I am very happy with the contest, I am very grateful for everything I learned, but another contest would be too much. That opportunity must be for someone who really wants … Obviously I prepared myself, like everyone else, to be Miss Colombia, and I had won, obviously I would have continued with the whole process,” Laura said.


Other winners were: Jenifer Pulgarín Candelo, 1st runner-up; and Laura Juliana Lamus Vargas, 2md runner-up.
