I´m from a small city in the northwestern Peru: Sullana, located in Piura, the capital of the region. I´m just about to finish the Journalism career. I have worked as a TV Host and Reporter in my city. I chose this career because I think journalists are not simply editors, news anchors or writers, journalists are like the “watchdogs” of society. They are the most visible proponents of the right of free speech and they can help make people make better and more informed decisions. In my free time I like dancing, doing some voluntary work when I can, or spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy traveling too, and the experience I can gain from it. I’m a cofounder of Kuska Foundation, I have been working for disadvantaged people from my city. This is one of the things that feeds my soul. It´s an honor for me to be Peru in this pageant, which has grown to become an icon of female beauty and success. I know that through this platform we can raise awareness about the importance of tolerance and respect towards diversity, it’s of remarkable importance for the correct development of humanity and peaceful coexistence worldwide. I´m quite proud of being Peruvian and I am happy to be able to show a little more about my country in this contest.
