What do you like about being Latina?
I am simply in love with our culture. I love how genuine, collaborative, fun, and happy we are. There is so much beauty in every hispanic smile, it's contagious. We are happy with the little things in life, but we are hard-workers and are so grateful for anything extra! I love our food and our family values, and even though some people don't see past the corruption and poverty in our countries, I always see our beauty and I am proud to say I am from Venezuela. Latinas love to dance, and I am no exception. So that's something I definitely love about who I am and where I come from.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?I am a math nerd, which makes me extremely organized with my finances (a plus for when you want to travel so much). I love anything number-related. Give me a Sudoku or math puzzle, and I am happy girl. I guess this is why I studied engineering.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
Less is more <3 I love wearing white and light pink. This is so weird coming from a world where black is always "in". But I love how stylish and elegant white looks on me (probably on everyone). I feel like I always stand out when I wear white or light colors. I usually use accessories to add color to my simple but elegant white outfits.
What trends are big in your city?
I live in Miami so anything beach related is always in! This makes it a little bit tricky to look 'chic' if you only want to wear a pair of shorts. But that's what's exciting.. how can we make something so simple look fashionable? There is also a lot of Hispanic influence (love!) so I am always looking for the best boutiques and accessories from our home countries.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I love Carolina Herrera, always classy but effortless. I shop a lot at Zara, there are so many outfits you can create for an affordable price.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I think Blake Lively has a unique style, but something pretty similar to my taste. She always kills it on the red carpet.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
My goal for the next 5 years is to inspire as many women as possible to have confidence, to love themselves, and to live the life that makes them their happiest self. I hope I can help them achieve this through my fitness & health, style, and travel influence. I am also working hard towards having my own brand to support Latina beauty and fashion brands! Stay tuned.
