I was born in Puerto Rico and my family moved to America when I was 2 years old. I was raised in Philadelphia, PA. Growing up in Philly, Such a big city, I learned a lot of independence. from an early age. Public transportation is very common so I learned how to go everywhere on my own. I got lost so many times it was comical but, I figured it out! Having parents that didn’t speak English that well, I was the families translator you could say. I felt so important as a child like I had this huge role to help my family! At an early age, I knew I liked to help people.
RESPECT: Can you tell why you are intrigued by modeling industry?
The modeling Industry has become more accepting when it comes to size, shape, the color of a person. I do believe we have come a long way but, we can do so much more.
I personally believe that the importance of Mental Health is absent from the industry and I think that the modeling industry is a great opportunity to bring this to light.
RESPECT: Why do you think it is so important to let women of all shape and sizes that it is essential just to be themselves?
The media constantly tries to give us the definition of what a “perfect” woman is. Those are lies. Once you are Healthy in all aspects of your life everything will fall in order.
I’ve definitely thought about it and written some ideas down.
Never feel like you HAVE to do something that you are uncomfortable with to get publicity.
Pam, Domonique, Traci, Amanda. Love you all!
RESPECT: Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself using my platform to influence this generation and the next generations to come. Showing them that a healthy state.
