What inspired you to walk on the course of beauty pageants?
This is an opportunity that kept arising when I was 13 years old till the age of 20. My parents had told me to stay focused in school and that is exactly what I did. I graduated with my Bachelors in Dental Hygiene at the age of 22 and my Masters at the age of 25. Beauty pageants have always been one of my dreams to fulfill and I am so proud of myself for having the courage to go through this new journey.
We’ve all seen the stereotypical portrayals of pageant contestants, a la Miss Congeniality, spreading peace, love and beauty throughout the world. How do you think you'll make a difference?
I'll make a difference by sharing my compassion for the world, educating others on how important their oral health is for their overall well-being, show how imperative it is to volunteer to organizations you are passionate about, and guide future generations in the path of kindness for one another.
