World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
I am an independent woman with substance, soft spoken, caring and kind, always grateful and feel blessed to be surrounded by amazing people. I have three children: Mari, Martyn and Althea; married to Eduardo - they are my inspiration and my life. I’m a nurse by profession, caring for people is my nature but I am also self- employed showing people how to be financially prepared when they retire. I have had my share of ups and downs but always managed to survive and move on. Once, I’ve searched for the meaning and missing part of my life… I have found it all in my children, the man of my life and my family. There will always be trials and tribulations in life but I believe their love and support will be my shield and ammunition. My goal at this point is to be able to give back and share the blessings I am enjoying. I want to encourage women and children go chase their dreams, to compete only with themselves to better each time and be happy and content with their God-given features and their achievements.
