We got to know a bit more about the four lovely contestants, and here’s what they have to share:
Miss SPHigh CandidatesErica Bodden: I am 15-year-old Erica Bodden, currently attending San Pedro High School.I am from the class of 2C.

My future goal is to be an archeologist.

My future career is to become a pediatrician, helping all the children with all my efforts and as much as I can. I also want to grow into a positive role model for the society and the future generations of Belize.
Ezra Jailene Jacobs:I am Ezra Jailene Jacobs, I’m 14-years-old. I was born on the beautiful island of San Pedro on August 17, 1999. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my sparetime I love going to the beach, either with friends or alone. I am representing the class of 1K. My plans are to graduate from college and continue studying so I can be a successful journalist, as I love to read and write. Nothing in this world is hard, my mom always tells me this; “Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
I would like to thank my sponsors San Pedro High School and Varela’s Lumber Yard, this pageant has really changed me and I just want to say good luck to all contestants! Thank you!

My dream is to become an international female detective. I’ve had a wonderful experience since I’ve entered this pageant. I am inspired to continue in pageantry, and someday I hope to be Miss Costa Maya. I couldn’t have done this pageant without all my supporters, especially Castillo’s Hardware. My supporters include Wild Mango’s, La Divina Providencia, Mr. Angel Nunez, Victoria House, Royal Caribbean Villas, Black and White Entertainment and Cultural Center, Bella Italia, and LAG Security.
