There is a clamor to give the focus on relatively less-hyped Latinas competing in the 65th Miss Universe. And so, we now have Miss Nicaragua Marina Eugenia Jacoby Santos as our 20th feature in our watch.
Marina is 21 years old and stands 5’11”. She is a professional model from Matagalpa who paid her dues in pageantry by going through both the Miss Teen Nicaragua and Miss Teen Universe competitions back in 2011 before finally hitting the big league by being crowned as her nation’s Manila-bound delegate this month.
An anti-bullying advocate, Marina is against all forms of harrassment. “I want to make kids raise their self-esteem so they can develop their potential.”Marina’s handlers and supporters are hoping that the 65th Miss Universe will recognize their bet’s wonderful merits and go beyond the weak sash impact – a concern that affects countries of less popular participation in our favorite beauty contest.
Will Marina beat the odds and come out a winner?
Share your impressions of Miss Nicaragua, dear readers.
