Today the Miss Earth Belize Organization, through director Michael Arnold, announced that Chantae Chanice Guy of Belmopan, Cayo was selected to represent Belize at Miss Earth 2016.

Chantae is a 24 year-old model and student and is no stranger to the pageant world. She previously represented Belize at Miss World 2012 in Ordos, China PR where she placed Top 10 in the Top Model challenge event (Belize's first and so far only such achievement). A month later, Chantae represented Belize at Miss Continente Americano 2012 (now known as Miss United Continents) in Ecuador.

The 5'10" (1.78m) beauty has a degree in Mathematics and is pursuing a degree in Business Science. In her down time, she enjoys exercising, traveling, swimming, and takes time for community service. Her motto is, "Be the change you want to see. Go green and keep it clean."

During her reign, she will be advocating for the protection of our Belizean environment and also focusing on climate change. For the Miss Earth pageant, her national costume will pay homage to our Belizean rainforests and jaguars. The Miss Earth 2016 pageant will run from October 6 - 31st, 2016 in the Philippines.

We wish her all the best as she represents the Jewel in the Philippines.
