Name three music artists you’ve been listening to lately: Depends on my mood, but I would say I like the unique style of Bad Bunny. And my all time favorite, Spanish Rock Jaguares and Ed Sheehan.
Favorite Books/Magazines: Obviously VIGOROUS Magazine. And I’m currently reading Relentless by Tim S. Grover and I love The Secret.
Favorite Movies: Definitely The Notebook, and I recently watched Miracle In Cell 7. Great movies with a good message.
What are some of your professional accomplishments? (modeling or otherwise): All the accomplishments I’ve had in the couple of years with IPL, obtaining two Pro Cards and two Pro titles. I have a degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising. I design women’s clothes and had the honor to dress few celebrities like Alicia Machado, who won Miss Universe in 1996. I’m also a proud Finisher X2 of Hunter Selection 40hrs, which is an Extreme Endurance Training in Seville Spain.
Any cool modeling experiences to share? I have been modeling since I was 14 years old. During my teen years I did a few pageants and won a few trophies competing for Miss California. After that, I did many runway shows in San Francisco. I loved that stage of my life. Modeling in runway was very fun.
Where’s the coolest place you’ve traveled to for work? Did you get to party at all? I would definitely say Spain. I went twice in 2019. First in February, but I did not have a chance to explore or party. Then in November I got to visit Madrid, Pamplona, Córdoba and Seville. I’m totally in love with this Country.
Best things about Bikini Modeling? Worst things? Best thing is feeling proud to wear a bikini and see your hard work in the definition of your body. The satisfaction of seeing the hard work you put in to achieve the best version of yourself. I don’t think of negative things about it because I enjoy the journey. With time I learned to love my body more than I love food. For most people keeping a clean diet would be the hardest thing, but for me it has became a lifestyle.
Any advice for those looking to get into modeling? My advice is to be consistent with clean eating and stay active working out to be in shape. Be confident and smile. Always smile. Modeling is amazing and fun. You would totally love it. Have fun and enjoy it.
What is the motto or mantra you try to live your life by? Inspire others. That’s what keeps me going. I always try to motivate and be positive. When I see the impact that I have on people who look up to me, I push harder to give them the best example and motivation.
What keeps you busy? Working out keeps me busy. I’m currently working on an amazing project that has me very excited and busy putting together everything to launch very soon. I’m always doing something to keep myself busy. I can’t stay still. –laughs-
What is your view on tattoos? Tattoos are a way of showing your personality and feelings. I have five tattoos, all represent positive vibes and strength. I try to keep them classy and simple. I don’t have plans for more at the moment.
What three clothing items can’t you live without? Definitely active wear, since I basically live in the gym. But, if not, I love to wear dresses and dress up. I don’t have a specific item, just depends on my mood.
What is your dream job? Eventually I would love to own a gym where I can focus on Bikini Competitors or Bodybuilding itself. And a little bit of obstacle course training as well.
“WHEN I SEE THE IMPACT THAT I HAVE ON PEOPLE WHO LOOK UP TO ME, I PUSH HARDER TO GIVE THEM THE BEST EXAMPLE AND MOTIVATION.”
What do you do to stay in shape, or are you just a genetic freak? I wish I was a genetic freak, but abs disappear with ice cream. So I keep myself away from junk food and keep a clean diet. I workout 6 times a week and take my supplements to be healthy.
Are you interested in or ever tried any extreme sports? (bungee, skydiving, rock climbing, BMX, moto, snowboarding): Oh Yes!!! That’s fuel to my soul. I’m a very adventurous person, so everything that will give me adrenaline I’m in. I have already done a few like skydiving, jumped from a bungee, hiking for long distance, car racing and of course obstacle course racing and extreme endurance over seas.
Favorite Color: Red.
Favorite Food: Ice cream.
Dream Car: Audi R8.
Are you a fast or slow driver? Fast is fun, but dangerous. So I keep it moderate.
Favorite part of your body: My smile and my eyes.
Favorite part of a man’s body: Muscular Back.
Bars, clubs, both, or none? I’d rather enjoy nature or any sport activities.
Favorite beer, cocktail, and/or shot: I always have a cold Michelada after a competition, then get back on track.
Favorite city/country to party in: Spain, Mexico, Ensenada Baja California.
