She would also look forward to open a second headquarters of her Gymnastics Club in the East of Caracas and create a casual / urban clothing brand for a target of women between 18 and 28 years old.



Isbel has mentioned that her family’s unconditional support and love motivates her to keep going. She explained that with their immense support she wants to keep educating and teaching the young girls the values and tools for their growth and development.

The delegates of the competition to express their plans if they are crowned and share their personal advocacies. Mariem mentioned, "It’s a very special day for all Miss International delegates, but for me, it’s doubly special as today I am also celebrating my birthday. In my country, we have the custom of not revealing our birthday wish, but today I want to make an exception. My dream, my birthday wish is that if I were to be privileged enough to be your next Miss International, I can continue to stimulate children around the world to read. In Venezuela, I have devoted a great part of my time serving as a storyteller for less favoured populations, and I’m living proof that reading is the way towards knowledge. My goal as Miss International is that every child around the world have access to books that speak about tolerance, respect, and happiness. I firmly believe in the power of dreams to change societies and think if everyone of us takes on the duty of reading a story to a child, that child will be more educated and the world will be happier. That is my birthday wish."



Just like Mariem, Isbel Cristina Parra Santos is strong, determined, and focused woman who wants to bring back the crown of Miss International to Venezuela. She maintains herself with the gymnastics and urges everyone to do the same in order to stay stress-free and bring in the positivity.
