Miss San Pedro, Yakarelis Hernandez, came back to San Pedro over the weekend after her brief trip to Nicaragua where she is applying at various universities. She is ready to further her studies but is also sticking to her commitments as Miss San Pedro during her reigning year.
Immediately after arriving on the island Yakarelis’ first commitment was participating in the Mama Vilma Family Home Fashion Fundraiser; she volunteered her time to a worthy cause. Next up for Miss San Pedro are the Carnival Festivities coming up on February 18 to 21.
Yakarelis took time to visit Ambergris Today to record this short video message to thank everybody who showed support during the time when rumors were circulating that she was being stripped of her title as Miss San Pedro for traveling outside the country to further her studies. She is very grateful for all the messages of support and well-wishes.
