Meza, who is from Chihuahua City, is a model and make-up artist and has a degree in software engineering, according to Miss Universe Organization's news release.

She is also an activist, and "works closely with the Municipal Institute for Women, which aims to end gender-based violence," the release said.

Meza also serves as the official Tourism Brand Ambassador for her hometown of Chihuahua, according to Miss Universe Organization.

Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, the first Black woman from South Africa to win the crown, had held the title since December 2019.

 

"What a moment!" Meza wrote in another Instagram post, sharing a photo of when she was crowned. "Ready for this journey!"

Meza will move to New York City "to represent the brand and various philanthropic organizations during her reign," Miss Universe Organization said.
