Name: Sara Paola
What do you love about being Latina?
I would say the temper, but my boyfriend cannot agree with me. I´m just kidding, the temperament is 'in famous' but I love being a 'Swedish' in a Latina body. I am very proud of my roots but I was adopted when I was little and have missed a lot of South American views on, for example, customs and traditions, etc. But I found my family two years ago in Colombia. So to me I'm a Latina with the best of two worlds.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
I got pregnant when I was 16. Today I'm 32 years old and got two children. And my son turns 15 and my daughter turns 9 this year.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
I work as a stylist for commercials, magazines and tv. I love color and my favorite is red. I love dresses. It is a smooth garment that fits all occasions and you can also dress up using various accessories. Dare to think outside your 'comfort zone' and play and match with color, shape and material.
What trends are big in your city?
Lots of garments in pastel tones and floral patterns, pants with crochet and knitted sweaters with trumpet sleeves. flat cap, high side slip pants and floral shoulder tops.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I'm not really much for designer clothes and I did´t have just one favorite. I like different brand i like is Zara, River Island, Gina Tricot and Rebecca Stella etc. I travel a lot and I like to find nice clothes in stores all over the world.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I love the look of Miss Universe Colombia Andrea Tovar. She has a very feminine and classical style. I'm also inspired by Instagram influencer Micheli Fernandes. I love her outfits.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
Within five years, I'm married to my boyfriend, we want a third child and have lived in South America for half a year, who knows ... maybe we'll stay there or some where else. The world is big and in order to be discovered. We will continue to travel a lot as we have a common goal to visit most of the world's countries together. Both of our jobs allow us to have the world as our workplace. I want to reach out and inspire more people through my social media to travel and discover all the beautiful places in the world.
