Mariam Habach Santucci, Miss Venezuela Universo 2015, has waited long enough for her turn to take the spotlight in the global pageant stage. In fact, she won the national crown last October 8, 2015 even before Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach would be named Miss Universe in Las Vegas. This beautiful dental student – with Syrian and Italian descent – speaks four languages (English, Spanish, Arabic and Italian) which she intends to put into good use abroad.
Now, the 20 year-old (she will turn 21 on January 26, a few days before the big finals in Manila) from Lara will be getting her chance in the 65th Miss Universe. Mentor Osmel Sousa has made sure that this 6-footer is at her premium best for the competition. And I am sure that Mariam has been fully trained especially on how to work the Philippines during her upcoming stint. Filipinos love Venezuelan beauties in general. And she will test her Gabriela Isler-ish charm side by side the other hyped entries of the competition.

Your thoughts on Mariam Habach Santucci, dear readers? She may not be your idea of the traditional Venezuelan Goddesses who have taken part in several editions of Miss Universe in the past. But methinks the Filipinos will like her, especially if her actual personality is as winning as what pre-arrival impressions suggest. 🙂
