Miss Fiesta San Antonio 2019
Celebrating Fiesta San Antonio has always been a tradition in my family, as it is for most families, but in 2019, I was given the chance to see Fiesta in a whole new light. In October of 2018, I was selected to be Miss Fiesta San Antonio 2019. As Miss Fiesta, I had the opportunity to serve as official royalty and ambassador to Fiesta San Antonio, our city’s official “Party with a Purpose” that celebrates the Alamo City’s history and rich cultures. I was honored to visit almost all of our 100+ events around San Antonio and appreciate our city’s widespread diversity and drive to give back.
Some of my favorite moments from my time as Miss Fiesta stem from the opportunity to implement a community service project of my own. I partnered with Communities in Schools – San Antonio to create Boost Box, a fun, uplifting and health-focused care package for local middle school students. Through this project and others around the city, I met young people who expressed the desire to be give back to their community and serve as Fiesta royalty too. I always enjoyed reminding them that they are intelligent, beautiful and capable of achieving anything they put their minds to.
The spirit of Fiesta and the entire city of San Antonio is one of service, collaboration, tradition and a passion for giving back to our community. We welcome people of all ages, ethnicities, professions and backgrounds to join in celebrating with us, all for a purpose. I never dreamed that I would be able to serve my city in this unique way, but while I have the opportunity, I try my best to exemplify our world-famous, kind spirit and generous hospitality. Fiesta is the celebration of the perpetual, zealous soul of our city and the unity of San Antonio’s past triumphs, present brilliance and future ambitions and I hope you’ll join us to celebrate soon.
