The Ms. Health & Fitness Competition is an online voting competition that featured thousands of active lifestyle models from all over the world. 

If she wins, Marquez, an El Paso High School teacher, said she has already thought of how to use the prize money.

“I would upgrade my classroom, finish paying for my Master’s degree in bilingual education and donate to La Casa de Abuelitas in El Paso. I have a big soft spot for grandmas,” she said.
