On being asked previously as to why she would be an ideal representative of her country at an international platform, Estefania said, “Regardless of the fact that I am in a world of 'superficial' beauty, I am giving myself the opportunity to understand the value of everything I have achieved so far as a professional. But it is now or never because there is an age that limits you to compete.”

On being crowned Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2020, Estefania also took to her social media to reveal her emotions in a post captioned, “I have to believe this is meant to be. Life handed me a precious adornement and placed me face to face with an honorable purpose. All queened-up and crowned, I am humbled by the opportunity of carrying this golden emerald crown. Representing my country and my people on a platform with great potential to further social change is a responsibility I cherish with all my heart.”

“Thankyou @muniversepr for expressing your trust in what I have to offer and thank you Puerto Rico for your endless support. I am thrilled to take this step together with you as Estefania Soto, Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2020”, she added.

Estefanía’s beauty, confidence and intelligence are her three strong pillars as a model and a woman who will give a strong competition to the other ladies at Miss Universe 2020. Last year, Madison Anderson Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2019 represented her country at Miss Universe 2019 and with her stellar performance, she placed as the first runner-up at the end of the event finale.
