Miss Universe Curacao 2022 is Gabriela Dos Santos

Gabriela Dos Santos was crowned Miss Universe Curacao 2022 in a glittering event held at Renaissance Wind Creek Curacao Resort in Willemstad on Saturday, May 28.

The 20-year-old beauty from Willemstad edged out two other finalists to win her national title. She succeeds last year's titleholder, Shariengela Cijntje.

Mariana Pietersz and Andreina Pereira were named the first and second runners-up, respectively.

Former Miss Universe Colombia and Miss Universe Top 5 finalist Valeria Ayos, and Miss Universe Colombia national director Natalie Ackerman were special guests at the recently held competition.

The new Miss Universe Curacao will now prepare to represent Curacao at the 71st Miss Universe (Miss Universe 2022) pageant, whose date and venue have yet to be announced.

Gabriela founded the Light4change foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to raise awareness against cyberbullying.

Curacao, a Dutch Caribbean island known for its beaches, has yet to win the Miss Universe pageant. Its highest placement was first runner-up in 1968 with Annemarie Braafheid.
