Telenovela star Sebastian Rulli was present in a private photo shoot in Los Angeles this past Saturday, June 9 with the winners of the contest La Experiencia Novelera presented by Verizon Wireless.
Angelica Frausto from Hawthorne, California was nominated by her daughter Marisol Frausto and her essay won the most votes explaining why her mother deserves the prize. Both Angelica and Marisol won a private photo shoot with Sebastian Rulli, a $500 shopping spree and two Droid Razr Maxx's by Motorola so they can stay easily connected to family and friends.
Her essay read:
"My mother, Angelica Frausto, deserves to win this prize because she puts everyone before herself and sacrifices her time and energy to better her family and friends. She is the person everyone looks up to in my family and community. Starting off her service to the community early, my mother has volunteered working in the Mar Vista Family Center for numerous years and served as an advocate and assistant to the teachers and staff. Moving forward, she has volunteered as a teacher at my local church and has worked in assisting children with the education needed to prepare for their sacred first communions. In addition to helping the community as a whole, my mother sacrifices to be the best mother she can be in every aspect.
"My mother has changed my life by setting the example of the perfect woman I want to be. She serves as my main motivation and inspiration for a bright future. My mother is always there for me to assist me in every way possible and never hesitates to help others. My mother deserves this prize because she goes above and beyond favors and truly services her friends and family.
"Since my mother lives a busy life, a 4G LTE Smartphone would be the best tool for her to organize her meetings and plans. It would be very beneficial for her. We have family in Mexico, including my grandmother and we like to Skype and it's great to be able to video chat. For example for Mothers Day, we Skype my grandmother and my mom cries when she sees her on the screen, it breaks my heart. Technology has come a long way and I'm glad my mother has this opportunity to use this tool to communicate with family in another country."
