What do you like about being Latina?

EVERYTHING! The culture, the food, the warmth of Latin people, the food, the traditions, the food, the heritage, Seriously the FOOD! Haha, I'm Mexican and I'm completely obsessed with everything my Latin culture provides, since I was young my parents taught me to be proud about my heritage.

What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?

That I was born in the US, SoCal actually. Born and raised until I decided a couple of years ago to permanently move to Mexico with my mom and dad. People in Mexico find it very strange that I decided to live in Mexico when I could live in the "land of opportunities" -- guess I just really fell in love with this country. Oh and that I don't like tequila AT ALL! People also find that very surprising.

What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?

I'm definitely more of a jeans and really comfy shoes kinda gal. I'm very casual in the way I dress. Very California Girl. I don't really like high heels (mainly because I have no clue how to walk in them) and you'll definitely see me in any form of denim. I tend to wear a lot of white, blue, black and pink.

What trends are big in your city?

I live in a small pueblo in Guanajuato so there isn't really a huge fashion or trend following. People tend to wear the same things.

What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?

Gucci Gang Gucci gang Gucci gang. I'm obsessed with Gucci but your girl can't always afford it so I tend to shop more at Zara they have all the Gucci vibes at only the fraction of the price.

Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?

Julie Sariñana, Chiara Ferragni and Millie Bobby Brown, is that weird?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?

Definitely married and with my very own successful business.
