1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I think a lot of people don’t know that I’m actually biracial. I’m half Filipino and half African-American. I was born in Hawaii and grew up in the Philippines. Also, not too many people know that I dance Argentine Tango and I used to be part of a girl group (we used to perform/ sing & dance songs from the 80s-90s). Oh, and I’m still in college working on my degree to become a pre-school teacher.
2. What are your biggest passions?
I’ve always been into performing arts since I was a little kid. I remember always singing and dancing in the shower and in the living room when I’m alone at home. I’ve also been passionate with fashion since I was like 8 years old, not modeling but fashion design. I wanted to be a fashion designer growing up, but changed my mind after high school. I discovered I love teaching children and being around kids. My biggest passion right now is definitely teaching and guiding children, especially one’s with learning disabilities.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I have a lot of things on my list, but I’ll share some of them. My goals for the next 3 years include finishing my degree in Early Childhood Education then getting my MBA’s, moving to NYC and modeling out there, and starting my own business in fashion. In the next 5-10 years, I do hope to have my own pre-school or teaching institution, own a beach house in Hawaii and an apartment in the big apple or wherever. I don’t know where I’ll be by then since I’m always wandering and moving. I still have a lot of goals, but I’ll keep them to myself for now.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success is not defined by money, fame or power, instead for me you’re successful when you’re happy and content with the life that you live. It’s a matter of satisfaction especially when you can appreciate what’s around you. Having solid relationships, a well-being and constant growth. It’ll also be nice to make an impact in people’s lives.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
I am currently working on a TV show which is airing on a foreign cable channel. Also, playing around the idea of getting into acting and performing arts. Lately, just building my portfolio for a new adventure that I’m diving in. A lot of exciting things ahead. <3
