Vivian Noralez to represent San Pedro at Miss Estereo Amor Pageant
Saturday, July 22nd, 2017
On Saturday, August 19th, eight beauties from around Belize will be competing to earn the title of Miss Estereo Amor Belize. Representing San Pedro, Ambergris Caye is the lovely Vivian Noralez. The other seven contestants are: Carmelita Lara (Cayo), Ederline Green (Corozal), Gissell Rodriguez (Cayo), Joannie Cantun (Orange Walk), Julissa Gilharry (Corozal), Kayla Awe (Corozal), and Selena Urias (Belize City).
The philosophy behind the Miss Estereo Amor Pageant is to select a young woman that best represents the culture, values, language, traditions, and the beauty of the Hispanic/Mestizo/Latino culture. This can be conveyed through their etiquette, professional presentation, eloquence, attitude, confidence, personality and knowledge of a wide variety of topics relevant to this prominent culture of Belize.
The competition, which will be held at the Sacred Heart College Auditorium in San Ignacio, Cayo District, will feature swimwear, eveningwear, and talent segments. In addition to winning a crown, Miss Estereo Amor 2017-2018 will be tasked to advocate the importance of their culture to the community during their reign.
Noralez stated that her goal is not necessarily to win, but to increase awareness and preserve Belize’s Mestizo/Hispanic/Latino history. “The reason I’m doing this pageant is because we are all living proof of how much our Latino culture is being lost. I will forever advocate for culture. I have a deep love for what I do. The goal is to keep inspiring, and show young women that no matter what you face in life, you should never let someone tell you you’re not good enough. There’s nothing a queen can’t handle. So that’s my goal, rather than winning,” said Noralez.
From practicing her walk to making her clothing selection and discovering more about her culture, Noralez is rigorously preparing herself for the competition. She hopes that this competition can not only enlighten her, but help build her confidence.
The San Pedro Sun wishes Vivian Noralez all the best in the Miss Estereo Amor Pageant!
