Yezenia Navarro is a Qatar-based Mexican entrepreneur, model, actress, and the proud holder of a multitude of international beauty pageant titles. She is also the founder of the NGO, Queens Without Scars, which dedicates its activities to raising awareness on domestic violence against women and supporting women from difficult households.
The ewmoda team had the opportunity to speak with Navarro on her whirlwind of a decade in acting, presenting, coaching models, modeling herself, walking pageant stages, being a working mother to three boys, and more.
On her favourite career highlights in the last ten years...
"I believe there are so many things from each of these roles. As a humanitarian I would say it is visiting orphans and children in several countries and being able to spend time with them. People in need often benefit from tangible items like money and food but I find it beautiful to be able to spend time with them and I believe this can make a positive difference."
In 2015, Navarro had a unique opportunity to travel through Jamaica, painting schools and spending time with orphaned children.
"Another experience that was an honour for me was to be one of the guests of the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice as an individual expert. I learned so much from a collection of amazing people from all over the world."
