19 Jul 2019

Can you tell us a little about you?

I am 28 years old, I was born in Florence (Italy) but I have a South American background from my mother side exactly from Bolivia. I lived and studied in Bolivia.

I started working as a model when I was 13 years old, I did athletics during the school. I speak Spanish, English and a little bit of Portuguese. I lived in Sydney, Australia during one year and it was an amazing experience. When I came back to Italy, in 2008, I continued to work as a model and three years ago I start doing spot tv commercial so working as a advertisement actress. I was studying Business & Management but unfortunately I did’t finish it. Last year I moved from Florence to Milan and I started studying acting in Grock School. I am really passionate.

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

I would definitely change being anxious and learn to be more relax.

 

How did you start modeling?

I started , suddenly, when I was 13 years old in Bolivia. Encouraged by my mom to enter to do a catwalk courses but just to lose shyness in a new model agency who was opening and after a month they noticed me and immediately signed a contract.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

Well, because I started when I was so young I learned to be responsible from an early age. I t is hard, it is not so easy as many people think, you have to keep your feet on the ground, persevere because there are many bad days where you have to give up always I think I never dedicated 100% to do modeling because I always did to many things. I worked part time as a Sales Assistant from 2012 till 2018 in different famous store but last year I changed life and I moved to Milan to dedicated a year to do this job only and study acting.

 

What is your beauty regimen?

I do not have any beauty regimen, the only thing that I can say is I eat healthy, I have been vegan for four years now , I don’t drink alcohol and I don't smoke.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I think that I try to stay always with my feet on the ground, I am a positive person even if something is going wrong I think everyting happen for a reason, I am a strong woman thing that I didn’t know but I realize it after a hard period.

 

What are your plans for the future?

Well, I am a dreamer person so I have plans in my life of course, goals to achieve but I keep them with me because I am superstitious and sometimes what you want is not what life have for you.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

One of my favorite experience in my all career is my Salvatore Ferragamo Tour, I traveled around Europe and I had the opportunity to visit some European cities; my spot commercial tv Imetec with Belen Rodriguez( famous showgirl in Italy), Dr. School and others. Showroom for Guess and Patrizia Pepe. In 2016 I participated in the Miss World Italy competition and I was ranked among the top 5 finalist after many girls who had participated.

 

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?

Never give up!! Keep strong, be always positive, keep their feet on the ground and smile always!!

 

What do you think of the magazine?

I think is so interesting that it gives new talents the chance to be known.
