Her discipline is what has led into what she is nowadays, when she has something in her mind, she doesn’t stop until she gets it. Besides that, optimism, spirituality, faith, and relationship with God is what empowers her every day. She is currently under the management of Jorge Mondragón, a manager based in México City, and apart from modelling, she is also interested in photography, being behind the cameras, documenting her memories is also fun.

She never focusses if the project is big or small, she is proud of everything she has accomplished until now. Each of those are experiences who are creating and molding her career and being who she is becoming. Also, she accepts their fails, she assures that one of her weaknesses is that she doesn’t like to ask for help to the point that she can get in difficult situations trying to carry a lot of pressure by herself, but as the professional she is working on delegating it and letting other people accepting advice and learning from them.
As a fun fact, despite being a model, she only takes from 10 to 15 minutes to choose her outfit, sometimes she spends the Sunday creating new outfits so when she is in a rush she can get ready fast, as she says: “A little bit of OCD never killed anybody.”
