To Empower Women

A Mission to Empower Women
by Luisa Diaz Brown

Former Ms. Venezuela International, Luisa Diaz Brown, is pleased to announce her return to the pageant stage for the first time in 20 years for a very good cause. Mrs. Diaz Brown’s passion and commitment to empowering women has motivated her to accept this invitation as Mrs. Cosmopolitan in the 2019 Mrs. New York America Pageant. This pageant honors and celebrates married women of New York, their families, and their communities. It will take place on March 31, 2019 at the RIT Inn & Conference Center in Rochester, New York.

Since winning the Ms. Venezuela International crown in 1999, Mrs. Diaz Brown has built a successful career in the entertainment industry while always striving to empower women. She founded the Mi Amor Gala, a fundraising event she hosts in partnership with Safe Passage, a nonprofit whose mission is to help women who have been victims of domestic violence. In 2017, Mrs. Diaz Brown wrote and self-published her first book, Sexy Is Timeless: Ten Timeless Sexy Assets That Lie within You. In this empowering guide, she discusses ten assets that every woman naturally possesses and can use to fully realize their self-worth.

By participating in the Mrs. New York America pageant, Mrs. Diaz Brown plans to continue her legacy of empowering women of all ages. She says, “This opportunity will provide me with an additional platform to bring my organization to a larger audience, where I can continue to voice my message of transforming women from the inside out. Becoming Mrs. New York America would allow me to continue spreading my message about how women should never forget how beautiful and worthy they are. When you empower women through bettering their education and building their self-esteem, you are in turn empowering their family, friends and community as well.”

Luisa Diaz Brown has always used her voice to encourage and support women in everything she has done throughout her career. Her passion and dedication to her community is what makes her an exceptional candidate for the 2019 Mrs. New York America Pageant.
