The organization of Miss Mundo Dominicana hosted the coronation for 2021 edition on 4th September 2021 at the Barceló Grand Resort in Punta Cana, where 25 candidates participated in various competitions that integrated both their physical and mental dexterity. Emmy Peña, the representative of the Duarte province was crowned Miss Mundo Dominicana 2021 at the end of the event. Emmy succeeds Miss Mundo Dominicana 2019 Alba Marie Blair Rodríguez for the title and will represent Dominican Republic at Miss World 2021.

Hailing from Duarte, Emmy is a 24 year-old professional model signed with EMG Models in New York, United States. She was also a part of the Spanish film “Donde Quiera Que Vayas” (Wherever You Go), which was filmed in New York and released in June 2016.

For her Beauty With Purpose project, the diva took to her social media to share, ““Miss Mundo Dominicana has the motto # BellezaConPropósito opening the doors for me to be the voice of those people who need to be loved and included in our society. Participating in a beauty contest that not only recognizes your appearance, but also values ??your essence and sense of humanity in style, is what I appreciate the most about this project.”



She added, “My purpose is that we lovingly celebrate the diversity of our people, especially those with Down syndrome; that we educate ourselves to destroy prejudices and myths that only have life in our minds. That is the true disease and condition that limits us. From them I learned that true happiness and the meaning of life is in the things that we think are insignificant: a genuine smile, a sincere look and a heart that has no measures to love.”

Emmy will represent Dominican Republic at the upcoming edition of Miss World pageant. She is experienced, stunning, confident and definitely a strong contender to represent Dominicans. Miss World 2021 will be the 70th edition of the Miss World pageant to be held on December 16, 2021 at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica will crown her successor at the end of the event.
