People always ask me, why am I beauty queen? There are the obvious "fun" things, like attending fashion shows, or red carpet events. I have to admit, I love the warm messages and hugs I get from young girls that want to follow in my footsteps. I'm in a unique position to use my title to bring my message to an even larger audience than ever before. I challenged myself last year to do something more than just fill a requirement or to feed my ego. I pushed myself to go that extra step in order to make a real difference and contribution to society - what we "pageant girls" like to call, "a crown with a purpose".
My career and passion have always been in health, so the transition to starting my own health and wellness company was the natural next step in my mission to improve the lives of others. I am here today, happy and healthy because of the choices I made, and also because people believed in me, and helped me to reinvent myself along the way. Now it's my turn to help others do the same.
I was featured in the newspaper El Diario last week. I hope more women (and men), challenge themselves to live healthier lives and seek the help they need to reach (and supersede) all their goals. Many thanks to Health Editor, Pedro Frisneda, for the great interview!
