So I encourage my project to be teaching, to campaigns for the children of our future,”  (This is just a part of her answer- please refer to youtube for her complete answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzyKv__ZBko)  winning her country, Ecuador,  the title for Ms. Earth 2011.  Ms. Alva is a top model and has a BA in International Business.
