If you weren’t a model...
I’d be doing something else creative. Maybe I’d be a wedding planner or a kindergarten teacher.
Jetset Pilates! (4203 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables, 305209-1007; jetsetpilates.com)
I always struggled with fitness, but as soon as I went to Jetset, I saw results right away. I sweat more than at the gym!
How has social media impacted your career?
Instagram is like my portfolio. Sometimes I have clients say, “I booked you because of the way you look in this video you posted.”
Do you feel responsible for setting a positive example for your followers?
I like to follow models who eat healthy, work out, and have a good vibe, so I like to give off that same thing. I don’t want it to seem fake; I’m a real person.
Go-to place for a night out?
I’m a big fan of Basement Miami
(2901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-641-7119; basement miami.com). I think it’s cool how they have the bowling alley, iceskating rink, and club all in one. I also love Soho Beach House
(4385 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-507-7900, sohobeach house.com). That’s kind of my thing; it’s a good day-drinking spot.
Advice to aspiring models?
Take care of your body and skin and love yourself!
