SPOTLIGHT: Miss Nicaragua 2022 Norma Huembes - 'I want to be the face that brings joy and excitement to Nicaraguans'

Nicaragua will be represented at the 71st Miss Universe edition (Miss Universe 2022) by Norma Huembes, a 24-year-old public accountant from San Marcos, Carazo.

Set between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, the Central American country is known for its dramatic terrain of lakes, volcanoes and beaches.

Since its Miss Universe debut in 1955, only four women successfully placed in the competition courtesy of Beatriz Obregón in 1977 (Top 12), Xiomara Blandino in 2007 (Top 10), Nastassja Bolívar in 2013 (Top 16), and Ana Marcelo in 2020 (Top 21).

This year's Miss Nicaragua / Miss Universe Nicaragua, who won her national title on August 6, is preparing to win her country's first Miss Universe later this year.

In her own words, "I want to be the face that brings joy and excitement to Nicaraguans."

After winning her national pageant, Norma took to social media and wrote in Spanish: "Thank you is the key word for this whole experience that I am living at this moment. I thank God for leading me down this path, my family and friends for accompanying me since before I started this dream, my beloved town of San Marcos, and all those who have supported me."

The 5-foot-8-inch stunner is wearing a beautiful creation by Nicaraguan fashion designer Jared Bermúdez in her latest photos released by Miss Nicaragua.

The Miss Universe Organization has yet to announce the official date and host country for this year's Miss Universe edition.
