Erika Canela has been crowned the first black woman to win the Brazil’s Miss BumBum competition.
The 24 year old, who is a medical student, was declared the winner on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at the grand finale of the 2016 competition.
‘I can’t believe it. I never imagined it would be me. I’d decided to give up modelling and go and study medicine. But now this has changed everything. I’m ecstatic. ‘But I’m not taking this role lightly. I promise I’ll represent Brazilian beauty to the best of my ability, with all the hard work and dedication that the title deserves. This is the first of many conquests.’
