  1. Liza,

    All the best! Yesterday, october 4 th, Liza waas crowned Miss Universe Aruba 2012. We are all so proud of you and so is your auntie Noriza Helder, who was Miss Aruba 1982.

    We are looking forward for you to sparkle in Vergas!

  2. If you have only one participant to show up. You have to hope that contestant wannabe is a great representative. This lady meets the standard with lovely looks. She is fresh with a twinkle in her eye that screams “I am very well prepared”. I wish her the best.

  3. Hi,

    Liza is the NIECE of Miss Aruba 1982 Noriza Helder. Who represented Aruba at Miss Universe 1982 in Lima. Peru and also in Miss World 1982 in London, England.

    Liza will be officially crowned and went through a casting. She was the only one who qualified. We wish her all the best and luck, she has great potential and is a talented synchronized swimmer of Aruba. Liza is well prepared and we are proud of her!

    Enjoy and all the best!

  5. yes she’s so lucky with the title im sure she’s so pressured since she’s appointed with no process crowning hopefully she will do her best to represent Miss Uruba in Miss Universe 2012 in Las Vegas. Good Luck!


  7. Liza has much more poise than her mother Noriza had and she is better prepared also
    and she is less timid than her mother was in 1982. 30 years ago Noriza was insecure
    and now Liza is not insecure at all. Times change (a lot of things), and some of us
    still are nostalgic to times of 3 decades ago, as then we were young teenagers fans
    of Air Supply: you remember the song JUST ASS I AM? Well, Liza somehow takes us too

  8. Liza Helder is daughter of Noriza Helder, who went2Miss Universe for Aruba in 1982.
    Hopefully Liza has better luck than her Mother Noriza: as she is one better prepaid

  9. Well, actually Liza Helder is the better choice out of one than the least choice of
    5 out of none: Liza Helder the one best out of one, not an illusion of 5 out of 0.0
