What do you like about being Latina?

I love my culture, I love how people are becoming more proud of being Latino or Latina. I love being bilingual and being able to spice things up by throwing a little Spanish phrase after having a full long conversation in English just to express yourself better.

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

I think people would be surprised to know that I have a very tiny mole on my top lip that I usually hide with lipstick AND I also have a super cool mole in my right eye under my pupil that can only be seen in the light.

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

My favorite color is red & outfits that make up most of my closet consist of black clothes, sweats and jackets

What trends are big in your city?

People were wearing a lot of checkers for a while, then the plaid was in style and now that the season is changing I’m seeing a lot of floral prints. But in California, sandals are always in style.

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

My favorite designer is Donatella Versace, I recently watched a questionnaire video about her and I loved her super dry humor, she’s just so careless but when it comes to creating Versace fashion she never disappoints!

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

I’m obsessed with Olivia Culpo’s style! She’s so beautiful! Every time I see one of her posts on my instagram timeline I’m always like "YAS QUEEN."

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

In 5 years from now, I want to have graduated university with a degree in film & video editing. Perhaps I will be traveling with the love of my life & furthering my career in what I enjoy doing & perhaps I’ll be a business women of my own video company or just something with my name on it.
