Taken from Ximena's bio from MissUniverse.com:
"For only the second time in its fifty-nine year history, the representative from Mexico walked away with the coveted Miss Universe title on August 23rd at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. A crowd favorite, the audience erupted when twenty- two year old Ximena Navarrete's name was called as she was crowned Miss Universe 2010.
Navarrete was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and had lived there all of her life until being tapped for the Mexico title, after which she moved to Mexico City to serve her reign. Although Navarrete hails from one of the largest cities in Mexico, she describes it as relatively calm compared to her new home in New York City.
Navarrete has worked as a model for years, but this beauty is much more than a pretty face. While in school she received a scholastic award for obtaining high honors and exemplifying outstanding behavior. She went on to study Nutrition at Univa in Guadalajara, and plans to complete her degree after her reign."
