Andrei´na Martínez, who was supposed to represent Dominican Republic at Miss Universe 2021, is now preparing for her stint at Miss Universe 2022. Andrei´na had to withdraw her participation from the 2021 edition because she was diagnosed positive for Covid 19 a week before the competition. First runner-up Debbie Aflalo replaced her and represented Dominican Republic at Miss Universe 2021.

She was 24 years old when she was crowned Miss Universe Dominican Republic 2021 but unfortunately could not represent her country at Miss Universe 2021. However, Andrei´na will definitely be a strong contender for the international crown if she continues her preparation with the same sincerity and dedication.
