What do you like about being Latina?
I think growing up Latina in the U.S. gave me the awareness of how beautiful different cultures merging together is. To this day I still see it as an advantage. To be able to understand, from a young age, that we are not all necessarily raised the same and the fact that we might not all think/look the same is not a bad thing. If anything it is something we should encourage. To be able to learn from one another is invaluable. Oh and the FOOD. Tacos, lots of tacos.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
Read the question above… most people are shocked to hear that I’m Latina but more specifically Mexican. I love to break that preconceived notion they might have regarding what a Mexican should “look like”. I love to be a representation of the beautiful country that my family is from.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
BLACK. It’s so versatile to transition from day to night wear and so easy to mix and match with other pieces.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
To be honest I’m not really into dressing myself based off of certain brands/designers. Although I can admire a designer’s style and quality pieces I prefer to choose pieces that are not only appealing to me but that I also feel the most comfortable in. That’s when you’re able to be your most confident self. Comfort is key regardless of the brand.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I love Sophia Miacova’s style, she continuously looks so effortless yet trendy. The same goes for Julie Sarinana. I love to look through their instagram’s for inspiration.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I’ve learned that plans are meant to be changed and that sometimes what you think you might want now is the complete opposite in the future. Nonetheless, I firmly believe that setting goals and plans in order to attain those goals is important. In 5 years I would like to see myself furthering my brand and community. As well as implementing initiatives to make a positive influence within my community. I would love to have my own non-profit organization. I just want to be able to help others with my influence
