WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL QUALITIES OF THE FLOWER? HEALING? FUNCTION?
Apart from being a beautiful flower, the orchid regenerates skin tissue as it contains vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper, which cares for the skin from the inside out.

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD).
I was born in a gorgeous city called Cajamarca, which is located in the highlands to the north of Peru. My grandmother brought me up. She taught me a lot of values and traditional customs. She loved me and made me the woman I am today. In conclusion, I had a beautiful infancy. I wasn't raised with much wealth but I didn't lack much either.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
The most memorable time I remember is when i did voluntary work for the first time. It was for the one i have been supporting for nine years. That day, I met Jorge, a kid who stole my heart.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I come from a very big family, by my father and mother's side i have nineteen close uncles as well as seventy-six first cousins. That's why, I can always count on their love and support.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
Something unusual I did a couple of years ago was to travel across my country by van for a month. I just drove through several communities without stopping or having the necessity of knowing them. It was an unforgettable experience.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
One of the things I have always done is to recycle and reuse everything I can. For example, paper. Also, I avoid using plastic and other products that can harm the environment. I would tell people that this planet is our home and that's the reason why we must take care of it by respecting its nature, by avoiding contaminating it and by trying to recycle as much as possible.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
I live in a country full of wealth and willingness, a country blessed with a rich flora, fauna and biodiversity. I feel proud of peru due to its landscapes, culture, identity as well as its creative and hard-working people that live there.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
As an ambassador of Peru, I promote its delicious gastronomy and flagship products such as coffee, pisco, exotic fruits, the great variety of climates, its textile, the creole music. What is more, the tourist attractions, its history, culture and specially its supportive and hard-working people.
