Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador met Monday's Mexican woman who won the Miss World 2018 contest, Vanessa Ponce de León, who returned to her country to advance in the project for the benefit of indigenous peoples.
"Any gift you have is useless if you do not serve it for others," the model explained in its meeting with López Obrador.
With the social project, which, along with her beauty, made her the winner of the competition, Ponce will "support Mexican indigenous people" and "create a lasting change in Mexico," he said during the meeting, which took place in the National Palace.
The Navalí project, which has operated in the central state of Guanajuato for five years, consists, according to the model, of providing "education, health and nutrition to children of native-day labor families".
In this way, children, instead of going to work, are taken to a place where they receive education and medical help.
López Obrador, for his part, expressed the "pride" that presumes for Mexico that Vanessa Ponce has won Miss World.
"For the beauty and social dimension of these competitions," leftist leader said.
At the meeting, where Mexican organizers of the event were also present, the young woman had the crown and the winning ribbon and an elegant white dress.
The director of the event, British businesswoman Julia Morley, was also at the meeting and thanked Ponce for her charity work.
He also transferred to López Obrador his intention to "teach the world as the Mexicans are".
The politician gave "thanks to both of them for spreading what our beloved Mexico is; A good people, hardworking, full of culture, happy and happy," he concluded.
