Miss California Natasha Martinez - Miss USA 2015 Contestant

Miss California Natasha Martinez is said to be one of the front-runners at the 2015 Miss USA pageant. In recent weeks, pageant co-owner Donald Trump has made controversial comments about Mexico, which have offended many people, including Martinez, who told the Associated Press: It was hard to hear. I think it's important to understand that immigrants come here looking for a better life, and they do make these hard sacrifices like leaving their kids and their countries for long periods of time in hopes that they will be reunited and that they will be able to have a better life here in America.Martinez's mother actually emigrated to the United States as a young girl from Nicaragua, so Trump's comments hit close to home.

Natasha Martinez is a Latina TV host for KDOC-TV in Southern California and is a former Disneyland princess. Martinez has also been a dancer since she was just 5 years old and was even a Laker Girl. Inspired by her mother, who is an eight-year breast cancer survivor, Martinez uses her position to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
