What do you like about being Latina?
The Latinas have that "CHISPA" that no other person has (at least that's what I think) ... We have that "SWING" on our hips that makes us feel sexy. Latinas are very nice, we make friends much easier than any other. Studies show that Latinos are the friendliest people in the world. WE LOVE AS WE ARE, WE LOVE OUR BODY, WE LOVE OUR ATTITUDE AND WE LOVE OUR CULTURE. Latinas are women, workers, entrepreneurs and very sacrificial which is one of the things that I admire most, the desire to work, and take your family forward. We are so risky, many times we leave our countries, to go and look for luck in ANOTHER COUNTRY, many times you do not even know the language and that makes us strong, determined, confident, independent wrestlers ... and of course Latin food is the best in world 🙂
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
WOW! I think what people would be surprised to know about me is that I am very simple, people who do not know me would love me, I am a very authentic, humble and loving girl ... Sometimes social media makes other people have a wrong reflection of you. Sometimes we judge because of what we see in social media, but often the people we judge are the people with more feelings, humility, and charisma than many others. I am very simple, people who do not know me would love me, I am a very authentic, humble and loving girl.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
If you see my closet, everything is BLACK. So definitely my favorite color is black.
What trends are big in your city?
New York is the city of fashion. Everyone loves black, jeans and black boots with a shirt is perfect for being trendy in this beautiful city. In Puerto Rico we have beautiful beaches, so the perfect trend is something more tropical and chic.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
This year I have a great project and it's one of my big dreams. I am preparing myself to compete in Miss Puerto Rico Universe, if God allows it and I can win, then I will go for everything and with all my energy bring the 6th Crown to Puerto Rico which since 2006 we have not been able to bring it back. I am very sure of myself, and of the plan that God has for me. In 5 years I will definitely have my own agency to scout Latin models and send them to the American market, just as how I achieved my dream of being signed by international agencies, I would be happy to help other Latina girls achieve that dream...
