Laura Olascuaga is a journalist who received her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University del Norte in Barranquilla.
She’s a freelance model and works in the communications department of the government in her state of Bolivar to aid in the development of vulnerable communities.
She supports the Colombian ministry of defense, specifically the Army and military, to raise awareness for the needs of indigenous communities like “Kogui.”
After living in a war-torn area, facing poverty in her country and living through the COVID-19 pandemic, Laura realized the importance of gaining knowledge and believes it's a solution to many of the world’s conflicts.
She dedicates most of her time to speaking about depression due to being a victim of cyberbullying and plans to widen her impact and inspire the youth.
Laura hopes to become a diplomat ambassador for Colombia one day.
Laura learned sign language so she could communicate with her fellow sister, Yenifer, her country's first runner up who’s deaf.
She is proud to say that she took off her high heels, crown and sash, and became a marine for one day at the Colombian Army.
