“Hi! I’m really glad to be a part of Miss World, welcome to my page!”

Yamelin is a student from Navojoa, a city in the Northern state of Sonora. Describing herself as ‘intense’ and ‘tenacious’ Yamelin loves challenges, and is always motivated to do her best. She adores playing sports, and can often be found swimming and practicing various athletics disciplines. Her ambition is to break into TV once her studies have finished, but she would also love to run her own restaurant, and hopes that both can come true in the future. In her spare time she likes to play the guitar, to read, and to spend time with her family.  Chicken Enchiladas are her favourite food dish.

“My country is color, it is an explosion in your taste buds; It is hard working people with really big hearts”

Auction Gift - Itsmo Clutch Bag

Mexico Auction Gift

A silk and leather clutch bag with a Juchitan flowers design.

Black velvet bears the beautiful embroidered flowers. These flowers are inspired on the Tehuana´s dresses. These were influenced by the old embroidered silk shawl, which along mangos, rice and spices traveled the seas in the Manila Galeon´s overstocked stores. This bag captures this long tradition, reinterpreting and enriching it.
