Queen of the Jewel – The Official Miss Belize Pageant was held at the Bliss Centre for Performing Arts on
July 7th 2012. In addition to the basic catagories such as swimwear, evening wear, and final question, the delegates did a phenominal job of demostrating the cultural theme “destinations Belize” through their national costume presentations. The pageant was aired live on Love Television as a large and excited audience cheered the nine talented young women from all regions of our country. Entertainment was provided by New Generation Dance Company , steel pan by Alex Evans and a steller performance by Belizean artist Nello Playa.
The night ended with the coronation of 19 year old Destinee Arnold, who represented Roaring Creek in the Cayo District. Destinee is currently pursuing her Bachelors Degree in Sociology at California State University in Fullerton and plans to pursue a career in Family Law. Upon completion of her education, Destinee hopes that her passion for outreach to high risk youth will help us to create a more promising future and a better Belize. “My 6th grade teacher had a banner hanging at the top of our whiteboard that said “What you do now will affect your future”. That statement has stayed with me throughout the years and is something that I would like to pass on to the youth of Belize” says Destinee. This talented and intelligent young lady is the eldest of four children and credits her family for instilling the values of strong work ethic, determination, and honesty. “My mother is my greatest inspiration,” says Destinee. She is the true definition of a go-getter but always makes family her priority.”
Destinee has recently completed phase one of her international pageant training and is ready to represent Belize with poise, grace, eloquence and pride. Along with a scholarship from the Ministry of Education, several resort vacations, and many modeling opportunities, the Official Miss Belize has received the honor of representing our jewel in the highly prestigious Miss International Pageant to be held in Okinawa, Japan from October 1st to October 22nd of this year.
