I went to a Professional Performing Arts High School, Fiorello H. LaGuardia, better known as the “Fame” School. I was a drama major there, taking classes with Ansel Elgort from “The Fault In Our Stars” and Timothee Chamalet, from “Call Me By Your Name”.
I am a vegetarian. My dad was a vegetarian and converted my mother to be one as well. Unfortunately, he was in a really bad car accident and needed to eat meat for protein, so I was raised eating only Chicken and Turkey. Later in life, my mom stopped eating meat for health issues, in addition to the fact that my dogs legs reminded her of chicken wings. I went on a cruise with my best friend, and when the boat stopped in Haiti, I was surrounded by chickens, goats, cows, etc. Going back on the boat later that day for dinner, it was appalling that they were serving the animals that I just saw walking freely an hour before. That is when and why I made my decision to become a vegetarian.
I am obsessed with murder mysteries. I always loved watching Mary Kate and Ashley detective series or reading Nancy Drew and wanted to be a detective, but my first grade boyfriend had shunned the idea, claiming it was not a safe career choice. Even though I decided to go into fashion instead of the FBI, I still like to crack my case at “Escape the Room” and “NBC : Dateline”, as well as “True Crime Series”. When I went to California, one of the stops I had to make was to see the famous “House on Bundy”- the house that holds the secrets of the O.J. Simpson case.
My favorite food is Italian. My go-to dish is Eggplant Parmigiana with a side of Spaghetti. Everyone thinks I am a healthy eater because I am a vegetarian. Just because I don’t eat meat, doesn’t mean I only eat veggies. Pizza and pasta are two things I can live on.
I have been to 12 Countries. These include Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica, England, Ireland, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Greece and France.
My favorite drink is Sunny D. My grandma use to give it to me every night before bed, and now I can’t go to sleep without it. I dilute it a lot so that it’s not that bad, but it’s still very bad.
I have a Maltese dog that I got when I was 10. Her name is Emma. I named her Emma because I am obsessed with the show, “Friends”, and Rachel’s baby on the show was named Emma. I also had a turtle that I had since I was 2, but she passed away last summer. Her name was Sunny.
I can do a really spot on Britney Spears impression. My friends call me “Britney”. I LOVE HER! I dragged Alex to the “Little White Chapel” in Vegas because she was once there.
Starbucks gets me going. I received $300 in Starbucks gift cards for my birthday. My go-to order is either a Venti Strawberry Acai with Lemonade, Venti Iced Caramel Latte, Hot Venti Caramel Latte with Whipped cream and of course, a good, basic PSL!
I am a go getter that cannot sit still! I love getting dressed in the morning even if I am not going anywhere because it gives me purpose. If I have no plans, I will make them for myself or else I feel like I wasted the day, even if that means sitting in Starbucks with my computer.
