City you live in:
Born and raised in NYC.

English/Spanish/Spanglish
English and Spanglish but the Catholic school I attended for kindergarten & 1st grade insisted on giving me a certificate for “English as a Second Language”, even though all I spoke at that time was English.

Favorite Latin food you can’t live without
I literally cannot cut this down to one. I love churrasco, pernil, rice, asopao and rabo.

What is your Latina contradiction?
I don’t cook. I was never taught how to cook when I was younger and never really had a desire to cook. I have made a few dishes here and there but I have no interest in being in the kitchen. I also cannot stand beans. Aside from the cooking and dislike of beans, I do not speak spanish well. I tend to butcher the language, but that doesn’t keep me from trying.

When you think of Latin culture what are the first words you think of?
Music & dancing.

What is your ethnicity? Or where is your family from?
I was born in NY. My mother is Puerto Rican & my father is Dominican.

Latina? American? Both?
Both, I won’t deny any part of myself.

Favorite Latin artist or music?
Marc Anthony without a doubt. Genre wise, I love salsa, merengue & bachata.

iPhone or BlackBerry?
I just recently traded in my Blackberry for my Verizon iPhone.

How do you describe your style?
Elegantly sexy, classic, simple
