I am eternally grateful and joyful at this moment and the many moments this past year! My reign as Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 has been filled with wondrous experiences. Experiences that transformed my life in meaningful ways I never imagined could even be possible. This is such an unforgettable journey made more memorable by the warmth, friendship, and wisdom of amazing people from various walks of life and different cultures. Having known a great many of them made me realize how my life right now can empower people toward the fruition of their dreams and aspirations. Children, in particular, will always have a special place in my heart. I strongly believe the value of education can stand on firmer ground by strengthening the family.This may be a tall order given society’s varying circumstances but we should at least dream and work for a better future for the human family. My reign may end but my journey toward helping create a better world for the little ones has just begun. To all of you, I am grateful for the blessing of your friendship and love. May faith, hope, and love be upon us all. I am Teresita Ssen Marquez, your first Filipina Reina Hispanoamericana. Muchas gracias.. maraming salamat po ❤️🇵🇭 #reinateresita
