NEWS anchor Genesis Suero showed up at the Met Gala on May 2, 2022, in an exquisite dress that has received a wide array of compliments.

Who is Genesis Suero?
Before she was the host of Telemundo 47 News, Genesis Suero was a Miss New York beauty pageant contestant originally from the Dominican Republic.
She was 13 years old when she moved to the US with her dad and toldEl Diario it was difficult to integrate into their new community and build a new life.
Her mother stayed behind because she was divorced from her husband and Suero said she dropped out of college to work in restaurants and supermarkets to help her mom.
"The immigrant who emigrates to any country, not only to the United States, leaves many dreams in his country," Suero said.

She added, "I want to be that voice for that person who sells pots, who works in factories, who works in supermarkets, say: 'Genesis went through the same thing, Genesis had adversities in her life and today she is on such a big platform that is 'Nuestra Belleza Latina.'"
Now 30 years old, Suero is a news anchor for Telemundo 47, a Spanish-language broadcaster.

“I said, this is what I want to do. This is what I want to be. This is going to be my career.”
In 2018, Suero achieved her dream when she competed against 133 other women and was crowned Miss New York, allowing her to continue to compete in the Miss USA pageant.
She said her inspiration at the time to continue competing in pageants was not motivated by the monetary winnings or her passion but by her ability to make people smile.
"I really want to share the gift that God has gifted me,” she said. “He hasn’t gifted me financially, but he has gifted me a very amazing personality.
"I can make people laugh and I can make them happy, and if you can do that you don’t need money.”
