Marisol Malaret Contreras, born on October 13, 1949 in Utuado, Puerto Rico, was the very first Puerto Rican woman to be crowned Miss Universe.
She started to work from an early age due to the death of her father and chronic illness of her mother. She was reportedly persuaded by Puerto Rican make-up artist Carmen Andino to compete in the Miss Puerto Rico pageant, then owned by Puerto Rican modeling guru and businesswoman Anna Santisteban. Malaret’s strong will, impeccable ethics and stunning beauty made her a crowd favorite in the local contest. Before winning, she worked as an executive secretary for a telephone company.
