What do you think is the most important quality every beauty queen should possess and why?

First: Responsibility,  because this is a full-time job. Second:  You have to be conscious and prepare for everything you have to face.  If the organization trusts you, you must prove that it was the right decision, because is something that you want to do.

Tell me something about yourself and your work. What do you actually do, and have done in the past?

Well I describe my self as a quiet, honest and persistent. I have a degree in Social Mass Communications and currently I’m working in the Marketing Division of a Panamanian bank which means a lot of pressure, because I have to balance my work with my duties in the pageant. Also, in my free time I like to model (runway model), be in the outdoors  and take pictures of nature.

Who is your favorite beauty queen?

My favorite beauty queen is Maria Gabriel Isler (Molly) . She showed her beauty through her confidence, being a humble and disciplined person.

What do you want to be in the future?

I want to be a leader in every project I do.  I want that my voice serve as a change agent for other women. That other persons understand that we should love an respect ourselves as we are, just like the rest of the people.  And demostrate that you are the only one that can put limits in your life.
