71st Miss Universe: Curacao back to competition after COVID-19 infection


Miss Universe Curacao Gabriëla Dos Santos has finally been able to return to the 71st Miss Universe competition following her ordeal with COVID-19 infection.

The 20-year-old certified life coach had to be put under quarantine when she tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after her arrival in New Orleans for the international pageant.

Despite not knowing if she will be able to make it back to the competition, the beauty queen remained optimistic amid her unfortunate situation.

She said: "These moments of difficulty should motivate us to become even stronger. It is challenging, but I chose to look at the silver lining and accept that life is full of unexpected twists and turns."

"No matter what comes our way, we must never give up on ourselves or our dreams. I feel empowered knowing that I'm stronger than any challenge and ready to conquer anything," she added.

Gabriëla was allowed to join her fellow contestants and continue her fight for her Miss Universe dream after her test for COVID-19 finally came back negative.
