By Aaron Humes: Both something of a concession speech and a thank-you, first runner-up at the 2022 Miss Belize Universe pageant on Saturday night, Alina Scott, has spoken out, congratulating her rival Ashley Lightburn.
“Congratulations to our new queen – she is so deserving of all the good that is coming her way. I know she will blow you all away,” she wrote in a social media post.
Evaluating her own performance, Scott said she “pageant walked my heart out and answered each question with the confidence instilled in me from my Belizean education. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to grow this much this quickly,” and cited her growing up in both Cayo and Punta Gorda (she is a resident of Belmopan).
She further thanked the dancers who opened the show, including one who confided that she wants to be Miss Belize one day, and the others watching at home: “…this was for you. Today and every day we celebrate the myriad of ways to be a woman. There is no wrong way to be yourself.” She further thanked those friends and family who supported her journey of “joy.”
In pageant tradition, as first runner-up, Scott assumes responsibilities as Miss Belize if Lightburn is for any reason unable to do so.
