"Today our beautiful Chanelle de Lau, Miss Curaçao 2016 travels to the Philippines to participate in the Miss Universe pageant on January 29th, where over 90 countries will be competing for the crown.
Having met Chanelle in person I can say that I am truly impressed by our candidate; her eloquence, intelligence, wit and beauty, both inside and out. A true ambassador for our country; speaking her languages fluently, reflecting the colourful diversity of our dushi Curaçao. Also the way in which she carries herself gives me great confidence that 'our girl' will score big time with the judges and everybody she will meet on this journey half way across the world.
We are so proud of you Chanelle, and we will be rooting for you every step of the way. Hopi eksito!"
