What environmental project will you create to promote the protection of Mother Earth and why?
El proyecto que propongo consiste en promover la concientización paulatina en los distintos grupos sociales (niños, jóvenes y adultos) acerca de las problemáticas ambientales tanto locales, nacionales como internacionales que ponen en peligro a Nuestra Madre Tierra. Porque se observa la desinformación, la ignorancia e indiferencia de la mayoría de los actores sociales, especialmente de los adultos para comprometerse a actuar en defensa del medio ambiente.
What makes you proud of your country and what can you promote about it?
Me siento orgullosa del País que represento porque es un pedazo de suelo que le abrió los brazos a muchísimas per_ sonas de distintas nacionalidades que buscaban refugio después de la guerra dando así lugar a una sociedad heterogé_ nea conformada por distintas culturas que aprendieron a convivir. Mi País, Argentina, es como una “ reserva cultural del Planeta”. Vivimos aquí desde pueblos originarios hasta personas que, como yo, tienen en su sangre mezcla de va_ rias nacionalidades (aborigen, español e italiano por parte de mi madre; alemán y húngaro por parte de mi padre. Esta convivencia nos hizo más tolerantes para aceptar y respetar la diversidad cultural preparándonos para hacer un mundo sin fronteras.
Describe your childhood/growing years:
My childhood was pretty funny. I had lots of friends and a beautiful family. I was always very independent, outgoing and dynamic. I participated in many activities and events and looked at them as part of a game but also I knew these prepared me for my future. I went to school were children practiced volleyball, hockey and different dances. I traveled a lot. I always had the support of my parents, family, neighbors and friends.
What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?
In my childhood, I learned that life and the world is beautiful, that nothing is achieved without effort, that you need to learn to respect if you want to be respected, that you have to fall many times to learn. The way is paved with many stones and thorns but if you believe in God and put your projects in His hands, everything becomes easier. That error is the principle of learning and that no dream is impossible. You just have to keep your focus on your work most importantly and your dreams will become a reality.
What is your most memorable moment?
My most memorable moments were my first communion in the Catholic Church, the celebration of my 15th birthday, the yielding exams each year to become Professor Folkdance Argentinas and the day that I had fully accepted myself. Also the Sundays in the field with family, game projects with group of friends from my neighborhood, the beginning of high school and trips with the volleyball team and the dance group not to mention the vacation trips with my family to different the provinces of my country and abroad, knowing so many people, and learning different cultures.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose it?
Defending the environment is my personal commitment and social responsibility. Promoting to reduce the consumption of water, electricity and fuel in the households as well as to recycle and reuse waste to reduce the pollution of soil and air. I believe one should not merely state one’s environmental advocacy and awareness but live out their advocacies as well.
What tip can you share to promote sustainable energy for all?
The sun shines for everyone. Seize its energy so we can all live better and help our Mother Earth survive.
Other information that you would like to share with the Miss Earth Management:
I believe all our personal actions to help care for the environment is very valuable, but I am also aware that there are times when urgent actions are not carried out sooner and this habit must stop. We should form active networks that involve us all.
