Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was able to camp out at the Grand Canyon, and what an experience it was! I visited as a child, but didn't appreciate the beauty of it until then. National Parks of mountains and canyons are not something in Florida, but I love the shuttle stops of scenic views we were able to visit. The geology side of me was so excited to see the changes of rocks throughout the area. It was absolutely magnificent. I also loved their sustainable projects, with water filling st...Read Full Post »

This semester I've had the pleasure of interning with Dream in Green, a non-profit organization that has environmental education programs in over 115 K-12 schools in Miami Dade County.
Through the years, I've been involved with their Living the Dream event and actually learned about it in my freshman year of college. I visited a participating high school and was inspired by how these students created so much initiatives in their school, from coral plants, gardens, rec...Read Full Post »

On my birthday, I had an extremely busy day celebrating my sister's birthday, tabling at Orange County Recycles Day, and more. However, I was able to stop by the Sunday of Giving Thanksgiving Homeless event on the way.
I am grateful I can celebrate my birthday, and I am grateful I have a sponsor like Consumers Against Toxic Apparel to provide me organic and sustainable wardrobe I can proudly represent. However, many of the homeless can barely get the shoes they need, let alone want. I'm...Read Full Post »

I've always wanted to visit solar co-ops. I learned about it when I interned with the Orange County Environmental Protection Division, and I wanted to see what it's about and how Miami-Dade is going about with the plan.
I attended an info session and learned so much regarding solar panels and how Miami residents could get them easier. Not everyone can get solar panels, it must be houses with no trees with roofs facing the south or east when the sun hits it. Furthermore, the energy bill ...Read Full Post »

Going to the show I wore my Consumer's Against Toxic Apparel affiliate Silver Need...Read Full Post »

This past week I have attended the Central Florida Veg Fest in Orlando and the SEED Food and Wine Festival in Miami. Now I have to be honest, I was nervous because I'm not vegan. Growing up, I was raised to have meat everyday. As I've been preparing for Miss Florida USA, I've been trying to eat healthier. For those that are considering going vegetarian or vegan but worry, I suggest you first start by cutting beef. It's the #1 emitter of carbon and more harmful than car pollutants. Attending b...Read Full Post »

Today I had the pleasure of speaking to middle school students about what I do with Teens Go Green and Model4Miracles. I remember when I was in middle school I had no idea I would be able to do everything I get to do today, and wanted them to focus on their goals and figure out their contribution to society.
These kids were also working on service projects of their own, a...Read Full Post »

In one weekend I've gone to four different cities North, South, and Central Florida. The first day I woke up at 2am preparing for my two speeches and packing for my trip to Jacksonville. But this was before my 6:30am modeling job in Boca Raton. So I had to leave Miami at around 4:30am because the traffic really is THAT bad, to later drive back to the airport to head to Jacksonville. As soon as I landed in Jacksonville, I got an Uber to Jacksonville University and prepped for my speech that ni...Read Full Post »

The holidays are near, and if you don't know me, you must learn that I LOVE the spirit of giving that Christmas and the holidays bring.
Since 2009, my mother and I bring our Miracle titleholders to drop off toys to Arnold Palmer Hospital around Christmas time for Santa's workshop. Many kids have to stay in the hospital during Christmas, but Santa makes sure on Christmas morning each child receives a sack full of goodies that are personalized to their liking.
I wanted to wear some...Read Full Post »
