You will compete at the Miss Florida USA Pageant, how will you prepare the contest? What unique characteristics would you say you bring to the competition?
I have been preparing for more than 16 years, I have traveled many countries like Colombia to improve myself in pageants because it is my dream since I was a little girl and to make it those dreams happen you have to work really hard so I trained my body, I finish my studies and I start modeling very young. My discipline, effort, knowledge and charisma, I am competitive and I give my very best to achieve my goals.
What inspired you to walk on the course of beauty pageants?
The discipline, the confidence and the effort to be in a competition and also all the good causes you can do to inspire and help many people around the world.
What do you expect to gain by competing in pageantry?
Make my dreams come true, my goal is to be able to help and inspire many people and beauty pageants are an amazing a platform to help our society.
Many misses have said that their dream since a child was to participate in a pageant as prestigious as Miss World (or Miss Universe). It this your case ? And if so, why ?
Absolutely, This is my dream that I have prepared all my life, I work very hard to make it happen because I want to help and empower many people, I want to inspire young people not to abandon their dreams and Miss Florida USA would be a good platform to help those in need and to make my dream come true
Social media seem to play a major role in pageantry nowadays. Do you think this is advantageous to you? Why or why not?
It's not an advantage, because for me preparation, passion and a good attitude is what gives you an advantage, but it is nice to see the support you receive through social media and it also works as an excellent platform to inspire many people. I was very young when I started competing in pageants and sport competitions and I didn’t have social networks and I still managed to win.
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 ?
Be myself, work hard to help those who are in need and empower women, I will let my actions speak louder than my words.
What would you advise any young girl out there who has a dream of being a queen one day?
Get prepared, be confident, be yourself and never give up because they are important tools to achieve your dreams.
