My name is Raquel Robles, I have been working as a model for more than 10 years. It is my passion and I have worked as a model during all my studies at the school and university.

I also love sports such as sky, paddle, tennis, and swimming. Moreover, I had been singing opera since I was 9 years old, and it is something that I really enjoy. as a professional.

I would like to share something special that happened to me 10 months ago. I entered the international beauty pageant competition Miss Global as a Miss Spain and representative of my country. I won and it changed my career. It just happened. I never looked for it. I have always been a professional model during all my university studies as I mentioned. However, I must admit that since I was young I have always been attracted to these contests. Achieving something like this is like a dream come true. I struggle to find the right words to express what I feel.

One day I was working for a top fashion show and one of the representatives of the beauty pageant suggested that I participate in the conquest. Since then, everything has moved forward until I managed to be chosen as Spain’s representative for the international beauty competition. Having this international studies and background was an extremely breaking point that really helped me to win.

Now that this dream has come true I can’t wait to take Spain to where it belongs and win the international competition. Still, just the idea of representing Spain is one of the biggest duties and honor I can have.

Because all of us are winners.

- Tell me something to remember you.

Since I started in the world of fashion, many people have told me that I have a great resemblance to Penélope Cruz, especially during my time living in the United States and Taiwan.

For me, it is an honor to be compared to a woman like her, since she is a great professional. I would like the public to assess whether they see the resemblance to Penelope Cruz or not. Could it be her double? Or could it be the Penélope Cruz of fashion? What is your opinion?
