Miss El Salvador – Daniela Augspurg in TV Azteca’s La Academia Bicentenario
Daniela Augspurg – Miss El Salvador representative in the 2008 Miss Costa Maya Pageant is once again proudly representing her country internationally. 19-year-old Daniela is the first and only person to represent her country, El Salvador in one of Mexico’s most popular reality shows – TV Azecta’s La Academia.
The show kicked off this past Sunday, September 12, where Daniela sang along with Denisse of Italia and both performed La Quinta Estacion’s “El sol no regresa”. It was a tough competition and unfortunately Daniela (El Salvador) is up for elimination along with the representative of Guatemala and USA for next week’s round of competition.
La Academia (kind of like American Idol) takes students from around the world and teaches and trains them to sing and at the end of the competition the winner has the opportunity to record an album and become a famous artist.
Stay tuned to this week’s round of competition on Channel 32- TV Azteca (local channel listing) from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Best of luck to Daniela Augspurg.

Along the same lines of successful Costa Maya beauty ambassadors, this past week Miss Costa Maya 2010 Gabriela Asturias was honored at an awards ceremony in her home town of Guatemala City.
As part of Guatemala’s Pre-Independence Day Celebrations, every year the Colegio Comercio Guatemalteco (University) pays tribute to various influential personalities of the country, among them deputies, celebrities, television hosts, artists and theater actors. This year Gabriela Asturias was amongst those honorees as the new Miss Costa Maya International Queen.
Gabriela was recognized for her outstanding participation in the civic event “Todos Somos Guatemala” (We are All Guatemala) held in commemoration of the country’s independence celebrations and for the significant exposure she brings to her country.
"The Costa Maya Festival was a first class event in which I lived unforgettable moments, shared with beautiful and happy people,” commented Gabriela on her Facebook page. “I realize that with hard work and dedication I managed to shine and show that my dreams could come true. I am happy to put the name of GUATEMALA up high. This is just one of many triumphs that I am aiming for and I give thanks to God for giving me the strength and much happiness.”
