On a mothersday May12th 1985 I was elected Miss Curaçao. Never thought about participating in any beauty pageant but life is like a Pandora box full of surprises.
By winning this beauty pageant I learned a great lesson: never underestimate your own potentials. It taught me how to turn obstacles into opportunities. Standing at only 5'2" tall and without any catwalk experience my chances of winning this pageant was very unlikely yet I turned obstacles into opportunities.
