    I am not only a fluent Spanish-English reader/speaker but also a bi-cultural person who has a broad solid background. I also have a passionate interest in different expressions of music, especially many American styles and their combinations (Folk-Country, Jazz, Pop, Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Soul, and so on), dance, stage and screen, and some other forms of artistic expression.

    Chelsi Smith, the model that was crowned Miss Universe in 1995, died last Saturday, September 8th. The former beauty queen suffered from liver cancer. She passed away at 45 years old.

    Shanna Moakler, the 1st finalist of 1995, referred to the death of Chelsi. “Actually, I do not know how to express to the world how funny, loving, intelligent I was. She changed my life. If it were not for her, her beauty and her energy, her incredible destiny, I would not even be where I am today. Even when she was sick, she was positive and radiant, and she never stopped laughing”, said Moakler.

    Later, in 1996, her successor was the Venezuelan participant, Alicia Machado.
