  Patricia Velasquez was born in Guajira, Venezuela onJanuary 31, 1971, the fifth of six children. She was raised by herparents, both of whom were educators, in a third world country.Needless to say, Patricia's life was far from luxurious. Sheattended San Vicente de Paul High School, and after her graduationin 1987, headed for college to study engineering and accounting.Although she was being raised to go into the Venezuelan oilindustry (which is basically the only choice for Native Americanchildren from Venezuela), a chance event led her to switch plans. Afriend of hers wanted to become a model, and one of the picturesshe sent to a casting call in Caracas included Patricia. As fatewould have it, the agency wanted exotic Patricia. After a year ofcollege studies, she left for Milan in pursuit of a modelingcareer. In 1998, she strutted down catwalks in ready-to-wearfashion shows for designers such as Antonio Berardi, Bella Freud,Corinne Cobson, Claude Montana and Dolce & Gabana,to name a few. As for print, Patricia appeared in ads for Chanel'sAllure, Roberto Verino's Verino fragrance, as well as Victoria'sSecret. She even donned swimsuits for Sports Illustrated's SwimsuitEdition in 1994 at the age of 23. She has participated in themother of all beauty pageants, the Miss Venezuela pageant, and canbe seen in such movies as The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. Patriciahas tried and succeeded in branching out from the stereotype of amodel. Besides, she has more noble reasons for her very fullschedule. She grew up in a very poor family in Guajira, andpromised herself that she would get her family out of thatsituation. After her first few modeling gigs, she bought her familya new home, made sure her 3 brothers received a college education,and still supports causes such as the advancement of Hispanics,fair treatment of indigenous peoples, and the fight againstpediatric AIDS. She also launched a foundation to helpVenezuelans.
