Chicago Latina Lands a Position in America’s Next Top Model

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsFolks are asking, “What is in the water in Humboldt Park?” Local native Bianca Andaluz, known as Kanani on the next series landed one of the top positions in the next season of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20. Andaluz is a multi-racial beauty who represents today’s changing face of multiculturalism. Born to a Puerto Rican and French father and a Cuban and African American mother, Andaluz is extremely proud to represent her city of big shoulders.

Andaluz, a single mother of one year old daughter Samarrii, started her pageantry interest in 2006 and placed runner up in the Miss Teen Illinois Puerto Rico pageant in 2008. It was then that Andaluz decided to pursue her dream in modeling and compete for the title of America’s Next Top Model. “Kanani’s story is a wonderful example of today’s youth that manifesting your dreams can lead to possibilities and opportunities” said Cesar Rolon, founder of Latino Fashion Week. Andaluz’s immediate goal is to captivate the title of American’s Next Top Model and someday open her own youth runaway shelter and safe haven for troubled youth.
