What do you like about being Latina?

I love the fact that I come from a country that has struggled for decades with violence, corruption and poverty, but still has so many talented entrepreneurs, artists, bloggers, designers, I mean there is so much talent in my country and in Latin America! We not only have the most beautiful women in the universe, but also the most prestigious artists in the world, I'm sure at least once you have moved your hips with Shakira or danced all night with Maluma and J Balvin songs. I'm really honored to be Colombian and to call myself "Latina" 100% ! ... also "My hips don't lie" literally, I got the moves and the curves for sure! (hahaha)

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

Sometimes when you expose your life on social media, people tend to believe you are just that, "an amount of followers, likes and comments", but my life and my mission is so much bigger than that! I'm 25 years old, but I already have 2 careers, a masters degree and a specialization, I have a full time job and I'm starting my own business at the same time. I take social media really seriously, although I can only do it in my free time. I aim to always GIVE, this is what fulfills my life, I'm a very spiritual person, and I strongly believe that we all have angels and we need to learn to communicate with them, I do believe in energies, karma and meditation, I don't like to call it religion but spirituality, its about tolerance, acceptance but also about believing so hard that actually everything you dream and desire, comes true.

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

To be honest I like neutral colors, I prefer to accessorize an outfit with colors, than to wear them. I'm in love with everything that has movement, I love flare , high wasted and mostly loose jeans, I'm not a big fan of tide clothes. I do have a lot of light pink clothes, and my favorite print is leopard. I prefer gold over silver, earrings over necklaces, but, I love small chains, and I'm currently obsessed with layering my chains.

What trends are big in your city?

I live in Miami, so there is so much variety and style trends going on that I will lie if I say I know them all. I see lots of fannypacks, over-sized jackets (because Miami weather is crazy), Combination of boots with long dresses or skirts, the mix between denim and silk, and vintage sunglasses!

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

I'm in love with Zimmermann, all the designs are classy, with structure and movement at the same time, lots of neutral colors and specially white (J'adore!) and this brand enhances the feminine silhouette so good without being vulgar at all. It has vintage vibes as well which i'm crazy about because I love to see how past trends find their place in the new era.

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

Our Miss Universe Paulina Vega, she's not only style goals but beauty goals as well. Love the fact that she always prefers to look natural, and real, this is what all women should strive for.

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

I'm Latin so being 25 I see myself married with kids in 5 years!! (Haha) just kidding, I see myself as an empowered women, with an important power to influence peoples live, not only by showing outfits, trips, or cute pictures, but by helping others overcome their battles, fears, and insecurities through spiritual methods. My main goal is to learn and grow as a person everyday to provide my knowledge and experience to those that look up to me, life is not easy all the time, but we can overcome anything with the power of believing, and having a healthy mind and lifestyle.
