18-year-old Yosibell Sánchez Espino is the proud representative for Panama at the 2010 Reina de la Costa Maya pageant. The beautiful dark-eyed brunette is a determined young woman who is looking forward to her participation at the pageant. She was asked what she wants to do in life, and while she considered it the most difficult question she has ever been asked, she does know she has one major goal, and that is to put her efforts to protect and save our wildlife. As part of “Fundacion MarViva”, a non-government and non-profit organization, Yosibell has found a way to speak out for those who can’t speak for themselves: the animals (wildlife).
Yosibell will be gracing the stage on Thursday, August 5th, 2010 by delegates from Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. One of them will be walking away with the crown currently held by the stunning Maritza Rivas of Nicaragua.
