What do you like about being Latina?
I love how united Latinos are. We’re strong people that are always striving for a better future. We’re hard workers and we‘re not about giving up. Growing up I spent a lot of time with my grandparents in Mexico, so I was able to fully live and take part in our rich culture. Also, I love the food!
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?Besides English/Spanish I speak French. I also grew up in two places at once. #bordergirl
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
It used to be a lot of black and blues, but as of late I really love everything from lilac to pink, orange and yellow. Pretty much bright and pastels.
What trends are big in your city?
I live in New York, so anything goes. Right now I’m seeing a lot of tailored suits, dad sneakers, teddy coats (it’s still cold here!), and always denim.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
This is tough as I don’t have just one favorite brand or designer, there are too many great ones! But lately I’ve loved Ganni, Nanushka, Everlane, everything at Lisa Says Gah! and Tictail. I love discovering indie brands and new and up and coming designers.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
Hmmm this may sound cliché but I actually like Kendall Jenner’s style. I also really like Emma Watson’s style and I think Salma Hayek is always looking so chic. However, I don’t follow any of them on Instagram.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
In 5 years, I hope to have a better understanding of my personal brand and the type of content I want to offer. Not sure if I’ll still be in New York, but no matter what, I know I want to continue to be involved in fashion and hopefully inspire others through my content.
