Happy to have you featured in Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? It started as a favor for my friend. She was launching a clothing brand for Latina women with curves and couldn’t afford to hire real models at the time. I took a few days off of work to assist her and model her pieces. I was absolutely mortified to be in front of that camera, I had never done anything like that before.
What are some of your best career highlights so far? This is definitely one of them. I got rejected before but I kept trying and here we are.
Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? Consistency. I’m an introvert, therefore this does not come naturally to me. It’s a struggle putting so much out there yet trying to have a quiet and private life at the same time
Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamorous model on set? At this point with my team, it’s just like meeting up with old friends and catching up on stories, except They’re doing my hair and makeup and going through pieces of lingerie.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? I’m not really sure. I don’t tend to attract negative energy.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would you say are your favorite ones? The humanity groups that I volunteer for definitely get funded a lot faster! This allows us to put more food in the bellies of children in third-world countries.
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? The first biggest thing I can’t say or it may give them away. I guess the second would be getting proposed to while wearing a tank top and leggings. There was a ring and everything I was in complete shock.
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? After a long hot shower, I slip into a silky robe and rub fresh lotion all over my body.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? A call from my grandparents, Reddit, tranquility.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? Not at the moment, I just take things a day at a time.
