Destiny Wagner of Belize has been crowned Miss Earth 2021 in a virtual Grand Coronation Day on Nov. 21.
The 25-year-old beauty queen was the first runner-up of Miss Universe Belize 2019 and represented her home country for the virtual Miss Earth 2021 pageant.
"I feel a bunch of emotions right now," she said. "My country has never placed in Miss Earth before nor have we ever had an international crown. So right now, this is what we needed. The words and the gratitude, they're very hard to express."
