Soy orgullosamente del Valle de Juárez (I am proud of Valle de Juárez),” told El Diario. “Estar cruzando de un lado para el otro no me hizo desprenderme de la ciudad y mucho menos negar mi origen. A veces las cosas se pueden ver duras durante algún tiempo pero todo es posible. No hay ninguna persona que te pueda decir que no puedes más que tú misma así que luchen por sus sueños. (Being across from one side to the other did not stop me from being part of the city, much less deny my origin. Sometimes, things can be hard for some time but everything is possible. There is no person who can tell you that you cannot do more than yourself so fight for your dreams.”

On December 14, 2019, Alvídrez will compete against more than 100 candidates from around the world for the Miss World 2019 title at the ExCeL London in London, England, U.K. Ponce’s successor will be the 69th woman to hold the title.
