Senorita Cicero is more than a pretty face
CICERO – It was when a little girl stood staring silently, adoringly, up at Lupita Diaz-Donato on Sept. 5 that it sunk into this year’s Seniorta Cicero that the contest was about much more than beauty and talent.
Diaz-Donato was crowned Senorita Cicero during the Cicero Mexican Cultural Committee’s annual pageant Sept. 5 to kick off a week-long celebration of Mexican Independence Day.
The 20-year-old DePaul University student competed with seven other contestants in a series of challenges that included a runway walk with traditional Mexican costumes reflecting various eras in the country’s history. There was also a talent competition and a question-and-answer session with judges, one of which was Alamia Schwerdtman, chair of the Miss Illinois Scholarship Association.
