San Pedro’s Iris Salguero prepares for Miss Universe; island holds farewell motorcade

Share

On Tuesday, May 4th, San Pedranos, along with Mayor Gualberto ‘Wally’ Nuñez, honored Miss Universe Belize 2021-2022 Iris Salguero with a motorcade, giving her a home town send-off as she prepares to represent Belize in the Miss Universe Pageant on May 16th in Florida, USA. The charismatic 24-year-old left the island early on Wednesday, May 5th, for Belize City for final preparations. Belize’s beauty ambassador then leaves the country tomorrow, Thursday, May 6th.

San Pedro is proud of Ms. Salguero, and islanders are sure that she will represent the country well in such a prestigious beauty pageant. She received a proper hometown send-off at around 4PM on Tuesday as she was a motorcade through the streets of San Pedro. Accompanied by Mayor Nuñez, Deputy Mayor Dianeli Aranda, Miss San Pedro Litzy Castillo, Councillor Adaly Ayuso, and others, the small motorcade went up the beach by Boca del Rio, down Laguna Drive, onto Pescador drive and then made its way back to Barrier Reef Drive.

Salguero happily waved at everyone passing by and those who cheered her from their homes along the route. The beauty ambassador shared with The Sun that she is ready to take the big stage at Miss Universe. “This is my fourth international pageant, and throughout the years, I have learned a lot from that exposure,” she said. “I feel excited, grateful and I have been putting a lot of hard work into this, and my hope is to put Belize on the map.” She added that Belize’s presence would be felt, and the voice of Belizeans will be heard.”

The San Pedrana’s pageantry career started with her coronation as Miss San Pedro in 2015, followed by having the opportunity to represent the country a year later in the Miss World Pageant. In 2017 she described the Jewel again as Miss Earth and the following year at Miss America Latina del Mundo.

Salguero thanks everyone who has supported the Miss Universe Belize Committee and her coaches. At the end of the motorcade, she received a donation from Mayor Nuñez, who wished her all the best. Salguero is still accepting any contributions and can be reached through her Instagram account irissalguero_.

The San Pedro Sun wishes her all the best as she represents Belize at Miss Universe.
