Miss Earth Colombia 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
My childhood was interesting and happy. Although my parents are together, all my life I had live separated from my father because of his job, so my relationship with him is special. I always traveled to farms near the place where my dad worked and he loved to teach me about life in the small towns. I studied at a school that was surrounded by nature so I always had a connection with it. I had many friends and always gave the best grades in my studies.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My parents are from different cities and cultures. My mom feels better in the city and my dad loves the countryside. I have always had more contact with my mother's family for a connection of women but the funny thing is that in personality I am very similar to my father. Even though I am not all the time with him, all he has taught me is how I use my actions in my environment. To my mother, I own her all the time she has dedicated me as a mentor and has always supported me in everything I have done. I have a brother who is my best friend, he knows everything about me and I trust him more than other one.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
To be a queen. I never thought that I would really succeed because I did not imagine myself in the focus of a public, where I would be the center of attention and really be heard by others. I thought it was very difficult even to try to be a queen. It was a task to believe in me, in what I was able to demonstrate and tell myself that it was worth trying. Now I am here and I know it's not easy but not impossible as long as I believe in myself.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
Colombia is a country that despite of being so small is the cradle of great characters in history. In addition, we are the second country with greater biodiversity of the planet and we counted on endemic species and unique landscapes that are part of our histories. Colombians are persevering people, foreign people recognize us for being very kind and decent. We have been demonstrating that we care about the environment because now in some parts people submit to popular vote, some of the decisions that are made regarding mining and also groups of young people who have formed organizations to help the poorest populations. That is Colombia, a territory ready to help.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
I like to write. I have a lot of imagination and It´s easy for me to talk about topics I know. Cooking is a hobby for me, watching videos of recipes is a way in which I become distracted and get whim of many things.

I love animals, I would like to have a monkey that can take everywhere with me but I know it is not the right thing to do. I am addicted to watch movies. My favorites are the comedy dramas. Fashion photographs are my favorite, in them I always inspire myself to work as a model, a profession that I love.
