Valley woman makes it onto Special K cereal box

She's only 5'2, but an Olmito woman is making a big mark on the modeling world.

Cindy Vela is featured on the cover of Special K cereal boxes in Mexico, Colombia and Puerto Rico.

Action 4 News skyped with her from Los Angeles where she's lived for 5 years.

Cindy is a model and actress and has been on an OPI campaign and just recently Special K for their Ximena Valero Vestido Rojo campaign.

Cindy says the designer of the red dress in the Special K contest handpicked her.

Cindy is a graduate of Los Fresnos High School and received her bachelor degree from UT-Brownsville.

Before heading to Hollywood, Cindy was a band director at a valley middle school.

Action 4 News will have a full report on how Cindy made her way to LA and onto a Special K cereal box Friday on Action 4 News at 6.
