What do you like about being Latina?
I love being Latina, especially Puerto Rican. I love the climate of my country, the food, the culture, I enjoy every time I say that I am from Puerto Rico wherever I go. Latina's are characterized by our sensuality, our charisma, and we distinguish ourselves by our Latin flavor wherever we tread. I feel extremely fortunate to be born in a Latin country, where the Caribbean woman are not only characterized by their beauty, but for being hard-working, dedicated, self-confident women, capable of leading and excelling in everything we set out to do.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?Well ... One of the things that surprises people the most is when I say "I do not like fruits", and when I say I do not like them, it's NONE of them. On the other hand, one of the things that almost nobody knows about me and are very surprised when I talk about this is that I was diagnosed with "Meningitis" a month and a half after birth. At the time doctors told my family as a consequence I would have brain damage or a learning disability, however, thanks to God I am a healthy person and I have never suffered from any kind of problems or conditions.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
I LOVE pastel colors, white, black and red. I think those are the colors which my wardrobe consists of. For every occasion I find the ideal outfit, but I definitely can not miss my "Little black dress".
What trends are big in your city?
Puerto Rico is a very versatile country, where you can implement your own style. Whether it's jeans, tennis and a visor, a tropical look with a maxi dress or a more elegant and sophisticated outfit, everything depends on the person and their style.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I honestly do not have a designer or brand as a preference, but if I had to choose one it would definitely be Carolina Herrera, since I love her elegance and the sophisticated and classic look that her pieces show.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
If we talk about daring and youthful styles I love Olivia Culpo, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. But if it's about Elegance, I LOVE the classic and elegant style of Carolina Herrera.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I am currently at a very important stage in my life. I am a candidate for the title of Miss Puerto Rico Petite 2018, one of the most important competitions that praises petite Puerto Rican woman. If I win, God willing, I would create several projects where I could highlight and praise the youth of Puerto Rico. Projects where I can carry a message that everything can be done with effort and dedication and, above all, be able to combine them with one of my great goals in life: "BE A JOURNALIST". In 5 years I am sure that with effort and dedication I will achieve it. I know it's not an easy road but I've always liked the challenges and I'm a faithful believer that the universe does conspire in your favor, as long as your faith is unshakable.
