23 year-old Rebecca Rath is not your usual pageant-patty of a beauty queen. She grew up amidst a coastal town where the tropical rainforest is just a stone’s throw away from home. She is not molded into beauty contests, more like a warrior volleyball player, tomboy and perhaps among the least likely to be enamored by the world of modelling. But as a titleholder, she puts her love for Belize on the forefront and keeps an eye on the more significant aspects of her reign.
There is something special about Rebecca Rath, a quality that makes her unique among the ladies vying for the 65th Miss Universe crown. She defines natural in a homegrown kind of way – and that could endear her to the Filipinos in a breeze.
Do you think Rebecca could be a scene-stealer in the competition?
