A Hispanic will represent British Virgin Islands in Miss Universe 2010

21-year old Josephina Nuñez is the representative of British Virgin Islands to Miss Universe 2010. She was crowned in August 3 last year. She is a student of Hotel Management.

During her national pageant, Nuñez bagged several special awards like best talent award, best evening wear, best cultural wear, Miss poised and Miss popularity.

When the beauty queen won the right to represent British Virgin Islands in Miss Universe, she faced a lot of criticisms because of her ethnicity. She was born in the Dominican Republic but grew up in Tortola. She was deemed unfit as an ambassador of this Caribbean territory.

This is a challenge for Josephina come Miss Universe 2010.
