In 2015 I Participate as Miss Quince were it was a different experience but I love it for the fact that we wore Quinceaneras dresses. In 2016 I won the title of Miss Teen San Juan County Latina, and at the state competition I won 2nd runner up, it tough me that if I keep on trying I will get to where I want to be in my future.

Another big opportunity came in my life and it is to represent the world tourism as 2020 World’s Teen Miss New Mexico Tourism to me is another experience were I’m not just going to show off myself but also my state. I will go to the nationals to Tennessee in July 2020. I’m still invited by my community to all the events.

I also participate in parades for the Connie Mack where we won 1 st place and the parades in Ignacio CO, where they wanted us with our heritage dresses which helps us win 1 st place as well as our community wanted to know more about our Latin culture and traditions.
