Iam closing one of the most beautiful chapters in my life. My reign as Miss Commerce
has truly been an unforgettable year filled with emotions, adventures, surprises, chal-
lenges, growth and smiles. My experience has changed my entire perspective on life.
As Miss Commerce, I discovered the power we have to reach our goals and dreams.

I am honored to be a part of a new generation of young adults who strive to make a
difference in our community. It was so rewarding to inspire young girls to be Miss Com-
merce in the future. It doesn’t matter what you have or what you don’t have; it’s about how
you present yourself and the respect you have for yourself and others.

This past year, I traveled to Aguascalientes, Mexico as an ambassador for Commerce.
While there, I was fortunate to explore the rich culture through food, arts, architecture,
tradition and best of all, the people. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the
orphanages and nursing homes. I will be forever grateful for this humbling experience.

I was delighted to serve as a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House and in my
community to cook, serve meals, distribute food and toys, and to interact with families
through activities during the holidays. I will always remember these times.

Throughout my journey, I have enhanced my personal growth and developed a sense
of fulfillment. It has helped me better understand my full potential; it strengthened my
confidence and enabled me to refine my positive qualities as a young woman.

I would like to express my gratitude to the Honorable Mayor Oralia Rebollo who has
always encouraged me to be myself. I also thank Mayor Pro Tem Ivan Altamirano, Coun-
cilmembers Hugo Argumedo, Leonard Mendoza, and John Soria for their support through-
out the year. I would also like to thank the Pageant Steering Committee; especially Susie
Altamirano for always willing to lend a helping hand, and thanks to the Parks and Recreation
Department. I would like to acknowledge my Royal Court and Young Man of the Year Mar-
cos Mendoza for such amazing memories and lasting friendships.

To my mom, thank you for being there every single step of the way. Your love and support
fueled my positive energy whenever I needed it most. To my loving grandfather in
heaven, I am forever grateful to you for teaching me to strive to become a leader and

be a positive role model. Without my family’s guidance, I wouldn't be the person I am
today. Los amo.

To the City of Commerce, my deepest thanks for allowing me to represent all of
you. There is no better feeling than making people happy with a simple smile and
photo. As I begin a new chapter in my life, each one of you will always be in my

In addition to the Crowning of Miss Commerce at the Miss Commerce Pageant, every
year the City selects a Young Man of the Year to serve as an ambassador for Commerce
and positive role model for boys throughout the community.

This past year’s Young Man of the Year is Marcos Mendoza, a senior at Loyola High
School. Mendoza applied to be Young Man of the Year because he saw it as the perfect
opportunity to be a role model for the kids in the community. He is also passionate

about community service, which has been a big part of his life and he hoped to show
how important it should be to the kids of Commerce. One major way he showed this
passion was through visiting the City’s Sister City of Aguascalientes and working to
help the less fortunate living there.
“By going on this trip and visiting the orphanages and convalescent homes, I made a
positive change in those people’s lives by striking up a conversation with them or being a
good listener to what they have to say,” he said. “Most of them had wonderful stories to tell or
talents to share such as playing the guitar or writing poems.”
“There is no better way to convey your love for the less fortunate and express how grateful you
are for the things you have than by giving your time back to the community and serving in any
way you can,” he added.
Mendoza also gave back to the community here at home, specifically at the Ronald McDonald
House, which provides comfort, care and support to children and families in Southern California.
In addition to representing the City at events and programs, the Young Man of the Year is given
a $1,200 scholarship to be used for pursuing an undergraduate education at any post-secondary
institution. The City of Commerce wishes Marcos Mendoza lots of luck in his future endeavors.
