Who is Clarissa Molina, Nuestra Belleza Latina 2016 ?


In her early teenage years Clarissa Molina experienced culture shock when she moved away from her serene tropical surroundings in her native Dominican Republic and moved to New Jersey. As an immigrant she suffered high school bullying and isolation for she spoke not one word of English. Far from being discouraged Clarissa applied herself and she is now a fully honored US college student, speaking english as a 2nd language.

Clarissa participated in several contests before becoming the Miss Dominican Republic Universe 2015. Most of these pageants and events open the door for Clarissa to really grow in this business, however it wasn’t until “Nuestra Belleza Latina” (Univision Reality Show) where people actually began to know who she was and to see her potential. Although she was always as the favorite for the public, she earned the 3rd finalist place. After finishing the reality, Clarissa decided to participate in the Miss Dominican Republic Universe 2015, where in the same year was crowned as Miss Dominican Republic Universe.

On December 20th, 2015; Molina represented the Dominican Republic at the Miss Universe Pageant 2015, where she made the TOP 10.
