Melanie De La Caridad Moreno Ochoa is a 16-year-old aspiring model. Melanie is a Cuban native, born in La Habana. Melanie currently resides in Miami, FL and she is studying at Miami Dade College in a program called SAS. Since a very young age, Melanie enjoyed singing and dancing, but it wasn’t until middle school; when she was about 13 years old that she began to have a passion for modeling. Her acting teacher at the time suggested for her to participate in a modeling contest hosted at her school and from there, she embarked on her journey. Melanie later then went on to participate in her first pageant; which she did not win, but realized that modeling was something she saw herself doing for several years, in addition, it helped her to become more confident within herself.
After graduating from John Casablancas modeling school, she began to attend more castings to audition for runway opportunities. Of which she was sent to cast for the Super Chic Miami Art Basel Edition Fashion Week show. She did not fail to impress with her confidence and love for the runway. At that event, she was discovered to participate at the Miss US Nation pageant to further her modeling experiences. She entered the state pageant representing Teen South Miami and won the Miss Teen Florida US Nation 2021 crown. “Five years from now I plan to accomplish many things in the modeling industry. I’d like to do a lot more runway.
Shows for big and small brands, be in commercials and several advertising campaigns. As Miss Teen Florida US Nation 2021, I hope to be a role model for people of all ages, ethnicities, backgrounds, and sex that want to get into the industry. I want to help guide people to find what they truly love and want to do in life, and help accomplish it,” says Melanie.
