Six charming young island beauties have signed up to compete for the title of Miss San Pedro 2006-2007. The pageant, held under the auspices of the San Pedro Town Council, has been scheduled for September 2nd at the Old Football Field. In honor of Belize’s 25th year of independence the pageant will have a very patriotic theme. Vying for the coveted title and crown are six beautiful young ladies (along their sponsors); Katrina Bradley (Victoria House), Liliana Nuñez (Alliance Bank Limited), Jamira Craft (Fido’s Courtyard), Candy Bradley (Ramon’s Village Resort), Amber Ayala (Jaguar’s Temple), and Amalia Cal (Castillo’s Hardware). The pageant committee, headed by Felix Ayuso, is working on every minute detail for the event to ensure that the audience is swept away by the glamour and elegance that will be showcased that evening.

    The San Pedro Sun had the pleasure of meeting with the six young women.


Katrina Bradley

Katrina Bradley is an 18-year-old student of Saint John’s Junior College where she is majoring in Arts which include History and Literature. She plans on furthering her studies and getting into Corporate Law and become an intern at New York City’s McIntosh Corporation.

Q: Why would you like the opportunity to represent the island?
A: Fore mostly, I would like the opportunity to represent San Pedro because it presents many rewarding opportunities such as: meeting new people; becoming a mature leader, someone at whom people can look up and admire as well as appreciate as an ambassador of our island. Secondly, it also allows me to showcase that someone can have outer and inner beauty at the same time – that whatever you have on the inside will surely shine or reflect on the outside. Lastly, I am a firm believer of women and independence, and this is one of the few events that women are granted the opportunity to reveal that we can be headstrong leaders and make a difference in La Isla Bonita, Belize and perhaps even the world.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I enjoy time with my friends and family, swimming, dancing, reading, meditating and yoga and I recently took up scuba diving.
Q: Who would you consider as your role model?
A: Truthfully, I do not have a definitive role model. I solely live by the principle that a person is in your life for a reason, season, or lifetime. Every person in my life – close relatives, friends, whoever it may be – influences my life immensely in some way or another. Every person who comes into my life leaves an imprint – the way of learning and searching for whom you want to be. It’s nice to be able to take bits and pieces of all your loved ones and stick them together and mold your character from that.
Q: In your short years, what is the biggest lesson you have learned?
A: I have learned not to be the slave of the past or of judgment. There is only one man who can judge and that is God – therefore be happy with who you are and let that be your utmost importance. We learn and gain knowledge from the past to continue living in the present and gear up for the future.
Q: How would you like to be remembered?
A: Ultimately I would like to be remembered as a unique, enthusiastic, responsible, intelligent, beautiful- natured, and vibrant intellect that passionately loves her home and wants the best for it.
