We are the only beauty competition that is looking beyond beauty; We want our candidates to have both beauty and brains.

Another example of determination and ambition, is former Diaspora Model and 2nd Runner-up, Johanna Sambucini, who won several titles since she participated back in 2006 and currently holds the title of Miss New York US 2012.

"Being part of our competitions, models will be able to get hands-on experience and will be able to see that hard work and good ethics always pays. In any field one might go, one needs much more than a pretty face to be successful. Our competitions, can purposely be challenging, because we want to see how models will react when they have to face changes.

Miss Diaspora Models International, is an unconventional, adventurous, and fun competition.

Miss Diaspora Models International Competition, is not a one week,one month pageant. It is more than that. We usually meet with the models in the week-end. Every year the curriculum is different. Some of the activities we have with the girls are: photoshoot(s), dinners, promotional events, and one or two rehearsals sessions per week, for about two months, before the actual show. The rehearsals consist of teaching the girls to walk, pose and move. We also look carefully at the girls' ability to dance, handle stress, follow instructions, and interact among themselves and with others. Even though models are competitors, and are vying to win the Title of Miss Diaspora Models, we want them to be able to be friends, by the end of the competition.

All of our candidates are beautiful, talented and have the qualities of a supermodel. " Gabriela
