With a seemingly perpetual smile and an upbeat attitude, reigning Miss New Jersey USA, Libell Duran, finally found beauty pageant glory last year. The Dominican beauty competed numerous times for the Garden State crown. Finally, it came together last October. Previously coming up short in the Miss New Jersey and Miss Dominican Republic pageants did not frustrate this beauty queen, as she always believed better times were ahead.
With a little more than a month left in her reign as Miss New Jersey USA 2013, the 22 year old William Patterson University student sat down with us to reflect about her year as the queen of the Garden State, what is ahead for her future and how she became good friends with past CYInterview guest, the now former Miss Florida USA, Michelle Aguirre, at the Miss USA pageant – among many other topics.
Last month, we introduced you to the reigning Miss Florida USA, Michelle Aguirre [see here]. It has been ten months since the blonde Cuban beauty won the coveted title. This past weekend, she held her going away party at the Academy of Glam in Cooper City before heading off to compete for the Miss USA crown, at the end of the month, in Las Vegas.
Michelle partied the night away with her family, friends and fellow beauty queens from across the state including Miss. Ft Walton Beach Teen USA Savannah Tanney, Miss Capital City USA Caitlin Harrison, Miss Coral Gables USA Linette De Los Santos and Miss Hollywood USA Ashli Marie Wright.
Michelle Aguirre’s current reign as Miss Florida was a bit unexpected. It has been only a few years since she decided to give the beauty pageant circuit a try. Now, she is only one pageant away from being Miss USA. The blonde Cuban beauty will have had 11 months to think about her game plan for taking the national title, prior to heading to Las Vegas for Miss USA in June.
We saw Michelle earlier this month at the Miami Heels store opening [see here] and we now bring you our CYInterview with her.
