1- How relevant would my GMAT score be? If I obtain 690 will it hurt my chances by a lot? you have to put this in the context of the pool you are applying from... from Mexico a 690 is not as far off the mark as the average-- but that being said-- when HBS or any school admits for deferred status-- it means they are betting on you to be a top performer... based on something... leadership, grades or GMAT or all 3. So having a high score helps-- it is not everything but it helps. I suggest you apply with the best score you can get-- take it as many times as you think will be effective-- then focus on what else you control- like the essays.
2- My essay topic is about resilience and the challenges I've had to overcome to obtain the experiences I have, is it an interesting topic?
Depending on how you tell the story-- and how it fits into context of your application overall. We can help you tell your most compelling narrative.
