For Cynthia, Mrs. Massachusetts is more than just a beauty pageant competing for a crown and sash. She said her title and life journey embodies “women empowerment.“

“My late husband suddenly passed away in Israel. Our young son and I were not even able to attend the funeral. The inability to participate in the services in Israel filled us with anxiety. I then decided to visit an aunt here in Massachusetts, and fell in love with the scenic towns, the cultural activities and the history. I ended up relocating from Miami to start a new life with my son in Framingham. I am blessed to have met someone who quickly became my best friend, and now is my husband. He is a local attorney. He has proven to be incredibly kind and supportive on my personal journey,” she said.

“During Covid, my husband and I started an organization to help widows and those who are grieving a loved one both financially and emotionally. My story made me realize how important it is to empower women—so that no woman ever feels neglected, and without options. My story could have destroyed me and made me bitter. But I instead, use my experience to help women—to lead by example of how you can transform your life no matter what the circumstances you find yourself in. This is one of the many reasons why I believe I embody what Mrs. Massachusetts truly stands for.”
she added. “I look forward to sharing my personal experience of courage, tenacity, and hope with women in Framingham and throughout Massachusetts.”

She also plans to continue volunteering at her son’s elementary school in Framingham.
