Miss Fiesta San Antonio 2018 Carla Juarez visited Stonewall Flanders Elementary School Wednesday afternoon to donate more than 100 books to second grade students.

During her visit, she spoke about the importance of reading and going to college. The students also had the opportunity to ask her questions about her life.

Miss Fiesta shared how one of her initiatives was to promote literacy in San Antonio.

“When I was younger, I couldn’t speak English and I didn’t have a lot of books at home,” she said. “So, when I was planning my community project, I knew I wanted it to be about literacy. With a new book, I hope students feel inspired to read during the summer.”

Miss Fiesta personally handed out the books and reminded them to read at home. The students graciously accepted the books and thanked her for her generosity with big smiles and hugs.
