1. How did you get into modeling?

I actually just watched a lot of TV (America’s next top model) and thought hmm I think I can do that. So I joined yearbook in highschool, only so that I could borrow their super expensive camera and just kinda started shooting myself with the self timer. A lot of fails but some looked cute for myspace back in the day haha! I thought I was killing it in those pictures, but looking at those pictures now, ew.

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling? I

work as a personal trainer, that consumes most of my day… along with the constant texts from clients.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

Stop communication with both my parents has been probably the hardest thing I’ve done but also probably the best. It has helped me mentally and just oversll nade me happier and independent/ self sustainable. Spontaneous, hmm I’d say bungie jump.

4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

I love how it connects everyone so easily and the opportunities that arise from that connectivity. Also the fact that I can find out what your little sister wore for her 1st date without being in the same country, how crazy is that?! What I hate is how bad it also disconnects us from everything around and from living in the moment. Just because you didn’t post a selfie, doesn’t mean you didn’t climb that tall mountain or what ever.

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

If its not gym wear Nike is my 1st choice, its some cheap in the moment and comfortable kinda outfit. If I go out unless I’m trying to get laid, i barely put effort in what I wear.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Self-critical, underdog, dependable.

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

I was born in Mexico just south of the border of Texas, but grew up in the Rio Grande Valley Texas. I grew up the epitome of what the American dream is.  Move to the US to become a citizen, get a degree and become a social media model!! (Kidding) All jokes aside,  I did my undergrad in Missouri and what I missed most about my hometown in Texas was the food and the atmosphere. Its a very small town but I feel like the people make do with what is available there and its just a fun time, anytime.

8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

Social media celeb, Kyle Krieger and Tv celeb Kellen Lutz

9. Do you have any special Talents?

With what little booty the good lord gave me, I actually am really good at twerking. I don’t thinks its a thing now, kids these days do the nae nae or what ever but I can still get down to a good beat and twerk it out. I actually won a contest back when I was 21 and was flown to LA to be in a spring ad campaign for the underwear brand Andrew Christian.

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

My social media feed consist of hot models that post sexy pictures or their great life traveling the world as well as fitness models to inspire me and to keep current with other training styles. Everything else I see in my feed is Rupaul and whatever other scandal concoction the Kardashians have pulled.
