As the Grand organization states, I want to be the means in which to deliver peace and make a stand for the betterment of humanity by attempting to rid the world of conflict and focus my efforts on improving the quality of life for others. I believe this pageant will extend opportunities for me to assist others and help me attain our mutual goals. Resolving conflict is a key factor to achieve these goals. Conflict is normal and a healthy part of forming relationships. Some healthy responses to resolving conflict is to know how to pick your battles, being readyto forgive and forget, seeking compromise, and being open minded.When working hard to resolve conflict and deliver peace, the crown and banner are tools that give much power. The person behind these symbols must appeal to the masses and reach out with a strong and peaceful message. Once the public sees the good heart and inner beauty of the messenger, only some unique factors will make the winner stand out. As for myself, some qualities I have to help improve other people’s quality of life are I am incredibly self aware.I am a strong believer of integrity, discipline, and using common sense. But I live by generosity, kindness, and a sense of humor. I’m emotionally open and confident, and that allows me to empathize with others.My view on war is that it is never right. I believe war stems from selfishness and evil. War is unethical and levels humanity with beasts. A War won for some is lost by others, and life itself is worth so much more than greed. People should live every day supporting acts of kindness. As for myself, I collect makeup for battered women and donate this as gifts in Christmas, in order to help others find their inner beauty, and the confidence to continue to live their life normally. This is a humbling experience, since I was attacked by a dog at a young age, and was afraid to feel confident and beautiful.I proudly represent Cuba raised in deep sense of culture and traditions, where our people are resilient no matter what challenges we may face. Sharing our struggles through the arts whether its dance, poetry & music. For this I am grateful to represent my island and show the world that no matter were you come from, or your different beliefs with love and respect we can all live in peace and harmony. One person at a time can make a change to stop the war.
