Shiemicka Richardson

Last week Friday, Miss Shiemicka La-Shanne Richardson stole the hearts of the judges and was crowned Miss Belize 2000. The pageant was held at the Civic Center in Belmopan where hundreds witnessed this glamorous event. Five contestants vied for the title and made their presentations in casual, cultural, swimsuit and evening wear. A question and answer session followed.

    Miss Richardson has returned to New York, where she resides, to immediately continue training for the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant. Shiemicka feels confident that she will make Belize proud by being one of the top ten semi-finalists of this Pageant to be held May 12th in Cyprus. Shiemicka has two years of modeling and acting experience which she feels adds to her chances of being a semi-finalist. Miss Belize left the country with a $1500 cash prize and luggage outfit. Shiemicka enjoyed her new friendships with the other contestants so much, she decided to split the remaining prizes with them.

    Shiemicka Richardson will be making a special appearance on the CBS morning show on April 10th along with the rest of the candidates of Miss Universe. She leaves for Cyprus on April 17th. First runner-up was Miss Elizabeth Rosado and second runner-up, Miss Shari Williams.
