For Dayana Mendoza, Celebrity Apprentice is all about helping the Latino community.

The former Miss Universe didn’t waste time in taking her $20,000 check to one of her favorite charities in New York —The Latino Commission on AIDS— an organization focused on giving Latinos the help, support and research needed to fight HIV/AIDS.

“The point is to help,” said Mendoza with tears in her eyes Sunday on Celebrity Apprentice.

The Venezuelan beauty took some time out of her busy schedule to chat with Fox News Latino about what it takes to compete on the Celebrity Apprentice and what it is like having Donald Trump as a mentor.
