Belgica Suarez is Miss Honduras Universe 2009
We earlier reported here that Honduras might skip the Miss Universe 2009 pageant due to the current political situation in this Central American country. But instead of holding a national pageant, the organizer handpicked their candidate. Belgica Suarez was lucky to be chosen.
For getting the title of Miss Honduras Universe 2009, 23 year-old Belgica will be going to Bahamas to compete for the 58th edition of the pageant.
Belgica said in an interview that "at this moment of crisis in Honduras, it is her responsibility to be an ambassador of culture and awareness of the positive aspects of her country."
The 5'11" tall beauty queen was last year's First Runner-up at the Miss Honduras Universe.
The scheduled Miss Honduras Universe 2009 on July 25th was cancelled.
