Roger Alan Musa Ramírez
(Roger Allan) is a Mexican actor, he has worked as interpreter
in some tv shows in Televisa Corporation and as English teacher
in Miss Mexico Organization during several years, he has a Language
School in Mexico City and a Restaurant with a partner.
Mr. Anec: What year do
you begin in Miss Mexico Organization? (also called Nuestra Belleza
Roger. I began in Miss Mexico
Org. in 1996, during Rebeca Tamez reign (Mexico 97); I worked
with her during last months as Miss Mexico.
Mr. Anec: How might describe
every one of your students?
Roger: Obviously, everyone has
been different, although all of them had the “mood”
for conquer the crown, each one has been focused in made Mexico
proud. In beginning all have scared and sad because they were
far from their parents, home and friends, but when the training
starts they have no time for thinking anything, just how to reach
Mr. Anec: Could you please
tell us any anecdote with your singular “Miss students”?
Roger: I can tell you so much!,
but one anecdote I remember with a lot of affection was on 1998,
Silvia Salgado (Mexico’s Miss Universe semifinalist) and
I were together in order to see the Miss World on tv because Vilma
Zamora (Miss Mexico World 1998) was competing and we ordered sushi,
since there I always have to dinner sushi when I see Miss World

Mr. Anec: What do you
think is easier, to teach at Miss Mexico or to teach at girl who
doesn’t have the title of most beautiful woman in Mexico?
Roger: When you are a professor
first and foremost you have to be a professional, I had have personalities
of politic life, tremendous journalist, actors, bullfighters and
beauty queens, when you are in class that type of things it doesn’t
matter, the most important thing is that you teach correctly the
Mr. Anec: Which is your
favourite Miss Mexico and why?
Roger: oh my God, what a dilemma!,
I have my sentimental favourites because we have spent very good
moments. Without less importance to all others, I would say that
Silvia Salgado (Mexico 99), Jaqueline Bracamontes (Mexico 2001)
and Marisol Gonzalez (Mexico 2003), with they I have a very good
friendship and they trust me.
Mr. Anec: and also which
is your favourite miss (it could be from any international pageant
or any winner)
Roger: I am Amelia Vega’s
friend (Miss Universe 2003), I find her divine!
Murray, Miss Mexico 2000 and Roger
Mr. Anec: Roger, Do you
know if any girl didn’t agree with the general training
Roger: Oh yes, there were several
complaints, sometimes because they didn’t like the diet
or the catwalk classes but I think it was because of tired, suddenly
they don’t have a rest due to their duties, they are training
since 6:00 hrs. til 23:00 hrs. and they don’t have time
for going to the cinema or to see the boyfriends.
Mr. Anec: How important
is to speak English in International Beauty Pageants? Some girls
have won without English knowledge
Roger: It is important because
3 weeks previous at Pageant, rehearsals, classes and tv spots
are in English, all directions are in that language, the point
of Miss Mexico Org. when teach this subject is that the girl comes
the Pageant with the enough English knowledge in order to understand
Mr. Anec: Roger, You are
in touch with the queens, tell us what they feel prior to go the
pageant and how they feel after the pageant when they already
know the results?
Roger: some days before leaves,
they are under pressure, they have press conference, they go all
TV shows, radio, dinners, breakfast organized by sponsors and
friends, they come at Pageant so tired but with high expectation
and focused in conquer the judges and the crown. I’ve realized
when they return that they are agree with decision’s judges,
the only one who return sad very sad was Jacqueline Bracamontes
(Mexico 2001), I saw her 3 days after the pageant and we cry together.
She was one of the big favourites for the crown, all thought that
she was at less a top 10, but never happened, I remember those
moments and I get angry, I swear!

Mr. Anec: We know about beauty pageants forums on internet
as Mexico as abroad, Do you know if any Miss Mexico was affected
by commentaries said in forums around the world?
Roger: People do not have to be
so drastic when write down their commentaries, sometimes doesn’t
win our favourite but who is the winner deserves respect and support,
I think Marisol Gonzalez (Mexico 2003) was affected by photomontages
in forums of her photos with dogs face, also Erika Cruz (Mexico
2002) was touched by evil commentaries about her

Mr. Anec: Many countries
accept girls who are living abroad but they are nationals, Do
you think Mexico should follow this practice?
Roger: personally since the girl
is Mexican she has the right to represent their country although
she lives in China
Mr. Anec: Are you in touch
with some Miss Mexico?
Roger: of course, I keep in touch
with some of them, each one has made a difference in my life,
and they have been not only students but friends. I have been
the honour to be confident, psychologist, spiritual advisor, but
mainly, friend of each one of them.
It is very pretty that after so many years, we even have a good
friendship. I am always in touch with them, celebrating each one
of its triumphs. I want much to them and I am thankful that we
continue being friends.
