What do you like about being Latina?

Being a Latina and a Millennial, I have the best of both worlds. I absolutely love my culture (food, art, and language). I am able to connect with many people and have a great level of understanding for diverse cultures. I grew up in a Spanish only speaking household and went to an English only speaking school. I grew up embracing my Latina heritage, thankfully, because of my wonderful mother and grandmother, who took the time to make sure I grew up not only being bilingual but also multicultural.

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

After a recent enlightening ancestral DNA test, many were surprised (myself included) when I found out that I am 16% Nigerian, 19% Spaniard, 25% Greek, 15% Irish, and 20% Native American! Being a Latina is not only being from one place, but being a melting pot of history. 

What trends are big in your city?

Athleisure is a really popular trend right now in Orlando. Adidas and a dad baseball cap with heels tends to be perfect attire for date nights for any occasion, even Netflix and chill. Haha.

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

I am a sucker for Chanel, and Lululemon. Vintage Chanel pieces are made with such amazing quality and detail that they last a life time, if not, more. It makes any outfit look classy and well put together. I truly love how consistent they are with their brand management and style.
With Lululemon, you can wear their famous black leggings dressed up or down. I Travel a lot. So having leggings that I can workout with, wear to parties, or go into meetings without looking too casual, is a plus. They have amazing quality that lasts a long time!

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

Camila Coelho is my idol. She is the definition of a multicultural Latina that embraces her culture, as well as, others. Her high sense of style is unbeatable. I get a lot of my ideas from her. She is so healthy and an amazing spokesperson for our Latina community!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself connecting with more Latinas and becoming a face for Latina millennials. I really think that in that audience segment we are truly missing a voice and a face. Social media has made it much easier to connect with other like-minded people.

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

I always have to have a primary color on. In art school I learned the importance of color and the color wheel. I always stick to primaries including yellows, reds, and blues!
You can never go wrong with a pair of fitted pants, a light loosed and airy shirt (tucked-in only in the front), a statement belt, or throwing on a fedora. Oh, and don’t forget the jewelry! Statement pieces make up any outfit.
