    She wanted to send a message

    Rodríguez arrived this past Monday at the facilities of channel 7, in Sabana Oeste, to look for one of the 10 places that the organization of the contest would announce for the grand final, which will take place in September.

    The resident of Freses de Curridabat assured in her presentation that she considers herself a “body liberation activist.” Gabriela Alfaro, director of the Miss Costa Rica organization, asked her about her “inspiration” to sign up for the casting.

    Rodríguez replied that she considers it a challenge “not only to represent what I consider beautiful for me but also to represent the many women who follow me and who see me as an example. So that they see that I am beyond a body and that I can represent it in a beautiful, special way and with great enjoyment and with great affection”. She added having a “non-hegemonic body, being hegemony the body accepted by society”.
