I am an 18-year-old Mexican young woman with strong family values. I consider myself spontaneous, creative, cheerful, and affectionate. I love setting goals and facing new challenges that motivate me to develop my full potential. I am disciplined, responsible, and always learning from every experience. In fact, I received the academic excellence scholarship for outstanding high school students in my school. I have attended extracurricular English and oratory classes since I was a child. I also practice physical disciplines such as swimming, volleyball, and gymnastics, which positively impact my physical and emotional health. Additionally, I am passionate about art and fashion, which is why I specialized in photography at the age of 15, founded my own photographic studio, and led my small business.


I hold the title of Teen Universe 2023 and believe in sharing my message of authenticity and courage with others. Wearing the International Teen Universe crown is a great honor for me. I want to use my voice to inspire others who are seeking to achieve their dreams. I firmly believe that it is not necessary to do extraordinary things to achieve success, but rather to do ordinary things in an extraordinary way. To become the person I am today, I had to face my fears and take brave steps towards my dreams. I am loyal to my values, talents, and passions, and I share them with the people around me. Now, I am able to transmit my message worldwide through various social media platforms.


My experience from the national pageant to winning the international crown.


Winning the National Teen Universe Mexico title was one of the most unforgettable days of my life. It was a night filled with adrenaline, joy, and gratitude. I knew that my biggest challenge was yet to come as all of Mexico had high expectations of me. I wanted to be a responsible, authentic, and human national queen who would spread the message of what Teen Universe represents throughout my country and prepare for the international competition. This was not an easy task, but with the help of my family and two wonderful National Directors, I was able to manage my time, activities, and resources and stay focused on my goal. I am proud to say that I have made great friendships throughout my country as more people joined my team and supported me in their own ways.




My preparation for the international pageant lasted around 10 months, during which I worked hard every day to improve my skills and areas of opportunity. When the long-awaited day arrived, I was filled with excitement and love from my family and was welcomed warmly in Spain. The week-long concentration with my fellow contestants from different countries was very enriching, and the professionalism of the International Directors and Staff exceeded my expectations. I was confident in myself and what I had to offer, and that helped me perform my best in the competition. When they announced me as the new Teen Universe International and I looked up to the sky, I felt a rush of emotions and knew that my hard work and dedication had paid off.



This experience has taught me that success is not just about luck, but about having confidence in yourself, resilience, dedication, teamwork, and preparation. I realize now that it's not just about reaching your dreams but also about living each day and striving to become the person you need to be to achieve them.
