Dalila Vanzie in China

Press Release - Sanya, China - November 26, 2003 - Miss Belize World, Dalila Vanzie and the rest of the Miss World delegates are back in Sanya on the island of Hainan, China. This marks the end of their tour of China and the start of the exciting countdown to the finals this Saturday, December 6th. Since arriving in Sanya, Dalila has been interviewed for the Miss World Scholarship Award, auditioned for the Talent Award, and also participated in the Beach Wear competition. She apparently did very well in the scholarship interview and her interviewers were very surprised at her "down-to-earth" nature, given her number of accomplishments at such a young age. Her karaoke rendition of "La Isla Bonita" was met with loud applause and it is felt that she has a very good chance of making the Talent Award Finals (held last Friday, November 28th). The results of the beachwear competition will not be known until the Finals Night on December 6th. Her big test comes this week when she faces the judges in an extended interview in which she appears in her evening gown.

    Dalila continues to make Belize proud in Sanya. HongKongBeauties.com, another highly respected pageant web site, in their last evaluation of the delegates, gave her 3 stars (only four other delegates received a higher ranking) and commented: ".... A delegate (that) needs to be watched (out) for. She is very well-spoken, intelligent, and well-educated. She's also a great singer! She is probably the best representative from Belize ever!"

    This weekend, the Miss World UDecide Program kicks off. It will be aired live on Sky One TV from England, Televisa from Mexico and TV J from Jamaica. All are urged to tune into these channels if carried by local cable operators and also to visit Dalila's web sites at http://www.missbelizeworld.com, http://www.dalilavanzie.com and http://www.missbelize.bz for exciting up-to-the-minute news, updates and to cast their vote. There are now two voting options available: online voting (using a credit card and costing US$1.69 per vote) and telephone voting. You can vote as many times as you like (and you are also urged to encourage your family and friends abroad to vote for Dalila). The web site(s) will provide instructions for you on what to do.

    Note: Local time in Sanya, China is 14 hours ahead of Central Standard Time (which is the same as local time in Belize).
