Miss Nicaragua is under the franchise of SILHUETAS, the much distinguished modeling agency. The pageant has been held since 1955 and is liable for selecting the country’s representatives to Miss Universe and Miss International. Despite of having had only three placements at Miss Universe through semifinalists, Nicaragua has done well in other international beauty pageants.
This year the contestants were projected to many varieties of photoshoots and runway trainings, along with a series of training in communication skills, hence it might be possible that Nicaragua might perform well at international platforms in 2016. Do you think the newly crowned beauty queen, Marina Jacoby will earn Nicaragua a placement at Miss Universe 2016?
