Cómo lo dije en el fb live del día de hoy y lo seguiré diciendo siempre... Una corona sin misión y propósito es solo metal y piedras. No importa la corona si no lo que la sostiene, una mujer que se compromete al cambio, que es compasiva, que desea más que el título, una oportunidad para demostrar que México puede y quiere más! Para todas las que quieren unirse a la familia @missmexicoorg y las que no también! Su corona la crean con sus acciones y metas logradas! Sigan cultivándose, sigan avanzando y sigan soñando! Cualquier cosa que necesiten aquí estoy para apoyarlas, buenas noches estrellas fugaces.  As I said earlier in my fb live, and I’ll keep on saying it... A crown without meaning and purpose is just metal and stones. The crown itself is nothing, the import thing is what is holding it, a woman who is committed to make a change, one who is compa s sive, one who desires an opportunity to show what mexico is capable of, more than just a title. To all the girls out there who want to be part of the @missmexicoorg Family, and to every woman! Your actions and achievements build your crowns! Keep learning, dreaming and moving forward!
