Favorite Latina fashionista: Selena Gomez. She's beautiful, classy, and trendy.

The Latino celeb I'd want to be best friends with: I fantisize about being best friends with Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez.

My first celebrity crush: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 10 Things I Hate About You. I was eight-years-old. I’m now 22, and he’s still my celebrity crush.

Something people don't know about me: I wrote a fake obituary about myself as an assignment in high school. I stumbled upon it while packing for my move to NYC. The obituary said that I graduated from Northwestern, started my career at a magazine in New York City, and eventually settled down in London. I’ve conquered the first two! I visited London for the first time this summer, and I absolutely fell in love! Hopefully, I’ll achieve that final goal in ten or twenty years.

Guilty pop culture addiction:  I’m shamelessly addicted to boy bands: One Direction, Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, The Wanted, Aventura. I love them all.

Celebrity I'd switch teams for: Naya Rivera.

Latino artist on my iPod right now: Right now, J Balvin is on repeat. 

Favorite Latin dish: My mom's rajas con queso.

Favorite Spanish-Language Song: Soy El Mismo - Prince Royce
