What have been your favorite modeling experiences so far?
Every experience of being a model is so fun and exciting! One time in particular would have to be the time I shot at a manikin factory in Mexico City. This was super-cool because it’s a three-story factory that makes all different kinds of manikins. They even had a “junkyard” full of unwanted and broken ones. I’m talking arms, legs and heads randomly piled on top of each other. Talk about creepy, but so cool. The concept of the shoot was to show you don’t have to be the size of a small manikin to be beautiful. I loved the meaning behind it all and the location was just so neat! On the way home from the shoot I saw myself on a billboard out in Mexico! Such an amazing and proud moment in my modeling career.
What is your personal fashion aesthetic?
My fashion “must have” would probably be bras; I enjoy a good supportive bra. Plus all of the different fabrics and colors make them so fun to wear. Definitely going with pretty bras for my personal fashion aesthetic!
If you were not modeling, what field would you be working in?
If I weren’t modeling, I would probably choose to be a flight attendant. I love to travel and see different people and places from all over the world.
What do you like to do on your off time?
On my off time I love going with my two baby boys and my husband to amusement parks! We have taken advantage of the Florida resident’s packages for all the fun parks in Orlando. Who doesn’t love Disney?
Has there been someone in your life that has influenced you, in fashion or otherwise?
My granny, Dona, has always influenced my style. She is always so beautiful and well put together. She accessorizes and wears such bright lovely colors. She always looks like a million bucks! I used to love trying on her jewelry and all of her gorgeous dresses.
What is your advice to aspiring models?
My advice would have to be to never give up on your dreams! Everything happens for a reason, so what’s meant to be will find a way. Enjoy every moment of this business, take advantage of every opportunity given, and put your heart and soul into your work. Live it up! Take risks! Have fun! You can do it!
