I am extremely honored and privileged to be the 2018-2019 Miss Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Queen. I am excited to see what this year holds and what memories will be made. My goal is to be the best queen I can possibly be by promoting the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta to the best of my ability. I want to educate others about our rich history and Spanish/Indian cultures, while informing them about our delicious tamales and wonderful festival.
