Yannylbis Jimenez was born in Santiago, Dominican Republic on June 15, 1990. In 2003, she came to live in the United States with her family.
She graduated from Baruch College with Bachelors in Finance. However, she has always dreamed of becoming a model. In 2016, she decided to participate in Miss RD US because it was her dream to go to Miss Universe and become an ambassador of her country. It was one of the best experiences of her life. She placed in the top 10. Even though she did not win, she felt like a winner. She could not have made it that far without the support of her family, friends and the organization.
She wants to be a role model for young girls, so they can believe in themselves, demonstrating their strength and endeavor, trusting that everything we propose in life will be accomplished. She wants to use Top Model Latina as a platform to start her modeling career and she is confident that it will open many doors.
