How did you get started in Modeling?

My grandmother enrolled me in a modeling agency since I was a little girl, I just fell in love with the profession and started to participate in commercials and catwalks in shopping centers in my city

Anything funny that happened during a casting?

Once in a casting, I had to flirt with the camera and say a compliment, as I would say to a man with a lot of morbid. The truth is that it was too much fun because I am not a girl to give compliments in this way and also was a minor. But to everyone’s surprise, I won it

What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion is for me a way to show your personality, your character and creativity without needing to talk. it is a wonderful art

Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?

I love Gisele Bundchen, because she is chameleon, athlete, naturally beautiful and committed to her career

What are your goals as a model?

My goals are to participate in international campaigns, with famous designers that I have always admired. to see me on an advertising wall in New York, or some great city.

Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?

I like the great personalities, the people who impose, that’s what I admire the most, that’s why my favorites have to be Alexander McQueen, I like the class and style with which Karl Lagerfeld Chanel started, and my models would have to say Adriana Lima, Naomi Campbell and the talented Gisele Bundchen

How did you stay fit?

I eat healthy gudta, is not for me an obligation, it is a pleasure. I train at least three times per week and I get massages to reduce measures from time to time

How do you feel about the controversy of the size 0 in the industry?

I think that size 0 is a requirement that has gone out of style. the beautiful thing today is to feel handsome and the clothes fit you well in any size, you can highlight what you like most about your body. that’s what you have to show the public

What is fun and rewarding about modeling?

For me it is gratifying to be able to represent what each brand requires, to play with paper, to show art with your body and with your expressions. be able to be chameleon

And what do you dislike?

It is a difficult and mean industry, a lot of pressure, and if you do not know how to control you can fall into depression or psychological problems, so you must be very careful and very strong.

What other modeling projects have you done?

I’ve done commercials in Colombia and Panama, I’ve been a model and a TV helper, I’ve been the image of a gym in Abu Dhabi, among others

Name one beauty product you can’t live without?

Dior lip glow

What’s your advice for the newer models?

That they be persistent, that they do not surrender to the first No, that they focus and be disciplined with their careers to see great results

What are guilty pleasures food wise?

I’m addicted to sweets, so I sin with desserts and gummy bears

How often do you go to the gym?

Four or at least three times a week
