Margarita Ramos is the LET's only member from Mexico and joins a small group of South American Rookies including Paula Hurtado (Colombia) and Maria Salinas (Peru). Margarita finished tied for 25th at the Lalla Aicha Tour School in Marrakech in December and shared her experiences from her first full LET event, the Lalla Meryem Cup in Agadir, Morocco. She wrote:
"I started my trip on my right foot (which is always a great thing to do)!!! I traveled from Arizona to NY to Casablanca to Agadir with one of my dearest friends from high school Cheyenne and her mother.

As soon as we arrived to the hotel we had first class treat. We arrived a little tired after our journey so we decided to go get a massage. The next day there was a tour prepared for Chey and I tagged along with her and her mom. It was amazing!!!! they took us to visit Agadir we went to the Marina, to the Old City up on the mountain, and to the Souks. We were also fortunate enough to have a camel tour!!! They took us along the golf course! It was truly and amazing experience. I was excited to play as it was my first LET tournament ever! I played my first practice round with Chey and the second day I played with a long lost friend that I met while living in Phoenix, Mikaela Parmlid. I felt very happy and ready to start the tournament. I was also very fortunate to have a very good local caddy. In conclusion ever since I arrived in Morocco there was something good happening and it made me feel very comfortable and helped me execute to the best of my abilities. I was extremely happy because I passed my first cut on the LET, although I would have loved to have my family there with me to share all of these great experiences with."
We are looking forward to more stories from Margerita!
