Caitlyn Acevedo, 18, is currently enrolled at New York University, working to earn a Bachelor of Science in Media, Culture, and Communication.
She enjoys baking, writing, working out, spending time with her two sisters, and Chloe and Kiki, their sweet Shih tzus.
As the reigning Miss El Paso Teen, Caitlyn will use her platform to continue advocating for equality through her platform, called “Empowered Women Empower Women,” which aims to empower others to shatter glass ceilings in ways the world has never seen before.
Caitlyn says she finds the most joy in volunteering, because the people she meets always touch her heart, teach her about life, thus giving her the tools to grow.
Caitlyn’s legacy will be to connect with her community proudly, “Representing the beautiful sun city that made me the woman I am today.”
