| Resilient, confident and genuine, Kathleen Navarro was born and raised in a predominantly Latin community located in Houston, Texas. Her ancestral lineage traces back to Monterrey, Mexico. She attributes these cultural influences to be what molded her to be the Renaissance woman she is today. She garners an impressive & versatile modeling and social outreach catalog that is expanding by the day. she is currently still able to find time to invest in her future as she pursues a business degree. her personality and charisma are the true driving forces behind her success, as she genuinely loves to make everyone she meets feel as welcome as if they were in their own home.

On a whim, Kathleen entered a few pageant competitions in 2018. She had yearned for experience and was surprised when she ended up dominating the other contestants in the 2018 Miss Houston Latina pageant. She recounts, “I was completely shocked and elated in that moment!” A deciding factor for the judges was Kathleen’s genuine and wholehearted passion for the feminist movement, immigration reform, and representation for young Latin women.

During the competition, onlookers and attendees described Kathleen as a vivacious, passionate, determined, and lively individual. Her confidence in herself led her on a journey to become a runway and print model, to enrich communities as a public emissary, be featured in a plethora of media outlets (from print to television, and beyond), and has allowed her to negotiate partnerships for causes she believes in and that reflect her values. The life experiences that she gained during her tenure as Miss Houston Latina 2018 helped her to excel and win the 2019 Miss Texas Latina pageant competition.

Kathleen has relocated to Miami, Florida for a change of pace and to pursue new opportunities that will allow her to expand her brand. She recently signed a modeling contract with the Coca Cola brand Topo Chico. She cannot wait to discover what is next! |
