What do you like about being Latina?
Among all the great qualities and characteristics in the Latino community, the thing I love the most is our culture and heritage! It is so vibrant and deep. Being a Latina means we carry that energy and optimism wherever we go! Being able to carry this identity and traits are truly a blessing.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?People would be surprised to know that I am majoring in two Bachelor degrees, at two different Universities, at the same time! I swear I am more than what you get on social media, and quite of an introvert in person too! I am majoring in Accounting and Business Communications at University of Puerto Rico and in Exercise of Science and Health Promotion in University of Sagrado Corazón. Reading and learning are one of my favorite things! I believe education is a universal key and I love both areas, so why not both?!
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
My favorite colors are definitely spring tones! I love wearing basic pieces, layering them and giving it a little sparkle with some makeup, heels, purse and great accessories from @Sweetlemon_PR. My favorite Go to brands right now are from @LaGlorianaBtq and @Sweetlemon_PR.
What trends are big in your city?
Here in Puerto Rico, it is ALWAYS summer! That is why even in fall, we have Caribbean touches to our wardrobe. We wear cute hats, boots and trendy items that go along with our Caribbean weather but keep us fashion ready!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
My favorite designers would have to be 3! I just CANNOT choose! I admire @CouvertierMyrna since I was in my teenage years. Her daughter @EstelaCouvertier is a young entrepreneur who definitely deserves to be on the spotlight too! Also, @Jocelyn_DelgadoPR has always supported me and allowed me to be part of amazing collections. They truly are all my favorites in the industry.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I ADORE Zendaya! I even met her once in person and she is the most kind and humble person, I swear! Anything she wears just makes a fashion trend! She is a great example that it is not just about what/who you wear, it’s all about how you wear it and confidence is the key!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
Five years from now, I see myself being a Motivational Speaker and also giving back to the community through my brand: FitWays by Raishmar Carrillo. Ever since I entered the Miss Puerto Rico Petite Beauty Pageant, I realized the power of social media to share my voice and my story to make a difference in other people’s lives. I believe in giving back to where I come from, and my life purpose is to use the tools I have to motivate and help foster care kids and society in general.
