Miss Hispanic 2021
Andrea Suárez was born in Mexico City and is currently 22 years old. She is the daughter of Leticia (aka “Doña Leti”) and José Luís Suárez and has an older brother and sister. She graduated from Technical High School and later enrolled in MVU – Mexico Valley University – where she majored in Chemical Engineering for three years.
Five years ago she decided to come to the United States to reunite with her family and continue her studies. She studied Business Administration at HACC for two years and consequently transferred her credits to Millersville University from where she plans to graduate next year. Her objective is to put into practice her knowledge and degree to benefit the family business—Chilangos Mexican Restaurant in Lititz.
Andrea is a very intelligent, very outgoing, and very compassionate young woman with a great spirit of collaboration. Her great passion is to work with children. In her free time she loves to read, swim, but above all spend time with her family so that in a way she might “recuperate” the long years that she was away from them. She is honored to have been designated as Miss Hispanic 2021.
Year in review
In August we crowned our Miss Hispanic 2021, Andrea Suárez! At a lovely event hosted by Eden Resorts and Suites, LAA was joined by former Señoritas Hispanidad Rachel Gonzalez (2017) and Garialdy De Jesus (2013) and Nelian Cruz (2019-2020) who passed the crown on to Andrea.
The crowd was entertained by Ballet Folklorico Yaretzi and Pancho Bongo. This yearly formal event is a highlight for the entire organization and our community.
September began Hispanic Heritage Month as well as our annual Festival!
Andrea represented the organization at the Festival and promoted the scholarship fund at a booth raising money for future Miss Hispanic endeavors.
In October, Andrea visited Lancaster Friends School to speak with students during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Students from grades 1-8 asked questions about Mexico and about Andrea's life story.
Did you know her favorite dinosaur is a Tyrannosaurus Rex? Now you do, thanks to a 3rd grader!
