On September 10th, 2016 the life of Rebecca Rath was completely transformed after she was crowned as the new Miss Belize Universe. Following her triumph, Rath officially began her journey on the road towards becoming recognized as Miss Universe 2017. Though Belize had not participated in the annual pageant for almost a decade, it is anticipated that Rebecca will boost the level of confidence for many as she has already achieved a milestone for the jewel.
Last week we told you that Miss Belize travelled all the way to Manila, Philippines in order to make final preparations for the pageant which will kick off in less than two weeks. The twenty three year old representative stands among a total of ninety delegates from across the world who are vying for this year’s crown. In less than a week, Rebecca has managed to capture the attention of many…. both locally and abroad with her stunning personality and charisma.
Following last night’s ‘Yamamay Swimsuit Presentation’, she was recognized on the Miss Universe Fanatic’s Facebook page which indicated that quote “Her smile is contagious and that blew the audience away”. End of quote. When it comes to the first official Miss Universe event… the Governor’s Ball, one of the major commentators present at the event selected a total of six of his favourite gowns. Not only was Miss Belize chosen among that list but she was also named as the ‘best dressed’ for the entire night as she wore a modern gown inspired by the colours of the Caribbean Sea.
The support Rebecca Rath has been receiving from the general public is immense and is clearly evident in the voting polls which places her at the top. However, the Miss Universe Organization will be opening the official voting polls on the 23rd of January which is said to automatically guarantee a spot in the semi-finals. For more information on how to cast your vote, you can visit the Miss Belize Universe Facebook page.
The pageant will be held on Sunday January 29th, 2017 which will be aired on Fox.
