Meet Alberto Horacio Martínez Kezner, Mister World Puerto Rico 2014


Alberto Horacio Martínez Kezner hails from the island of enchantment, Puerto Rico. For the past weeks, he has been representing the island nation in the world's greatest male beauty competition, Mister World, in Torbay, England. Alberto is an engineering student and also enjoys surfing, taekwondo, swimming and gymnastics. His journey in Mister World has earned him fifth place in the talent competition with a martial arts demonstration and a top ten placement in the extreme challenge. Here is a short interview we recently had with Alberto!


1. Describe yourself now and describe how you see yourself in the future.
My name is Alberto Horacio Martínez Kezner. I am a 19 year-old mechanical engineering student of the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico. I’ve been modeling for 3 years in Puerto Rico. In 10 years, I see myself as a Civil Engineer and leaving a mark in my island and maybe in several buildings. 

2. Who is your greatest inspiration? How that person has influenced your life? 
The greatest source of inspiration is my parents. They have influenced me and inspired me to fight and work hard to strive and obtain what I want. 

 
3. What activity makes you lose track of time? 
Surfing is what makes me lose track of time. 

4. How a friend would describe your personality? 
I think a friend would describe me as a person with a positive attitude, creative, honest, kind-hearted and genuine. 


5. Is there something that you do different than most people? 
Wow! To be honest, I think I am a normal guy. It is difficult to give you an answer on that one. 

6. What qualities Mister World should have? 
He has to be a kind, charismatic and hard-working kind of guy with the desire of helping others. 


7. Describe your daily routine. Any workout/health/nutrition tips? 
I have a work-out routine to strengthen my muscles and increase resistance. My diet is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. 

 8. If you were granted 3 wishes for your country, what would you ask for? 
I would wish for employment to our citizens, a stop in all kinds of violence and unity in our government in order to efficiently work for the country. 


9. Describe Puerto Rico to someone that does not know the island. 
Puerto Rico is just incredible because of the warmth of its people, its beaches, the food and the music. 

10. There is an exodus of young Puerto Ricans seeking opportunities abroad, What would you say to a young person in Puerto Rico to try to make him or her stay? 
I think I would try to convey the message that we really need young individuals to present new ideas, different ideas to make positive things happen and make the difference in our country. 


and finally... 
Personal Motto: Never give up 
Favorite Food: Milanesa Napolitana with French Fries 
Favorite Color: Blue 
Favorite Music Genre: House and electronic
