Spotlight on One Brown Girl

Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Whether or not you're a fan of beauty pageants, there is no disputing the sea of Brown Girl beauties representing every corner of the world at the Miss Universe pageant. Miss Dominican Republic, Ada Aimée De la Cruz, the 1st runner up in the 2009 Miss Universe pageant held on August 23, 2009, is one such beauty.
According to her bio, Ada was born in Villa Mella and raised in Villa Altagacia and lives with her mother, grandparents, her younger brother and little cousin. In the Dominican press, she is fondly referred to as the Dominican Cinderella because her grandmother was a maid and her family grew up poor. Fluent in both English and Spanish, this 6' Brown Girl beauty is definitely a winner...
JUNE 8, 2010 UPDATE:  Ada has traded pageants for politics at age 23 and will serve as deputy mayor of the municipality where she was born after being elected in the May 16, 2010 legislative elections.  Click here for details.

But we are happy cause we know,that even the Venezuelans,known that Dominican Republic Still deserve the Crown,they really know that their candidate wasn´t that good to win.
