In times when the integral concept of beauty has gained strength, they have the opportunity to interact with our beauty queens as ambassadors of our youth and Puerto Rico, is an opportunity that we value. We are very excited about the participation of Estefanía Soto in the next episode of Blue TV because she has shown qualities that we promote as part of the programming that we offer our children and young people: education, leadership and social commitment”, stated Olga Ramos Carrasquillo, BGCPR president.
For her part, Estefanía Soto Torres stated: “One of my great wishes as Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2020 is to share what I have learned from the experiences I have had as a Caribbean woman. Educational and cultural spaces are platforms to develop our potential as human beings, regardless of where we are born and who we are. I am extremely happy to participate in the interactive spaces that Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico have created amid the pandemic. There is much to talk about and to share with our children and youth. I am grateful for this opportunity ”.
