Beauty queens flee Venezuela to find work abroad


More than two million people have fled Venezuela since the start of the economic crisis. The exodus is even affecting one of the country's most successful industries: beauty queens. Estimated at a value of several billion dollars, the country's pageant industry boasts six Miss Worlds and seven Miss Universes, beating all international records. But it seems Venezuela is no longer the right place for these young women to make their dream a reality.

But they're also going as far as Chile, Peru, the US, and Spain. Some are even paying to be smuggled abroad, which decimates their savings. Abroad, they struggle to survive, as they usually have no work permits. At the same time, they face racist and xenophobic reactions from their host countries.

  • Happiness Takes Effort

    Be happy now, don't wait for joy to fall into your lap, because chances are it won't. I hope this helps, and share it with a friend if they're having a bad day.In my opinion, the best way to find happiness is to hold onto things that make you happy, even if they are few and far between. Positive thinking is about being strong when things aren't going your way and sharing that positive energy with others. Love yourself, love others, work hard, and find peace within yourself. Life is short and unpredictable, so focus on having a good time while it lasts and controlling what you can control. Get to know yourself by finding what makes you happy, when I didn't know what made me happy, I felt lost.Love and light,Kassiep.s. this song makes me very happy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LezG6GXUZ0kConnect With Me =]Blog: http://www.cloudyapples.ca/Twitter: http://twitter.com/CloudyApplesInstagram: http://instagram.com/cloudyapples_Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RealCloudyApples/-~-~~-~~~-~~-~-I Have A New GAMING CHANNEL!
