at the Belize City
Center. The 2004-2005 Queen of the Bay title went to Miss Sherima Usher
of Stann Creek District.
From start to finish, Dilcia Trejo won the hearts of
the audience, putting San Pedro in the top five semi-finalists. All
smiles throughout the night, lovely Miss Trejo wowed the crowd during all
parts of the competition. For the talent segment, Dilcia enlightened the
audience with the true meaning of patriotism as she performed a monologue
entitled, "The Flag of the Free." For this portion of the event, Miss
Trejo donned a red and blue flowing outfit, accented by the Belizean flag
flying freely from her left arm. She very eloquently paid homage to the
flag as she described the meaning of its colors and emblem. Dilcia also
paid tribute to our forefathers for their valiance and honor as they
fought for our rights.
The thunderous sounds of trumpets then echoed
throughout the City Center to announce the arrival of the reigning queen
as she took her rightful place on the throne. Escorted by trumpeters and
"paper boys," (Queen's servants) the lovely Shajira Sajia gave her
farewell speech, thanking the pageant committee and all those who
supported her during her past year of service.
During the formal segment, Dilica's beauty was
accented by a stunning white gown, and that smile that seemed to
illuminate the stage. Dilcia was indeed the true picture of a beauty
queen looking quite regal and majestic as she curtsied to her
Graciousness, Queen of the Bay, Shajira Sajia and then to the audience.
Talented Belizean singer Dejon Tucker then serenaded
the delegates with the pageant's theme song "Beautiful Queen of the Bay."
Prior to the winner being announced, Sherima Usher of Stann Creek was
voted Miss Amity, and Darena Rodriguez of Sandhill was voted Miss
Photogenic. It was then the moment of truth as the mistresses of
ceremonies were ready to name the top three winners. The crowd went
silent as they anxiously awaited the results. And then, the announcement
came, "Second runner up, Miss Jasmine Anderson of Placencia; First runner
up from ‘La Isla Bonita' Miss Dilcia Trejo; and the Queen of the Bay
designate Miss Sherima Usher of Stann Creek!"
Through this medium, Miss San Pedro Queen
