Beauty and brains are not all she has, she also loves the outdoors and practices extreme sports and Crossfit. Additionally, she owns an activewear brand named after herself, Andrea Meza, that is coming out soon. If Andrea couldn’t get more interesting, she also loves to sing, a woman who has it all.
During Miss Universe, she talked about beauty standards and how stereotypes need to end and people need to move on as we grow into a new and more accepting society. She stated “Nowadays beauty isn’t only the way we look. For me, beauty radiates not only in our spirit but in our hearts and the way that we conduct ourselves. Never permit someone to tell you that you’re not valuable.”
All in all, Andrea is the full package, beauty, brain, and knowledge.
As a company, we are proud of our new initiative, iGrowSuccess. We are proud to be an international company and to have an office in Mexico. We are proud of women such as Andrea who strives to be the best version of herself while attempting to wear many hats.
It’s all about supporting each other and knowing that together we can accomplish more.
Carry Rhonda Morris’s quote with you at all times, as knowledge is power and power is influential.
