With a final score of 4.455, our Missosology Timeless Beauty 2018 1st runner-up is Mariem Velazco of Venezuela.
Mariem is proof that birthdays bring good luck. In 2017, on her birthday, she was crowned Miss Venezuela Internacional, earning her the right to represent the country at the Miss International beauty pageant in Japan. Exactly a year after, she turned 20 with the Miss International crown on her head.
