At the final night of Miss, World Nicaragua held on 4th November 2017 at the Sala Mayor of the Rubén Darío National Theater, Nicaragua, Yoselin Sobeyda Gómez from Boaco was declared the winner and was crowned by the first finalist of Miss World Nicaragua 2017, María Leonela Cerda. She will now represent Nicaragua in Miss World 2018 scheduled to take place next year.

Yoselin Sobeyda Gómez is from San Lorenzo, Boaco. She is 21 years old and graduated from the civil engineering faculty of UNI-Juigalpa. In her spare time, she likes to give Zumba classes and do Yoga. She sings in the choir of a Catholic Church in Tecolostote, coordinates the youth ministry Juan PabloII in a church of her town and also likes to listen to music.

Just after her crowning, the new queen could stop herself from expressing her happiness, “Miss World Nicaragua is defined as a young woman who does not give up, fights for her goals shows herself to be strong, and is a successful person. Everyone loves her because she offers her sincere friendship. I thank God, my family and friends, for the support they have given me."

A big controversy took place just after her crowning when she was hugely trolled for wearing the same dress as worn by Miss World Canada, Paola Núñez in 2015. This young queen handled the whole incidence very bravely. In the face of the accusations, she said that a dress does not make a queen and that the piece of sequins she wore is that of a Dominican designer. She insisted that instead of focusing on the negative comments, the Nicaraguans should come together to support the beauty and intelligence of the country's women. "A dress does not make a queen, but her performance and attitude and that's what I have," she expressed on the whole debacle.

Her court included –

Second runner-up - Junieth Portobanco

Third runner-up - Silgian Larios

Fourth runner-up - Sarahí Fuentes
