“Between the ages of 12 and 16 I didn’t feel attractive at all. I had difficulty living with my classmates at school … I was too afraid of what they will say, “he shared in a telephone interview before leaving for the United States.

This 1.80 meter bilingual girl, who has been a tourism ambassador and is a Software Engineer, now knows that it was her own insecurities that were working against her.

“I was very overweight when I was younger, I was chubby and cheeky,” she admitted.

“I didn’t fit the clothes that were supposed to be for girls my age. Besides I was tall, my clothes were short and that caused me insecurity “.

With the change in mentality, he understood that his power was not in his appearance or in how he looked.

“Curiously, I began to feel more beautiful and people began to see that in me too, ” he assumed.

Andrea confessed that she also suffered bullying while she was in high school.

“I never really got a ‘fat, ugly’ offense, but it was this rejection that I felt that I wasn’t a part of it. There was an occasion in which they locked me in a bathroom and they began to say things to me , to make up that I had made some comments; this when social networks started. It was a problem that became noticeable and they took me out of school , but that was not the solution ”.

The evolution it has had, both personally and professionally, will now be projected in the international contest, where it will transmit a message of empowerment and its fight against gender violence.
