Who WE Are – Sophia DeJesus

Royalty Inspired

Over the summer, Miss Sophia DeJesus , a second grade student at Wilbur, was crowned Little Miss Hispanic Delaware 2019.  The pageant began in 1972 and is celebrated with the Wilmington Hispanic Festival. Both are hosted by Nuestras Raices of Delaware Inc., a community nonprofit that promotes Latino culture.

 The event and scholarship program aims to build self-esteem and confidence, while showcasing the students’ natural beauty and intelligence. The pageant also highlights culture and creates public awareness about the Hispanic community’s contributions in Delaware. Congratulations Sophia, and thank you for representing Who We Are! 

Sophia is #WhoWEAre.
