— What’s the most interesting thing about your family? Do you have siblings?
We are 5 in the family, my parents and my two younger sisters, but we get to have MANY furry members that make our family much more numerous; 5 dogs (Rosita, Tigre, Bongo, Flaca and Chorri) and 4 cats (Negrito, Campanita, Ángeles and Gary).
— Who is someone you admire and why?
I definitely admire Nigella Lawson. First of all, she cooks amazingly and has the best and easiest recipes on earth. And then, of course, she is incredibly gorgeous.
— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I’m obsessed with cats. Since I’m really young when I see one I have this impulse of gritting my teeth to control my excitement and not running towards them to grab them. 2. I love to cook and do it quite well. 3. I find making collages while listening to loud music as one of the most relaxing and inspiring activities.

— What are you interested in that most people haven’t heard of?
Survival. I’ve always been fascinated by the world’s most remote locations. Bear Grylls – Ultimate Survival is actually my favourite TV show.
— How and when did you become a model?
I was scouted on the street by a strangely dressed guy who happened to own an agency. This was my final school year (2016).
— What tips or tricks have you picked up from modelling/the fashion industry?
Definitely how to be organised. The importance of being punctual and most importantly, kindness goes a long way!
