12/8/2018 in China, the regular beauty contest "Miss World 2018" ended. The winner was the 26-year-old Mexican model Vanessa Ponce de Leon.
Vanessa was born in Guanojuato, Mexico, on March 7, 1992. The beauty business is not limited to model business: she is the holder of a diploma of a human rights specialist, constantly participates in charity, and also serves on the board of directors of Migrantes en el camino (“Migrants on the road"). , provides the necessary advice and helps migrants and refugees, as well as assists women who are victims of abuse.
Vanessa has a proactive stance. The contest jury conquered the girl with a story about a variety of charity projects in which she had the opportunity to participate - in particular, about working at a school in which children of indigenous Mexican tribes receive education. Vanessa speaks very warmly about people with disabilities. She encourages everyone, if possible, at least once in their life to try to become a volunteer.
She loves to spend her free time at the seaside - sunbathing, swimming, scuba diving, playing volleyball. Vanessa draws nice. Among her favorite films, she singles out Downton Abbey, and her favorite dish is the quesadilla, folded in half, wheat or corn cake with various fillings, most often cheese.
It should be noted that the beauty is different modesty: in her Instagram there are no explicit pictures. Basically, Vanessa puts her own photos in national costumes.
Winning the competition was not easy: it lasted about a month. All this time, the beauties demonstrated their talents, underwent various tests and organized a parade in evening dresses. There was no bikini competition - the organizers decided to abandon this stage in 2015 and evaluate the participants solely by their personal qualities. 5 girls from 10 who participated in the semifinal got to the final. The duration of the event was about 3 hours. Each girl had to perform a dance in a national costume. There was also a defile in evening dresses from the best British fashion designers.
Vanessa became the 68th winner of the Miss World title and took the crown from the hands of last year’s winner, Manushi Chkhillar from India. In total, 118 countries participated in the competition. For the first time, Mexico ranked first in a beauty contest of this magnitude. However, this is not the first victory in the biography of beautiful Vanessa: in 2014, she won the fifth season of the television show "Mexico's Next Top Model". Actually, from this began her modeling career. And the 2018th year, in addition to winning a beauty contest, brought Vanessa the title of "Miss Mexico".
Despite the resounding success, the priority for Vanessa, in her own words, at the moment is charitable activity, in particular, the organization "Migrantes en el Camino". The girl is engaged in providing legal assistance to refugees and women victims of violence, which once again confirms the well-known saying: a talented person is talented in everything. We wish Vanessa good luck in all your endeavors!
