Why do you want to become Miss California Latina?

I want to become Miss CA Latina because I want my journey and the struggles that I have faced to inspire and empower other Latina’s to pursue their dreams. Despite the adversity that many Latina’s face, including myself, I want all women to know that we can be both intelligent and beautiful without having to compromise our faith, values, and character.

In addition, as a female pursuing a career as an engineer, I want to encourage other women to pursue degrees in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) fields and increase the diversity in these fields. Lastly, I would use my title as Miss CA Latina to bring awareness to the dangers of Alcoholism and helping organizations that provide support to the victims of this addiction and their family members.
