To whom this may interest;
To those who yet do not know who am I, my name is Ivanimarie T. director of Miss Latina Florida Pageant. I want to start off by thanking you for your recent approach and interest for our pageant.
A little bit of history of our pageant might help you understand who we are and what our purpose is.
Our pageant was founded over 26yrs ago by Margie Wright, Mrs. Wright is currently doing her last year as a pageant director and leaving on her legacy to be continued by Ivanimarie Torres (myself). It is truly an honor to follow the steps of my once pageant director Mrs. Wright. I was my self one of Mrs. Wright's pageant queen in 2015, I was honored to represent my native island Puerto Rico in Miss Latina Florida 2015 and was crowned Miss Puerto Rico of Orlando 2015. Being apart of this pageant helped me become the person I am today. We are truly dedicated to make a difference in our Latino culture here in Florida. We are one of the very few Latino pageants left here in Central Florida that has kept their routes and has been celebrated it every year. Our goal is to enrich the Latino culture by opening our doors to every Latina that desires to give herself a chance in the pageant industry or modeling industry. We take our tittle holders to very prestigious and well known national pageants to represent our entity at a national level. Our main goal is that every girl that participates with us finishes our pageant satisfied and proud of their accomplishments, that who participates could use our pageant as a platform for their future.
