“I first want to thank God for giving me the amazing opportunity to impact and influence young women in this country. I also want to give special thanks to my parents for giving me life and raising me with principles and values. Huge thanks to my whole family for their unwavering support, without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. To my husband Bobby Ware, thank you for believing in me and encouraging me to reach my highest potential every single day. Special thanks to my team thank you for your unconditional support and commitment to our program, your expertise, patience and passion for this project truly shows
Coming to America and leaving my hometown Colombia at the age of 18 was not easy. Not speaking the language and having to adjust to a whole different culture was a challenge, but today 14 years later I understand God’s plan and why he brought me here.
Being crowned Miss Houston Latina, Miss Texas Latina 2014, having received 4 World Fitness Titles, and being a Pageant Director has definitely changed my life and it has allowed me to discover new talents and encourage others to find theirs.
Never in a million years did I think I was going to have the chance to inspire women from all over the world and help them find the fire in them. I feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity to impact so many women through this platform.
To all the women who have been part of my journey, I applaud you for stepping out of your comfort zone and putting yourselves out there to discover your true potential. You are all more than models, Role Models. This is just the beginning of an amazing transformation and I’m so honored and humbled to have been part of your journey.
Lastly, thank you to our sponsors who believe in me and support me in every encounter. Your unconditional support has helped us grow and improve our program. I can’t wait to see what the future holds but one thing I know for a fact is that: THE BEST IS YET TO COME!"
