Ponce was crowned Miss Spain in June beating out 22 other beauty queens. Her win and beautiful Instagram pictures often keep her in the headlines. With her appearance in the upcoming Miss Universe contest, the Spanish beauty queen hopes to become a role model for young trans people around the world and inspire them to pursue their dream. At recent, in an interview with the Mirror, the 27-year-old model has reported her desire to be a mother, adding that she never considered herself to be a man. Ponce was quoted saying, “For me, maternity is more than just having ovaries. The orphanages are full of children wanting to be adopted and I can be a mother like anyone else.”

Orgullo por estar aquí, oficialmente representando todo lo bonito de mi tierra, mi cultura y mi gente. Trabajando para poder ser la mejor versión de mi misma, aprendiendo y mejorando como profesional y persona. Pero siempre con ilusión, la misma que de pequeña tenia viendo a esas mujeres espectaculares por televisión haciendo su pasarela, ilusión de pensar que hoy yo soy una de ellas y de tener la oportunidad de vivir algo así, una oportunidad para usar esta plataforma universal para algo transcendetal, algo que va mucho más alla de lo físico. Un mensaje de inclusión, tolerencia, respeto y sobre todo amor por una misma y por todos los demas. Me ilusiona el cambio, sentir que mi voz es fuerte y mi mensaje puede traspasar fronteras. Ilusión de pensar que se puede. ❤️💛❤️ . . Proud to be here, officially representing all the beautiful things about my country, my culture and my people. Working to be the best version of myself, learning and growing as a person and as a professional. Always running through my head that dream of mine I’ve had since I was a little girl, watching those breathtaking women on TV walking on stage. It is so hard to believe that today I am one of them and that I have the opportunity to live something like this... that I have the opportunity to use this universal platform for something very meaningful that goes beyond the superficial. Bringing a message of inclusion, tolerance, respect and above all, love. Self-love and love for the ones around us. Love for all. Change brings hope to my life; feeling that my voice is strong and that my message can go beyond frontiers. I’m filled with hope, and I believe... I believe we can do this. ❤️💛❤️ .

Earlier, Miss Universe Spain 2018, revealed in several media outlets that at the age of 11, she first began to explore her gender identity. In April 2014, she completed her transition. Ponce’s accomplishment is a big deal in truest sense for trans women as they were not allowed to compete in the beauty pageant. It was only in 2012, that transgenders were first allowed to compete in one of the most life-changing contests, Miss Universe. Not sure about her win as there certainly will be many presenters fairly competing to earn the Miss Universe 2018 crown, but Ponce had already impressed her fans for her boldest appearances. And it is certain, that she would become a wonderful mother too.
