Meet Alison, an Ecuadorian teen breaking into the modeling industry!





1. How has your Ecuadorian background influenced your work?

Coming from two Ecuadorian parents, I have been told many stories about my parent’s childhood especially my moms. Ever since my mom was young her dream was always to participate in pageants and modeling, just how I’m participating in them now. Sadly she did not have the opportunity like I do now. I am a proud Ecuadorian living the American dream. 


2. You recently competed in the Miss Latina VIP. Tell us more about that experience!

Participating in Miss Latina VIP was a once in a lifetime experience. Not only did I have an awesome time meeting amazing and inspiring people, but I also learned a few things I needed to work on with myself. Participating in Miss Latina VIP was an unforgettable experience.

3.What inspired you to get into the modeling industry?

Growing up I was always a very timid person who was unsatisfied with themselves. I always compared myself to others which brought my self-esteem down. But something very important I realized is that I didn’t need a perfect body, skin, or the perfect smile. I soon learned to love and accept myself. Natural beauty is the best beauty and not being scared to show is what inspired me to be a model. I want to show society that it’s ok to have your flaws shown on camera, and that it’s ok to show your true and natural self. 

4. What advice would you give to our readers who are trying to break into the industry and compete in pageants?

The first pageant I ever participated in was last year in October and that is where it all changed. The feeling I had walking down the runway as my family and friends cheered me on was the best feeling ever. And that is one reason why I do pageants and modeling. Doing pageants is something that makes me beyond happy. Participating in pageants, I’m surrounded in a positive environment with inspiring people who want to see me succeed. I get to show the confidence and pride I have in myself being an Ecuadorian. To the girls who are thinking of trying something new, give pageants a try! You don’t have to be a certain age to do what makes you happy! You don’t have to have the perfect body, skin, or smile! Pageants aren’t about looks, pageants are about creating long lasting friendships and learning how to be confidently beautiful!! This goes out to everyone: Don’t allow fear to stop you from trying new things! Don’t be afraid! Jump! You only live once, how are you going to live it?
