By BBN Staff: The National Director for Miss America Latina Belize, Michael Arnold announced Michelle Estrella Nuñez as Miss Belize Costa Maya 2017.
Nunez is from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and aims to become the first San Pedrana to capture the Costa Maya crown.
The 26 year-old, 5’6” (1.68m) beauty was a past Miss San Pedro (2014). She also represented Belize last year at Miss America Latina del Mundo in Mexico, where she not only captured the award for Best Original Costume but also gave Belize the highest and thus far only placement in this pageant. She placed 4th Runner-up (out of 19), besting delegates from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Spain, among others.
Nunez graduated from St. John’s Junior College and currently works as an Assistant Sales Agent for ICB. She is the founder and director of SHINE (Shaping Healthy Identities through Nurturing and Empowerment), whose goal is to offer hope, empowerment, and a brighter future for young women. Her hobbies include healthy cooking, swimming, bike riding, running, and freelance modeling.
Nunez is excited at the opportunity to represent Belize internationally once more. “I would be honored to be the next Miss Costa Maya. If I would win, I would continue sharing my platform of inspiring and empowering young women,” she stated.
Michelle will compete against seven other delegates from across the region for the Costa Maya crown.
The pageant final is scheduled to be held on the night of August 3, 2017 in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.
