The most beautiful girl in the world declined to discuss her kidnapping which occurred just a year and a half ago but just like all the pageant princesses do she took advantage of the occasion to call for a global peace.
I want to raise my voice and tell the world that violence is not the answer”.
Dayana Mendoza is 22, is a 5-foot, 10-inch (178-centimeter), green-eyed woman who loves learning languages and photography. Her career ambition is to become an Interior Designer.
