Andrea Katherine Gutierrez Puentes, representing Colombia, was crowned Miss Tourism World 2017 in Malaysia.
The people of Colombia celebrated once again as the title came back to Colombia after 20 years, where the last winner from Colombia, Miss Maria Mercedes Ruiz Orozco was crowned the winner at the Miss Tourism World 1997 Final.
Over 50 contestants took to the stage at the Miss Tourism World 2017 Final in Melaka, Malaysia and applauded and cheered as Andrea was announced Miss Tourism World 2017 and rushed forward to congratulate her.
Andrea was born in Bucaramanga, Colombia and works in Civil Engineering. In her spare time she enjoys listening to music, drawing, painting and camping.
As a Tourism Ambassador for Colombia and Miss Tourism World she wishes to work hard to help strengthen her country internationally. Andrea says “Thanks to the peace process a door to the world opens for travellers to visit, know and fall in love with our landscapes, our exquisite cuisine and our diverse cultures.”
I am sure the people of Colombia are proud of Andrea and will join us in congratulating our new Miss Tourism World.
