WORDS TO LIVE BY

“Because I’m the size of what I see and the size of my height.” Fernando Pessoa

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Martinez-Marquez is a participant in Miss Hispanidad Colorado which is a contest/organization that gives personal growth classes to girls between 15-18, who help the community like giving food to the homeless and visiting the elderly.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMORTANT?

“We realize the needs of our community. Having a voice and taking action is what makes change in the world, especially with the union of people and the community.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD, I WOULD...

“I would create an organization that ends the abuses toward humans and animals, homelessness, deportations, and drug addictions.”
