Describe yourself in three words.
Quiet, friendly, ambitious
What trait do you like most about yourself?
I like how i don’t take crap from anyone. If I don’t like something, I say it. I don’t let people walk all over me.
How long have you been modeling, and how did you get started?
I’ve been modeling since 2003. I started when my mom put me in modeling/etiquette classes in Puerto Rico to help with my self-esteem and confidence.
What are some of your modeling highlights so far?
I was a semi-finalist in Maxim’s 2009 Hometown Hotties contest. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to different cities, and modeling has helped me get into the gogo dancing scene.
What do you do for fun?
I love to travel! I’m always driving somewhere in my Scion.
What is your best beauty secret?
Ha, ha! I don’t have one! I’m lame.
What are some of your upcoming projects?
Well, I’ll be re-designing my website again soon, and I’ll be traveling a lot more this coming year, so stay tuned!
Do you have any advice for aspiring models?
Just be yourself. Someone somewhere is going to like you and book you, but also expect to be rejected a lot like I have. Either way don’t let it get to you. When one door closes, another door opens.
Why do you love 12VSpotlight?
The lights are really cute and convenient
Do you have any closing remarks?
I just wanna say thank you to all those have have supported me and have followed me all these years. I’d be just another girl without all of you. *hugs everyone*
