I am a former Beauty Queen. However, that does not define who I am. I was raise with wonderful work ethics from my parents and the believe that we have to give back when you received much. My father wanted for all of us, even us girls, to have a career whether we intended to use it or not. I became a Journalist and practice my career with much pride. And I want to teach my children the same principles.
Since early on in my life I have been involve with Charity Organizations or doing charity work. I even created a Foundation when I was Miss Venezuela, that extended to Peru and Ecuador and helped Pediatric Hospitals.
I have been married for 20 years and known my husband (Dr. Alex E. Lechin) for 23 years. My family is the most important aspect of my life. Raising my children with good work ethics and love for others is my goal.
When I look back into my life, I realize I have lived many life. My life changed many times and took me to many place or professions. My life have been anything but wearing.
