Mrs. New Mexico International®

Laura Tamondong

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
When I was going through an extremely difficult period of my life, my father said to me "keep fighting! My desire is not for you to be happy, but to be holy". I was so angry at the time, thinking parents are supposed to want their kids to be happy. I am truly grateful for my father's wisdom to point me in the direction of seeking the Lord and not only my personal happiness.

2.How would you describe your husband?
Helping other people truly energizes me and makes me the most excited. When I am able to use the gifts and skills God has given me to benefit and make someone else's life better, it is a natural high for me.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I feel I try everyday to teach people to see things through someone else's eyes, from a different perspective than just their own. When we are able to get out of our own head and have empathy for others, then the world becomes a better place.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
Because my life has been incredibly packed with amazing experiences and deeply painful moments as well, I think I would have to be middle age to fit it all in. So my guess would be early to mid forties.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Any time my husband and I have time to get out and reconnect without children has the potential to be a fun date. But some of the best times we have had together are going to concerts. Not only do they include great music, usually good food, but we seem to have made many major life decisions, such as moving or going on a vacation, at concerts.
