Isela Duran

The country of Belize is well known for its beautiful women. Next Friday evening, San Pedro beauty Isela Duran will represent "La Isla Bonita" in competition for the prized title of Miss Belize 2003. 

    A resident of the island for the past two years, Miss Duran majored in business at St. John's College (SJC), and studied cosmetology at Capital College in Omaha, USA. This 23 year-old businesswoman has a background in biology, chemistry and computers. She plans to  own her own cosmetology business someday.

    Isela Duran is not only educated, but also has pageant experience. She entered her first pageant in college, competing for the title Miss SJC, and was also crowned Miss Belize City Lions Queen in 1998. In addition to competing in these pageants, she is also featured in this year's Belikin Swimsuit Calendar.

    A native of Belize City, Miss Duran's interests include becoming a dive instructor, reading suspense novels and styling hair.

   In regards to competing, Miss Duran states she was greatly influenced by her father, who was very supportive and let her know that she "could do anything" if she "put her mind to it."

    The Miss Belize Pageant Committee Chairwoman, Carolyn Sandiford-Tench only recently informed Miss Duran, that she was nominated to participate in this year's pageant. She is currently seeking sponsorship for the event and may be contacted at 226-4660. Selection is based on appearance, education, eloquence and past experience in beauty pageants. The Miss Belize pageant will be held Friday, June 27th, 2003 at the Belize City Center.

    On behalf of the Ambergris Caye community, The San Pedro Sun wishes Isela the best of luck in this prestigious competition.
