She is a manager in a company dedicated to development, personal and professional growth. According to an official file of the Miss Peru organization, “She is an independent woman since she was 16 years old, she has always liked to work for her dreams and never give up. From a very young age she understood that her life purpose was to help others, she wants to continue working for and for her country “.
From its history, the successor to Janick Maceta “Seeks to inspire others and teach them never to lower their guard, fight for their ideals and raise their voices in favor of change”.
Yely Rivera intends to create an NGO that helps children and adolescents to develop personally and professionally, so that they free themselves from all the negative experiences of the past and can be successful people.
The 2021 Miss Peru’s court includes Camila Escribens and Mei Azo as first and second runners-up, respectively.
