San Pedro has annually selected a young lady to serve as its beauty ambassador.
Many deserving young women have held the prestigious title of Miss San Pedro and
have done a fantastic job performing at and/or attending community functions
during their reign. Aside from the physical beauty, it is inner beauty that sets
these ladies apart from others. This could not be more obvious than in the case
of the current Miss San Pedro who has been gifted with the qualities of a true
queen - Miss Dilcia Danelli Trejo.
11th, 1983, Mirza and Roberto
Trejo (deceased) celebrated the birth of their baby girl, Dilcia Danelli. Dilcia
grew up in San Pedro with her brother Roberto Jr., showered by the love of a
close-knit family. Although always surrounded by cousins and friends, Dilcia was
quite shy and preferred to stay close to her mother and brother. At a very young
age, Dilcia discovered a wealth of information in books and was fascinated with
the knowledge they provided her. This "good habit" aided Dilcia with her studies
while in elementary school and San Pedro High School, where she graduated with
honors as an academic student in 1999. Following this, Miss Trejo moved to
Belize City where she attended St. Johns College Junior College. She majored in
Chemistry and Biology while at this institute, graduating with honors in 2001.
Upon her return to San Pedro, Dilcia was hired as a cashier by Belize
Electricity Limited; a job she has retained until now.
Throughout the years, as Dilcia shed her timid skin she developed into a
beautiful, intelligent and outgoing young woman. These qualities prompted the
organizers of the Miss San Pedro Pageant to ask her to be a contestant. After
talking it over with her family, Dilcia decided to compete in the 2001-2002 Miss
San Pedro Pageant held last September. "I decided to enter this pageant to gain
more experience in modeling which is a career I want to pursue, and to rid
myself of a fear of public speaking," stated Dilcia. Miss Trejo was flawless
during the pageant and by the end of the night she walked away with the title of
Miss San Pedro, Miss Amity and Miss Photogenic.
lovely Dilcia Trejo has kept busy fulfilling her duties as Miss San Pedro. What
is most admirable about this young lady is that she gives freely of her time to
the community, making appearances as a goodwill ambassador by serving her town's
public at a variety of functions. Whether it is her participation with the San
Pedro Lions Club at the Annual Senior Citizens Dinner or during the Club's
Christmas Caroling, or picking a winning ticket at a local supermarket, she is
always willing to do her part. Dilcia told The
San Pedro Sun
that she wants to take advantage of her time as Miss San Pedro to make people
aware of the problems affecting the youth, and to educate the community about
the growing problems facing the younger generation.
Dilcia finishes work at BEL and is not engaged in some social function she
devotes time to her brother Roberto, who was diagnosed with microcephaly at
birth. She also enjoys listening to music and reading. In the near future,
Dilcia hopes to travel abroad to further her education.
Dilcia Danelli Trejo has been able to properly balance the weight of all the
responsibilities she carries on her shoulders. She is a devoted employee, a
loving sister, an exemplary daughter, and a most worthy representative of the
people of "La Isla Bonita". Because of her wonderful qualities, Dilcia Trejo has
certainly earned her right to sit on the "throne" of "Our Community".
