Evalina’s story is worth it admiration and attention of all in the world. A young girl who gave her all to accomplish her dream. Got stuck in a roller-coaster of experiences, what transformed her in to a young lady. With a lot to offer but, a well deserved respect for one of the best ambassadors of our nation.  After I saw this “short-documentary” of Evalina produced by her manager Manuel de Gouveia (TDS) and Chris de Geus (Color Bar Productions) titled “Story of a Beauty” in Papiamentu/Spanish. You will understand all about this magnificent beauty. Very proud of her, and thankful for her guidance with my sister Ruenna Mercelina (Miss Teenager  Universe Congeniality). And wish her all the best on her path accomplishing the first crown for our nation in Reina HispanoAmericana. G!
