On being crowned Miss Earth 2021, Destiny had expressed, “My country has never placed at Miss Earth before nor have we ever had an international crown. So right now, this is what we needed and I am happy to represent such a gorgeous country. I am overwhelmed right now with emotions. The words and the gratitude, it’s very hard to express. But I am thankful. I am thankful for the Miss Earth Organization and thankful for my team as well.”

It is the first Big4 international beauty pageants win for Belize. Destiny’s historic win is a huge moment for the country as well as the diva as she became the first woman of colour to win Miss Earth. The crowning also marked the first Miss Earth win for National Directors Margaret R. Johnson and Sarita Acosta.
