What attracted you to modeling?
I’m super outgoing and love being in front of the camera. My dream is to be an entertainment news reporter. It just seemed natural that modeling would be a fun opportunity for me.
What are some of your most memorable moments from modeling?
This past summer I got to do a sunrise shoot on the beach. I have never actually watched the sun rise so it was incredible to finally witness that. It was truly an epic shoot!
Like modeling, what attracted you to Mexico?
One of my largest passions in life is traveling. I’m trying to see the entire world before I need a walker, so of course, Mexico is on the list. I love feeling completely detached from my regular life whenever I travel, and Mexico is definitely a different world to me. I love that for a week or so, you can be completely lost in a different culture and learn new things every day that you spend there.
Have you been to Mexico often? If so, do you have a favorite location?
I have been going to Mexico since I was little on family vacations and trips with friends, and I plan to make it back there plenty of more times! I have to say my favorite location in Mexico is Cabo San Lucas. I think it has the perfect combination of partying, relaxation, and my favorite aspect – incredible food. Also, El Arco de Cabo is so incredibly breathtaking; everyone needs to see it at least once.
What makes Mexico special to you?
I think what makes any vacation to Mexico special is the way that you get to experience a culture so different than your own. The music, the food, the dancing; everything is so vibrant and full of life.
Why would you tell other people to visit Mexico?
So many reasons! The pristine beaches, the chance to brush up on your Spanish language skills, and a taste of some of the freshest guacamole you’ll ever have…just to name a few. Mexico is a place you can go to for a family reunion, a bachelorette party, or your honeymoon. It has something to offer everyone that visits.
Tell us more about you.
I’m from New York but I currently go to school in Florida. I’m a friendly, outgoing person and I love to laugh more than anything else. I’m a bit of a jokester; life is too short to be taken too seriously. The promise of pizza and cupcakes can usually motivate me to accomplish just about anything.
Do you have a favorite charity and, if so, why?
I support the Animal Lovers of Mexico Association (ALMA). As a huge animal lover and pet-owner I think it’s important that the animals in the Los Barilles get the care that they deserve.
What is something unique about you to tell our readers?
I’m addicted to live music. There’s nothing like seeing one of your favorite artists performing just five or ten feet away from you at a show. Because of my love for travel, I will often go great distances to see an artist. Music + travel makes me a happy girl!
ALMA (Animal Lovers of Mexico Assoc.) is a non-profit Mexican corporation with the main mission is to support the well being of domestic animals of the Los Barilles area. Through private contributions (we receive no govt. funding) we are able to provide spay/neuter, vaccines, and veterinary services for animals of families who qualify for our assistance.
ALMA is entirely run by volunteers and all proceeds benefit local animals. ALMA – “Together we DO make a difference”! Read more about ALMA and make a donation here: http://www.almacares.com/
