Ingrid Brenes is a 41-year-old Costa Rican that has overcome her complexes with her big-size and proud to “represent them all” in her triumph of being crowned Reina Turismo Latino Plus 2017.

A preschool professional and currently working as an assistant at Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly, Ingrid will be representing the country at the Miss Curves Universe Model in the Dominican Republic in November.

In her own words, “Yo nací para ser natural ! Y no perfecta.” (I was born to be natural! And not perfect.)
