What do you like about being Latina?
I love our culture, strength and sense of community. Latinas are notorious for their passion and I think that is a beautiful thing.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?In high school, I created a mentoring program for young girls designed to teach key goal setting techniques; heavily highlighting the importance of writing. I started drafting “Girls with Goals” as a freshman, and worked on this project for four years. As a senior, my program received national recognition from the US Secretary of Defense, in addition to earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, which is only received by 5.4% of eligible Girl Scouts. It was the most amazing experience and I plan to reinstate the program soon!
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
I wear a LOT of black and a lot of red. I am always in heels; I alternate between nude tippy top pageant shoes and knee high boots! I always pair that with crop tops, jeans, leggings or shorts.
What trends are big in your city?
Detroit-ers have natural talent for creativity and business. So, between all the artist, musicians, chefs, mixologists, and entrepreneurs; Growth and development have become defining trends of Detroit.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
Versace and Tom Ford! I have an overall admiration for both designers.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
Sofia Vergara, everything about her is so beautiful and I love that she is always smiling!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
My ultimate goal is to create a life I don’t need a vacation from. Intentionally, my job is my life. I love working freelance. Being contracted by multiple agencies as a commercial, print, and promotional model has allowed me to expand into other areas of the industry. Whether it is as an automotive product specialist or state bikini pageant director, I love being able to travel nationally, while exploring different opportunities to have fun and work at the same time. In 5 years I plan to still be working in front of and behind the camera, but with noticeable growth!
