After receiving the crown and congratulations from the other competitors, Andrea Meza gave an encouraging speech to consolidate her reign that is just beginning.
“We live in a society that is increasingly advanced. And just as we have advanced as a society, we have also advanced in stereotypes. Today, beauty does not only lie in how we look. For me, beauty lies in our spirit, in our soul and in the values in which we operate. Never allow someone to tell you that you are worthless. Thank you ”, was what he said in his final speech.
The Chihuahua native stood out throughout the contest for her figure and bearing on the catwalk, as well as her responses about the Covid-19 pandemic and her idea of breaking stereotypes of beauty.
