” I have always been grateful of how pageantry has blessed me with wonderful opportunities to be the person I am today. If I could do that for someone else, then I feel only then I can really represent what pageantry is all about. I have gone from being a woman in need, to helping the need of others.” Daisi Pollard Sepúlveda
