Andrea Elrington, 22, is representing Belize in the 2005 Miss Universe pageant to be held in Bangkok, Thailand The Miss Universe event brings together beautiful women, important personalities, artists, designers, investors, the media and thousands of tourists; all of whom eagerly take part in what is considered possibly the biggest pageant in the world, and witnessed by billions of people. Nations worldwide will witness the beauty of this country and all that Bangkok has to offer.
In a letter addressed to The San Pedro Sun, pageant consultant for Miss Elrington, Mrs. Margaret Johnson, stated, “We are aware and very proud of her [Miss. Elrington’s] accomplishments so far and should make one proud regardless of the outcome.”

The most gorgeous women from all over the world are vying for the title to be crowned Miss Universe. These ladies go through a grueling process in order to get ready for the big night that promises to be full of glitz, glamour and poise. Mrs. Johnson went on to explain the intense training and strenuous preparation Miss Elrington is going through and asked The San Pedro Sun to share this information with our readers, Miss Elrington’s beloved Belizean audience. During her training period Miss Elrington is expected to be in many fundraising events, two of which will take part in San Pedro Town. The events are tentatively to be held at Ramon’s Village Resort and Captain Morgan’s Retreat, and the public will be notified of the details in the near future.

Many people do not have the slightest idea what these ladies do everyday preparing for an international event as big as this. It is considered one of the biggest events broadcast on NBC’s television network, with over a billion viewers. The Miss Universe contest is not won just on looks; women who aspire to become contestants on Miss Universe must be intelligent, well mannered and cultured. Not only does Miss Elrington represent our country, but she is also making other countries aware of this beautiful Caribbean Jewel. Belize has always been an under dog in these pageants, but this year we are keeping our fingers crossed hoping that we are judged fairly and given a chance to be evaluated into further rounds.

Miss Andrea is of slim build, standing about 5 feet 11 inches tall. She is planning on enrolling into the University of Southern California to earn her Master’s in Communications. She is currently attending a university in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the newspaper chief editor on campus. Her favorite pastimes includes reading, traveling and listening to Latin and Jazz music.

You can catch the live broadcast of the pageant on NBC and Telemundo on May 31st, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The San Pedro Sun wishes Miss Andrea all the best of luck in her journey and we do not doubt that she will exemplify all that Belize is with all her pride and dignity.
