She dedicated her bronze medal from the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, to the memory of her mother, who passed away earlier in 2019. "She is the one who encouraged me from the beginning to pursue my dreams in weightlifting." (ecuadorenvivo.com, 29 Jul 2019; eltelegrafo.com.ec, 29 Jun 2019)
She likes being in the same sport as her sister Neisi Dajomes. "It is satisfying to have my sister in the same sport, we help each other and she gives me lots of advice, and pushes me to work hard and enjoy weightlifting. She is my role model and the one who always supports me. But when I compete against her, she is just another rival, I won't give her any advantage and will give my best to beat her."
