What do you like about being Latina?

I love being Latina because there's so much diversity within our people. When you think of a Latina, there isn't one particular look that comes to mind because we all come in different shapes, colors and accents. That's the beauty of being a Latina.

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

People would be surprised to know that I used to practice kickboxing and play soccer. I used to be a total tomboy since I grew up with all boys in my family. That's one of the main reasons why I always stood up for myself when bullies crossed my way.

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

I have my closet color coordinated but as I take a look, black seems to take over, even though I love pastel & nude colors. My favorite outfits are a combination of chic and formal casual. I'll wear a beanie with a blazer then throw on some thigh high boots. Just because.

What trends are big in your city?

I attend SFSU, and it seems to me that most of the style trends are going back to the 90's. The styles are urban but with a little 90's flavor to it; chokers, high waisted jeans with high rise and sunflower croptops. Very neat!

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

I'm a very simple girl. Since I have a curvy body, it's whatever can fit and look good on me. I shop everywhere so I don't have a specific place where I shop. I do like brands such as BCBG, Guess and Pink. My favorite designer of all times is Carolina Herrera.

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

My personal favorites are Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson & Jennifer Lopez. They kill it every time.

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

Where do I see myself in five years? I see myself owning multiple businesses, working in a major production company as a director/ screenwriter or owning my own production company, working full time as an actress and possibly thinking of children.
