Hi Francesca it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Thanks for featuring me! Well, I’m an 18 year old college student currently living in Sacramento, California. I grew up in Cerritos, near Long Beach, before moving up north when I was 8. Currently I’m pursuing psychiatry with a minor in writing and anthropology. I have a passion for animals, traveling, reading, makeup, and music. I try to be spontaneous and live in the moment, appreciate life as much as I can. I’m a huge advocate for movements and charity foundations I believe in. Disney is my life, and I’m not ashamed of that haha. I’ll scream Disney songs at the top of my lungs in the car. Also I’ll try to pet any dog I see. I’m full Filipina, and pretty tiny – I’m 4’11” LOL.
What perks do you enjoy most about being a model?
I love being able to travel to different locations, meet new people, and the self-esteem it gives me to take all these great photos. Oh, and the free food and clothes I get occasionally. That’s dope too.
Do you have any other hobbies?
I’m the type who’s always down to try new things. I’m a makeup artist. I love love love beating my face and coming up with these new looks, and helping other people look great for their special events. I practice vape tricks in my spare time, it’s my little vice. Going to concerts and clubs are always fun.
I always take some time to do some volunteer work too. I’m really into dancing; I used to do some hip-hop and Polynesian and I’m looking to get back into it again. Writing’s a big hobby of mine, I come up with these stories off the top of my head. I do some sketching here and there too. And of course, I’m always down to go out on adventures and make new memories with my friends.
What is a typical day like for you?
My days are either crazy busy or super slow haha. But I would say on average, I wake up, cook some food, have lunch with friends, play with my dog, get some errands done, then settle in with a book or watch Netflix.
Has there been a funny or embarrassing episode that has happened to you that you can share?
There’s honestly so many! I remember one time, I was at Laguna Beach with some friends. It was in the middle of summer, so it was a busy day. The waves were pretty strong and I always let them carry me or jump into them. There was this really big wave coming, and at first I was kind of intimidated, but decided to jump in anyway. So once it hit, I just remember getting so caught off guard that it swept me off my feet and threw me around like a little rag doll. Little had I realized the strings of my bikini had loosened up from all the jostling around, and once I managed to get onto the sand and on my feet I felt really bare–my entire bikini top had come off.
Everyone was staring; parents were covering their kids eyes, my friends were crying with laughter, and I guess my top got swept up into the sea never to be found again. I had to borrow a friend’s jacket to cover up the rest of the day, but I know several people had gotten what happened on their phone. It was hilarious and mortifying all at the same time. My friends still give me shit about it to this day.
If you could shop for free at one store, which one would you choose?
Top Shop for sure. Sephora’s a close second though!
What is the lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Once I was in my car on my way to a store. This guy pulled up next to me at a stop light. He was going straight, and I was in the lane to turn left. When the light went green, he turned into my lane and followed me for about 10 minutes. Once I got to the store, he kept “coincidentally” showing up in the isle where I was–even the feminine section–and trying to play it off like he just happened to be there. Later on he “accidentally” bumps into me and picks up my things, but doesn’t give them to me.
He tried starting an awkward conversation with me about what I was holding and why I was getting that stuff. I kept politely trying to end the conversation, get my things and be on my way. Then he says to me, “How about this: I’ll pay for all your things if you come over and hang out with me tonight.” This dude was doing the most. I got annoyed, turned him down, and went to get new things and left as soon as I could.
One major turn off a guy can do is?
Cockiness. I don’t care how hot you are, how many girls you get, or how much money you have. Confidence is one thing, which I like, but if you act like I’m already into you without even getting to know me, expect to get shut down.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Francesca. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Thanks again for having me!
The term “sexy” to me doesn’t just apply to physical traits. A person who’s confident, has ambition, is passionate about what they care about, someone who stays grounded and humble no matter how high their accomplishments are. Also, a person who’s not afraid to be themselves, admit their weaknesses, and be a dork. I guess someone who stays real and true to who they are. That’s sexy.
