Not new to the pageant world, Palacios started into the world of pageantry in 2016 when she won Miss Teen Nicaragua 2016. As Miss Teen Nicaragua 2016, Palacios represented her country in Miss Teen Universe 2017, in Managua where she placed in Top 10.

In 2020, Palacios won the Miss World Nicaragua 2020 crown as she won the right to represent Nicaragua at Miss World. Moreover, Palacios was supposed to compete in the Reinado Internacional del Café 2022 but could not because she tested positive for Covid-19.



With her experience, her stunning beauty and her oratory skills, Palacios will definitely be a strong contender for Miss World 2021 crown. If she wins Miss World 2021, Sheynnis will pioneer her country’s win at the competition.
