Costa Rica Entertainment – Natalia Carvajal is our Miss Costa Rica 2018.
The 27-year-old TV host, publicist and literature student took the crown at a gala held by Teletica on Friday, April 27, at the Marco Picado studio.
Larissa Sanco came in second and Raquel Castro third. They competed in swimsuits, nightwear and a personality test. In all three sections, Carvajal placed first. The jury was made up of a singer, fashion expert, designer, dentist and photographer.
Natalia captured them with her answer about what the characteristic of a successful woman is. She spoke of determination and pursuing dreams. “Life is not easy. We have to pursue what we seek,” she said.
She is new to beauty pageants, with only one contest behind her, Miss Eco Universe 2016, where she was crowned in Egypt. She describes herself as a “chameleon” and innately adventurous.
