MS. UNIVERSE ® PLATFORM
FROM MISCHAELA'S DESK
Deciding to compete in Ms. Universe was not a small decision. I first was accepted into the Miss Earth 2021 pageant, but wanted to expand myself to a National title in an organization that could pair well with the work I want to do in both the US and Peru. For me, Ms. Universe was a natural fit for my platform of Pacific Ocean Conservation which I would like to build on for the decades to follow. I am spellbound by the creatures that call our oceans their home, and the mighty Pacific is the largest and most captivating ocean on our planet.
It is my promise to engage in enduring work that further strengthens the ties between business and environmentalism. Promoting and committing my platform and resources to Eco-Tourism will be part of my lasting legacy. Eco-Tourism, regardless of global location, has been proven to aid in the preservation of ecosystems and the protection of vulnerable species - all of which contribute to maintaining the delicate ecological balance of a biome.
Lastly, I feel that the world over, women are uniquely tied to water and its life sustaining powers.
I hope to inspire more women and girls to protect this sacred resource wherever it may be.

I truly believe women are the protectors and keepers of our sacred water. To me, all water is sacred - but the Pacific Ocean is truly special in all the world. The nations it touches, and the rich ocean life it sustains make it truly unique on our planet.
