Angela Ponce made history as the first transgender woman to win Miss Universe Spain on Friday, June 29 at the Palau Final I de Congressos de Tarragona.

This competition was not her first pageant experience. In fact, she competed at Miss World Spain in 2015 representing Cadiz, the southernmost province of Spain. While she was eliminated during the first round of cuts on final night, she said she was already a winner.

"I have the regional crown on my head and I will keep fighting to make us seen, to make us heard and to demonstrate that I am already a queen with my own crown."

Ponce says she always knew she was different from other kids. In 2011, she discovered transsexuality and in 2014, with the help of surgery and hormone treatments her embraced her female identity.
