… And talent goes back to its roots.

Miss World Mexico, Ana Girault Contreras, is representing Mexico in The Miss World 2016. She is well known in the fashion world, has a bachelor’s degree in Communications, and is also a great humanitarian.

Although I am not into pageant contests nor I think they represent the women empowerment I would like to see more often, I am happy Leonardo’s work will be hight lighted.
