What do you love about being Latina?
I love that people view us Latinas as very powerful and outspoken women. The love and pride I have for being Latina is very hard to put into words. Its one of those things that you just feel but can’t explain.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
That I am a published author. I wrote a motivational book which tries to show how we can turn negatives into positives.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
I don’t even do it consciously but half of my wardrobe is white. Besides white, I love earthy tones. In terms of outfits, because I live on a tropical island, my closet is made up mostly of skirts and short dresses, but that will have to change now that I am moving to NYC.
What trends are big in your city?
Because of the amazing 80 degree weather all year long, crop tops, jean shorts and maxi dresses are always in trend in San Juan.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
My favorite designer is Ellie Saab. Seriously, what is not to love? Every single design of his is a work of art.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I love former beauty queen turned model Olivia Culpo’s style, very chic and high fashion.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I have a degree in Advertising and Public Relations and I’m also a lawyer. However, in 2015 I was Miss Puerto Rico, a job that I enjoyed throughly. My goal in 5 years is to put all my academic credentials and my experience as a queen in becoming an ambassador for a fashion/beauty brand.
