Miss Earth Belize 2015, Christine Syme, has been asked many questions over the past few weeks and has written a little about herself and what will be happening during the weeks leading up to the pageant.
“I am Christine Syme, Miss Earth Belize 2015 and I was born and raised on the island of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. I grew up building sand castles, catching fish, and going to primary and secondary school overlooking the Barrier Reef. I have always been interested in modeling and pageants, participating in my first pageant, Miss San Pedro in 2011, where I won First Runner Up and Miss Congeniality. I have also participated in many fashion shows, including the first Belize Fashion Week runway show where I modeled clothes made by Belizean designers as well as international designers from New York City and the Dominican Republic.
I am ecstatic about representing Belize internationally at the Miss Earth pageant in Austria and I thank everyone for their support and encouragement. I believe that I will do a fantastic job promoting our environment, natural resources and ecosystems as well as the efforts we are making towards preserving and protecting them. Ever since I was about 10 years old I remember joining work teams that picked up trash in our community, planted nice foliage and distributed trash cans, immediately I could see how much more attractive our area would become.
I am seeking support from the communities throughout Belize. Monetary donations will go towards my plane ticket, wardrobe for the two weeks that I will be attending the pageant, photo and video shoots and a national costume. I will ensure that Belize is well represented. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to donate. This Sunday I will be fundraising at Caribbean Villas Resort, in San Pedro and all of the proceeds from the water slide will go towards my Miss Earth journey. I hope to see you all there.
This Friday, I will be volunteering with the Raise Me Up - San Pedro Food Bank, join us every Friday at the Lion’s Den from 3:30pm - 5:30pm. Each week Raise Me Up - San Pedro Food Bank provides Rice, Beans, Flour, Powdered Milk, Cereal and a $10 coupon to Lino’s for meat, they desperately need your help, no donation is too small.
I am honored and humbled to be representing Belize in this international event and being the beauty ambassador for our precious jewel. Thank you all for putting your faith in me.”
