“I am passionate about giving back in anyway possible to different organizations (such as Dress for Success, SAFE, + other charitable causes/organizations). I am a fur mom to 4 pups, half Nicaragüense + half Cuban, and bilingual.
My family and I collect and send donations year round to Nicaragua for over 10 years, I have participated in 5 FLC International Children’s Foundation fashion shows for a cause to benefit the building of schools in the Philippines for children, and I am passionate about SAFE’s message which is Stop Abuse For Everyone.
I can’t wait to bring you along my journey and share more with you all throughout my year. I will do my best to make Texas proud!
