Reina Hispano-America is an annual beauty pageant based in Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia since 1991. The annual pageant aims to celebrate Hispanic heritage, culture, and language of Hispanic countries around the world. The annual beauty pageant was originally identified as Reina Sudamericana (South American Queen). In 2007, organizers changed the name to Reina HispanoAmericana after it invited countries outside the South American continent such as Puerto Rico, Mexico, United States, Curacao, Dominican Republic, and the Philippines.

Teresita Marquez is now undergoing a rigorous beauty pageant training to par her beauty pageant skills and knowledge to reach one goal. This is to become one of the most competitive candidates for this year's edition of Reina Hispano-Americana. Even though she is already trained enough to clinch one of the national titles, Wynwyn is aware that she will be competing against some of the best pageant contestants in the world, which is mostly from South America. This part of the world has the highest concentration of beauty pageant contenders who are heavily trained before competing in international competitions.

The Reina Hispano-Americana organizers invited the Philippines to send a representative because the country was once under the Spanish rule for more than 300 centuries. The Spaniards totally enclosed the Philippine archipelago and prevented other Europeans and even Asian countries to enter the country during its rule. During the length of colonization, Spain heavily influenced the culture and lifestyle of the Philippine settlers. Spanish cultural influence transformed the Philippine cuisine, fashion, communication, and architecture, which is a unique influence in the Asian region. The Philippines was referred to as Las Islas Filipinas honoring King Philip of Spain during the Spanish rule.
