Place of Origin:
San Cristobal de La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain

Ethnic Origin:
My ethnic origin is mainly Cuban since all my family comes from there

I was born on July 3, 2001, therefore my zodiac sign is Cancer


How discovered:
It all started due to a post I made on Instagram, which fortunately my current mother agency saw. They told me to go to their agency to see me in person and apparently they liked me.

Best modeling experience so far?
My best experience in the modeling world was when I did my first Versace show. It was the first time that I was in Milan and it was a super exciting experience, when walking in the parade my whole body was in a state of adrenaline and the emotion was infinite, thanks to this everything turned out great and I loved the outcome.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Right now I am completely obsessed with my modeling career, I have all my energy on it. In addition, I also have a lot of motivation in the face of sports, and in particular, I seek to improve my physical and mental state day by day.

What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
What I always would have liked to do is go scuba diving, since I used to do spearfishing in the past, but I never got to dive into the depths with oxygen cylinders.

How do you want to make an impact in the world?
I’m not really interested in being remembered as such, for me the most important thing is to help my family and my loved ones and of course people in need.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice they gave me came from a friend who is also a model named Toni, who advises me to always keep humble and that is what I am doing and it really seems to me the most important thing.
