City you live in:
I currently live in Kissimmee, Florida, which is close to Orlando but with more of a latin flavor. It is very similar to Puerto Rico and it reminds me of where I come from. I love it here!

English/Spanish/Spanglish:
I speak mostly Spanish although I moved to Florida from Puerto Rico when I was 11 years old. I also speak English and some Spanglish.

Favorite Latin food you can’t live without:
I cannot live without Picadillo! I also love white rice and ground beef!! It’s not very fancy but it tastes delicious and it’s easy to make!

What is your Latina contradiction?
I don’t think I have a Latina contradiction… I think I’m lucky that I represent what it is to be a Latina very well.

When you think of Latin culture, what are the first words you think of?
Passion- Latinos have passion for everything they do, from family to politics to love to arts!

What is your ethnicity? Or where is your family from?
I was born in Carlina, Puerto Rico.

Latina? American? Both?
I am 100% Latina with an american twist.

Favorite Latin artist or music?
My favorite music is Rock en Español. I love Mana, Shakira, La Banda Algarete, Fiel A La Vega and I have the guilty pleasure of also loving Calle 13 for his controversial lyrics!!!

iPhone or BlackBerry?
I love my Android!

How do you describe your style?
I think I have a classic, trendy and sometimes edgy style… It depends on where I am going and how I feel that day but I like to mix things up and put my own touch to my style.

What is your favorite Latin restaurant?
Any restaurant serving traditional Puerto Rican food such as Mofongo, and alcapurrias o bacalaitos! yum!
