Kelly Weekers, aged 21 and representing Limburg was crowned Miss Universe Netherlands 2011 together with two other ladies – Jill de Robles and Jill Duijves – who were chosen as Miss World Netherlands and Miss Earth Netherlands, respectively.
Kelly, very tall at 1.80m, is currently in her Junior year taking up Psychology at the University of Maastricht. She started working as a fashion model at the age of 15, but aims to become a Master in Child and Youth Psychopathology in the future. At the moment, though, she is neck-deep in preparations for her trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil next month.
How far will fate bring Kelly in the competition? Hard to tell if she will do an Angela Visser or a Pauline Huizinga or at least a Nancy Neede, given the outstandingly tough field, but she’ll definitely give it her best shot.
