Hi Selina, it’s a great pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Hii! I was born in Memphis, TN and raised in NYC. Mostly the Bronx! I’m 75% Chinese and 25% Puerto Rican. I have a strawberry birthmark on my neck. My favorite colors are purple, black, gray, red and blue. I’m pretty much a laid back chick. I have a dog (Kaiza) and 2 cats (Sachi and Lexx). Animal lover and a normal human being with goals and dreams.
How did you get started into modeling?
When I was 19, a modeling manager came up to me at a club I worked at and said he wanted to work with me. The business relationship didn’t last long but I kept on trying to model on my own. I took a break from modeling for a little more than a year or so. I really got back into it in the end of 2014 with my long time friend Gil Rivera who’s a great photographer, and has been shooting me since I basically started. I also had some help this year from Harts Ortiz, founder of VisuélModels. I’ve met and worked with amazing talented and creative people. And the list will go on!
What is a typical day like for you?
Working and thinking of ways to better myself. And of course taking care of my babies.
Do you have any hobbies?
I love to sing and dance. Sometimes I’ll write. Doing things where I can express myself, feels great. It’s good for the mind and body!
Where can we catch you partying most of the time?
Honestly, home! Since I’ve worked at clubs and events before, the party scene is not that interesting to me anymore. When I have free time, I like chilling at home. Smoke and laugh. Watch stuff on Netflix or Hulu. Maybe play some video games. Spend time with my fur babies!
Tell us 3 things about New York that most people don’t know of?
Damn, this one is hard. Um…I don’t know what to say for this one.
If you had the opportunity to learn anything in the world, what will it be?
Learn to be Batman! Nah, realistically I’ll like to learn some kind of martial arts. It’s hot when a woman knows how to kick ass and defend herself.
With 2016 coming up, have you managed to accomplish your resolutions of 2015?
I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. I believe if you really need to make a change, it doesn’t matter what day, week, month, year it is. You do it when you feel you’re ready. With that said, 2015 has been a rough year for me & my love ones. But at the same time I have accomplished a lot this past year. And I’m ready to keep moving forward and keep growing.
Thank you for taking your time to answer our questions on SimplySxy. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I like this question. In my opinion, there’s a lot of definitions for “sexy”. Sexy is confidence, intelligence, independence, appearance, how different or humble someone is. I think everyone has something sexy about them. There’s sexy people all around us. Thanks for featuring me and Happy New Year!
