What is the best thing that I love about my work? I love getting to network with all walks of life. I love being able to share my story and what makes me unique as well as listening to others.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? My idea of perfect happiness is being on set every day. Acting and modeling has brought me pure joy and has helped me overcome so many obstacles like being bullied or being sexually assaulted.
What is my greatest fear? I used to be afraid of failure till I realized every day I will be told no. That one yes is what I need to focus on.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? I look myself in the mirror and listen to those people that called me ugly. I have slowly gained confidence through modeling and I hope to just inspire others who do not think they are beautiful enough.
What is my greatest extravagance? I honestly am a huge saver. I want to travel the world so for now I do not spend much money at all.
On what occasion would I lie? I’m a very honest person. I feel our society lies to be perfect when honesty exposes flaws and changes them for the better.
What is the influence of role models, in my work and in my life? My mom, dad, and my brother are my biggest role models. They show me that with success, you can give back to the underprivileged community.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? The definition of a model to society is what real beauty looks like. We need to show them that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? Modeling and acting were my biggest outlet in the times I was being bullied. Every day I’m on set is just another blessing of pure happiness.
If I could, what would I change about myself? I would not change a thing. I know my physical features were not meant for the current standard of modeling but I hope to change the industry for the better.
What is my greatest achievement in work? I got to do a photoshoot with New York and Company and Eva Mendes picked us to do her collection.
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? My home because it is where all my memories are. No matter what happens in the outside world, I know I can always come back home.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? I do not drink but I love to eat my mom’s cooking. Nothing beats a Mexican mom’s cooking.
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, and partner in crime? My mother takes me to all my fashion shows, photo-shoots, and acting gigs. She comes and watches every show, no matter what.
Whom would I like to work with in the future? I hope to work with Tyra Banks because she has been such an inspiration for me from her curvy body to her big forehead. She rocks what other people call our flaws.
What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on? I have a possibility to be on a reality show. It is super confidential currently but be on the lookout.
