Miss San Antonio Summary:

Rebecca Mendoza was a 24-year-old Magna Cum Laude Graduate of Southern New Hampshire University, achieving her Master's and Bachelor's degrees in the Accelerated Accounting Program.  Rebecca was a CPA Candidate and an auditor for a small CPA Firm in San Antonio, TX.

While Rebecca thrived in academic performance, she also founded her own Non-Profit Organization, the Community Connection Warriors, at 17 years old.  The CC Warriors, now a 501c3, encourages both special and general education students to break down barriers by working together through dance in an afterschool program.  This was an all-inclusive dance group currently in eight elementary schools around San Antonio with multiple schools on the waiting list for the 2019-2020 school year.

Not only was Rebecca Founder and President of her own NPO, she was also a Fitness Instructor at L.A.
