be heard. I know a lot of you believe in me and that is what just keeps me inspired and motivated every day. I have said it so many times and never get tired of saying it. This is not just my story, this is our journey. I am your Miss Universe Belize and I know that I will make every single one of you proud.”
