On August 24, 2013, 21-year-old Miss Amber Reneé Rivero was crowned Miss Earth Belize, and this coming Saturday, November 9, Amber will depart the country for the first leg of her journey as the formal Environmental Ambassador of Belize.
En route to Manila, Philippines, Amber leaves Belize and heads to Miami, Florida, for a few days, where she will undergo final training for the pageant.
The journey continues on Thursday, November 14, when she leaves Miami for Manila. Upon arriving in the Philippines, Miss Rivero will participate in a number of preliminary competitions before the date of the actual pageant, which includes a swimsuit and a costume competition.
In light of the actual Miss Earth International theme “International Year of Water Cooperation”, Miss Rivero will model a costume depicting one of the greatest features of the Earth, The Belize Blue Hole.
Furthermore, for the first time, this year Belize will take part in the Miss Earth International Talent Competition. Amber intends to wow the judges with a rendition of a piece on the violin called ‘Romanza’, which was composed by our very own Governor General of Belize, Sir Colville Young.
In Miss Rivero’s acceptance speech, she shared her delight of having the opportunity to make a difference in Belize; however, she is only the spark. Miss Amber Rivero needs the support of you, her fellow Belizeans. Every affirming word makes a world of a difference.
