hair and was even called ugly. But today she looks amazingly beautiful
and its hair which give a special flavor to her appeal.

We must admit that she is undeniably a very strong contestant and is very likely to advance to Top 12.
Brazil is very strong at Miss Universe but it hasn’t had as many winners.
With Raissa things are very different. She has been called a strong contender alongside Venezuela and Philippines.
She consistently features in Top 5 list of many pageant enthusiasts.
She comes across as a lively girl with balanced personality not overdoing anything so far.
Raissa is also a sports lover and a big fan of cricket like most her countrymen. That also lends a special character to her charm.
Raissa's main contest at the Miss Universe pageant 2016 is with fellow Latinas from Colombia and Venezuela which have sent very strong and prepared delegates as usual. Philippines and Thailand are also very strong.

We wish her all the best for the contest.
