At 20 years of age, Grace is currently pursuing Cosmetology Degree; following her mother’s footsteps, she is also taking singing lessons with a Cuban vocal coach. At the tender age of 11, Grace’s parents sent her to modeling classes in Chetumal, Mexico to overcome her shyness and lack of confidence. This was due to her facing bullying, especially body shaming. Since then, Grace has gained full self-confidence. She challenged herself in 2021 and competed in the Miss San Pedro Pageant and won. The reigning Miss San Pedro has participated in several fashion shows and fashion photoshoots. She would love to work with young people to empower them and teach them the value of self-love.
