I am Laia Gutiérrez Sanz, I am 18 years old and I was born in Barcelona, I just finished second in high school. From a very young age I have been a fighter and faithful to my thoughts. In the near future I would love to start a law degree and specialize in criminal justice, the result of a dream I have had since I was 8 years old. I started competing in beauty contests when I was 16 years old, and I could see that beauty contests bring empowerment, courage and that which defines a unique, fighter and determined woman. Thanks to the beauty contests I have been able to grow as a person and above all as a woman, leaving behind the insecurities and reflecting to society that with enthusiasm, perseverance, passion and effort everything can be accomplished. My goal as Miss Intercontinental Spain 2022 is to be an inspiration to women who are afraid, afraid of being excluded by the stereotype inculcated in society, afraid of facing their own insecurities and afraid to pursue their dreams by instilled obstacles from outside thus showing that we women are strong, fighters, courageous, beautiful and natural in all respects.
