Belizean Delegate Destiny Wagner Wins Miss Earth 2021

Destiny Wagner

History was made on Saturday night when Belize’s very own Destiny Wagner was crowned Miss Earth 2021. It is a big step for the pageant industry in Belize because as a country we have only managed to place once, and that was way back in 1979 when Sarita Acosta competed in the Miss Universe pageant. But this time, Wagner not only placed, she captured one of the five international titles. News Five’s Duane Moody has the exciting event.

“My country has never placed at Miss Earth before nor have we ever had an international crown. So right now this is what we needed and I am happy to represent such a gorgeous country. I am overwhelmed with emotions, I don’t even, the words and the gratitude, it’s very hard to express. But I am thankful and thankful to the Miss Earth organization and thankful for my team as well.”

Belizeans at home and overseas were on the edge of their seats on Saturday night as they watched as the virtual Miss Earth 2021 competition got underway. Following preliminary competition, it was down to the final night and Belize’s very own Destiny Wagner was called in the top 20.

After competing in swimsuit and evening gown segments, it was narrowed down to the top eight and once again the Belizean beauty ambassador from Punta Gorda was chosen.

“I’m someone who loves to be surprised and I think there is beauty in being surprised, especially if you are receiving a gift or an honourable mention. However what I don’t like to be surprised in is a natural disasters or pandemics such as the corona virus. That is a surprise that none of us anticipated, however, at the end of the rain there is always a rainbow and right now Miss Earth pageant is giving us that rainbow to fulfil the duties as a queen even during a virtual pageant.”

Wagner is a certified dive master and has worked with her community in the South as her family operates an N.G.O. feeding program in that municipality. Her passion for the environment was exemplified in the pageant. The entrepreneur and digital influencer stands for the sustainability of marine life. After the first round of question and answer, she was named as one of the top four finalists. She was guaranteed a crown, but she had one question left to answer. The final four were asked: “How far can technology go to help save the environmental situation we are in?” Here was her title winning response.

“I’m so thankful to live in a digital age right now because of technology we are able to spread awareness of things that are happening. Not only in my country but in other countries as well, however, technology can also be used to save my environment because by incorporating innovation in technology as well as sustainability, we can use those two things to come together. I am so thankful to be a woman now in 2021 and being able to have access to these things, such as solar energy and renewable energy. When mixing them together there is nothing we can’t do, so I am thankful to be in the digital age of technology and it will be used to save the planet.”
