The beauty pageant world has lost one of its queens.
Gleycy Correia, who was crowned Miss United Continents Brazil in 2018, has died at the age of 27, according to a statement posted on her Instagram Story June 20.
Her family priest Lidiane Alves Oliviera told the Daily Mail that the beauty queen passed away at a private clinic on June 20 after suffering from heavy bleeding and a heart attack following a routine operation to get her tonsils removed in late March. The priest said that she was left in a coma for two months following the cardiac arrest on April 4.
Correia entered the beauty pageant world as a teenager and was crowned Miss United Continents Brazil at the age of 23 in 2018. After winning the pageant, she worked as a beautician and model, regularly sharing her work on her social media accounts. In March, she posted a video of herself performing a micropigmentation procedure on one of her client’s eyelashes.
