What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My favorite makeup item would be eye shadow because I feel it pulls your entire look together. For instance, I love wearing pink outfits and will use various shades of pink eyeshadow to complement its color. Blending various shades can create either a nice soft look or bold and colorful appearance depending on what you want to portray.

What according to you is a true friend?
I would choose to look like Cardi B. Her tan skin color, long hair, and fancy nail designs are things I admire about her. She is also a strong independent woman who did not come from much and worked her way to be who she is today. She knows what she wants and always works for it and gets it.

How do you handle criticism?
Putting smiles on others motivates me. It keeps pushing me to be the best me, to be happy, and to overcome obstacles. For instance, my little cousin looks up to me so I try to put a smile on his face by supporting him at his sports games and going to be a beach with him. It shows him how to treat others with respect so that he will perpetuate the cycle when his time comes.

When was the last time you tried something new?
A favorite Saturday for me is spending time with family and friends. Going to the beach and spending all day BBQing, stand up paddling, swimming, and snorkeling would be the icing on the cake. Days such as these are some of my most cherished memories. Fortunately living on an island with beautiful weather provides an abundance of opportunities to enjoy moments like these.
