Kayla Kotsch is primarily an autism advocate who was recently named Worlds Miss United States Tourism 2022. She is also a writer, public speaker, and passionate about inclusion. Kayla was diagnosed with autism at a young age, and it has fundamentally shaped who she is today. She has overcome many obstacles in her 19 years; all due to the amount of advocacy she has received.



Kayla decided in 2019 that she wanted to make a change, a change for herself and for other people like her. She overcame substantial bullying sustained in school as well as being excluded from school events, etc. due to her autism diagnosis. She got tired of having no voice and took a stand to show people that she is different, not less. Now she strives to make a change on how people view autism, showing the wonderful things about autistic people, as well as advocating for a change in state and federal laws. Kayla has spoken within her school, community, and state advocating the need for change and acceptance. Today, not only does she work in her platform of autism awareness, but she has also taken on the platforms of Pet Partners and childhood cancer awareness.

Kayla’s goals for the future are to be able to one day start her own organization that will help those with disabilities learn to advocate for themselves and grow a career in the fashion industry. Being presented with opportunities and role models such as Avadora, Kayla is grateful for the recognition, the inclusion, and the feelings of acceptance. These opportunities only encourage her drive in advocating and in reaching her goal.

Gigi Nunez
Dominican businesswoman, born in Puerto Rico and brought to the Dominican Republic where she lived most of her life. The daughter of lawyer parents, she was raised in the city of La Vega. When she finished high school, she was influenced to pursue a renowned career and decided on medicine in which she studied for almost 4 years when she realized that she did not feel love for this career and abandoned it, returning to the United States where she decided to pursue her dreams. There she starts in the business world from the bottom, working tirelessly to achieve entrepreneurship. After some failures and closing doors, she saw how the sacrifice and effort paid off and saw her business take off with its own wings.

Before becoming the woman she is today, she went through a transformation process, not only mentally and spiritually, but also physically, going from 263 pounds to losing about 115 pounds and moving to a healthier and more self-confident state of mind.

Founder of The Money Team Group LLc firm, Cleaning Professionals of Florida and MLM Contractors Solutions. From its beginnings in 2019 when they only billed about 40,000 dollars a year until today where the company already bills 7 digits, Gigi has dedicated herself to providing a source of employment to hundreds of people each year, to being supportive of Latinos and an example to follow, to show them that it is possible if they are willing to give everything, to motivate women to dare even with children and family to fight for a space in society and in the business world.

Currently a philanthropist, collaborator in many social and charitable causes, she is preparing to launch her foundation The Gigi Núñez Foundation. She received recognition from the New York council as an influential Hispanic. She is an influencer on social media and in numerous TV and radio interviews to which she has been invited to share her impressive story of rising from the rubble of hard work to the pinnacle of success in both her companies, as well as in her multiple investments in real estate.

She recently launched her first ebook “Decálogo de la mom emprendedora”, available on Amazon and on her website where she provides guides on how to start an entrepreneurship and, as she herself describes, helping you to do better by saving you some mistakes.

Many projects are underway and many more in sight for this Latin woman, fighter, mother, writer, businesswoman, generous and powerful.
