Hello Fellow Belizeans and Friends of Belize,
On September 10th 2016, our country witnessed the coronation of a new Miss Belize.
Rebecca “Bex” Rath, born and raised in Dangriga, will now compete against 90 other women from all over the world as she represents "The Jewel" in the Miss Universe pageant in the Philippines!
This is a proud moment for Belize as it celebrates the decade long return of Miss Belize to the Miss Universe stage. In Rebecca, we have an excellent chance of putting Belize on the map with a strong showing on January 30, 2017. Bex is not only beautiful inside and out - she is also driven, poised, wise beyond her years, and passionate about Belize.
Preparing and getting to Manila will take a village and funding. Rebecca is working with some of the best designers in the world to assure her wardrobe is world class; learns from models, photographers and past beauty queens experienced in the world of pageantry; and exercises daily with some of the finest trainers in Belize to put her in the best physical shape possible.
She is traveling locally and internationally to speak at special events and schools to not only bring her message of hope for our country, but to also acquire as much knowledge as possible about Belize so she may confidently and accurately present all of us to the world in Manila.
In order to accomplish this goal we have assembled an amazing team to help schedule and plan every day between now and Manila. For these reasons we are asking Belizeans within our country and around the world, and friends of Belize, to assist in raising the funds needed to prepare Bex and send her to the Miss Universe Pageant.
Your donations will be used to fund travel expenses, acquire required wardrobe, continue pageant and physical training, and purchase necessary gift items to carry to the Miss Universe Pageant for other contestants and organizers.
This journey is as much about Belize as it is about Bex. We all know how special our country is, and now, with your help, it will be time for us to show the world. All donations are secured and exclusively used to fund Rebecca's journey to Miss Universe. For more information or to learn more about Miss Belize Universe follow Bex on;
