Solani Graniel to represent Belize in International Pageant
Saturday, May 14th, 2016
The beautiful Solani Graniel has been selected to represent Belize in the “Miss Caribbean International Roots Pageant”. Graniel was contacted and given the opportunity to participate in the international pageant taking place from June 21 to the 26 in Colombia, South America.
Graniel is definitely not a stranger when it comes pageants, but this is her first international pageant. She currently holds the title of “San Pedro Lions Queen 2016-2017”, and previously, she was Miss San Pedro 2013-14. Beyond the glitz and the glam, she is routinely preparing to perfect her physique, poise, speech, and runway walk. Her main focus at the moment is a diet and exercise regimen to be in top shape, physically and mentally, for the big day.
The pageant was initially only for Colombia, but they have now invited other contestants from other Caribbean countries, which adds a cultural aspect to the event. Graniel feels honored to be representing San Pedro, and is thrilled to travel. “I look forward to visiting Colombia for the first time, and meeting new people. I’m excited to see what is going to happen in the end,” said Graniel.
Although Graniel is eyeing another crown, she is never overly confident. However, she is relying on her charm and talent to intrigue the judges, while doing her absolute best.
Graniel acknowledges Gach Guerrero, Marissa Salazar, her mother, aunts, the rest of her family, and friends for assisting her at every step. The San Pedro Sun congratulates Ms. Solani Graniel in her pageantry endeavors and wishes her the best of luck.
