1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I journal every single day in my train commute. It's so important to write our thoughts down, but also to try to get to know ourselves on a different level and the reason why I always do it while I'm in the train is because I found myself under a lot of pressure while I'm at home alone. It's like I'm almost trying to impress myself with my words instead of being fully present and letting all the words go through my hands, the pen and the paper. When I'm on the train, I'm surrounded by so many people and so many distractions that I have no other option than to concentrate and use those 15-20 minutes to let it all out.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
Photography and filmmaking are the only things that I truly care about in terms of things that I feel passionate about. As far as hobbies, I like to sketch a lot and I often make little drawings or notes and leave them in the train hopping that someone will find it and smile.
3. What are your goals for the future?
My goal is to become one of the most influential Latin American female filmmakers in America over the next five years. There is a lot of stories that need to be told, and these are stories that can create a positive impact in peoples life's. These days I find myself surrounded by a lot of commercials, movies, music videos and things in the media that often make me feel like there is no hope in the world and if I'm being honest, these kinds of things are making us insensitive and distracted from the real issues. The goal is to wake people up, make them feel loved, and inspire them through filmmaking and through artwork so as to bring a spark to those who feel lost or without purpose.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success is when you try something that scares the shit out of you, and even if you "failed" you learn how to target issues and take care of them. Of course, success can be other things like being happy while you are doing what you love and blah blah blah, but the concept of success is constantly changing for me. I'm twenty one years old and whatever I think success is for me right now can be completely different in the next fifteen days based on what life throws at me.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
I'm currently working on the script for my first short film, and I'm incredibly excited about it because it's a story close to my heart and I think a lot of people will react to it. I want people to see the world through my eyes!!
