This Monday, Miss Universe’s pre-Colombian representative Miss Laura Olascuaga has crowned Barranquilla after former Miss Atlantico. Natalie Ackerman will take over the franchise and deprive the National Beauty Pageant of the right to send candidates to international competitions.
Olascuaga, 1.80 m tall, born 25 years ago in Cartagena, Bolivar, is a journalist and social communicator at Norte University in Barranquilla. His grandparents are from San Juan (Huila) and in some interviews he recognized himself that way.
Currently, Miss Colombia already has experience with these competitions because she participated in the 2018 National Beauty Competitions when she was vice-king.. At that time, Gabriela Tafur of Valle del Cauca wore the crown of Miss Colombia. However, a few days later Olascuaga resigned from his post as head of the Bolívar department. At the time, he said it was for personal reasons.
In her Instagram story, she was asked why she resigned from the title of governor and responded with an image of cutting her wings with scissors.. However, Cartagena said in her casting to participate in Miss Universe Colombia that she had two goals to continue her career: being a Miss Colombia she did not achieve at the time. He said in the title, “But I never gave up my followers, those who believe in me, my department.”
After doing all the filters, Laura took the place of Miss Bolívar on October 12 of this year and talked about her past experiences. “The second opportunity is a reflection of the patience, persistence, and determination that permeate the dream. Today I start a new chapter to inspire and demonstrate the great pride that I feel as a Bolivian woman and Colombian. From this moment on, I ratify my dedication and dedication to this work, which is the dream of thousands of Colombian women and the mission of my life,” she wrote to her Instagram account that day.
On Monday night, 16 finalists were selected: Casanare, Atlántico, Huila, Cartagena, Norte de Santander, Cesar, Amazonas, Caldas, Valle del Cauca, Bolivar, Antioquia, Nariño, Meta, Santander, and Quindío were the people with the most votes from the public.
After that, six finalists were selected to answer questions from the jury. Jenifer Pulgarín, Norte de Santander; Barbara Rodríguez, Cauca; Yeraldine Grajales, Quindio; Laura Olascuaga, Bolívar; Laura Lamus, Santander and Dayana Cárdenas of Cabildo Encanto Amazonas.
Santander, Norte de Santander, and Bolívar took third place. Finally, Laura lascuaga became Miss Colombia and will represent the country in an international competition that has not yet been dated.
