The pleasure is mine! Thank you once again for including me in your feature! I grew up in the humble suburbs in the Philippines with my grandparents. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to live because my country taught me how to become a humble and resilient person. 10 years ago, I was planning on becoming a High-school teacher but then life showed me that I was better at other things, which is why I am in a completely different field now; I work as a Human Resource Specialist with the military to be exact. I am working on my Business Administration Degree. I am loving life here in the US and have been happily married for 3 years now, we do not have kids but we have one Persian cat whom we adore, her name is Snow.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
Independence and achieving the short term goals I set for myself. There are plenty of small things here and there that I am proud of. I am proud of myself in terms of career. I am doing pretty well despite not having a degree. However, I am working on my degree. Once I finish it, I can truly give myself a big pat on the back!
Which is the best compliment you have received?
Someone had asked if I was real. I was not sure if they were asking if I had surgery done, but to clarify that, I have no surgery done and I don’t plan to get any. So yeah, that was a pretty cool compliment.
How will you describe your fashion style?
I don’t see myself sticking to a particular style. If I see something that I like, I will try it on. I will rock anything from flip-flops to cowgirl boots. I like putting my own clothing combination together with a little help from Pinterest. I also believe my friends have a better grip of what my style is and according to them I have a well-coordinated way of dressing.
Do you believe in any superstition?
My mom raised me to be one! But as I grew older I realized that superstitions are there for us for safety and logical reasons. One example: Do not sweep during night time. Explanation; it is dark and you might miss some nooks and crannies, so if you think about it, it’s better to sweep during the day.
What hobbies or interests do you have?
Now that I just purchased our house, I have been looking into home renovations! I used to be also good with artworks and I might start painting and drawing again because I can never find the right artwork to hang in my house.
If you could time travel, where will you go?
I will go back to when I was 7 so my grandma could lift me up with her legs again and play superwoman! She is much older now so it would hurt her if she tries to lift me up using her legs.
What is an ideal first date to you?
On a quiet lounge with wine and view of the city. No dancing and no chaos. Just you and I getting to know each other.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Catrina. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
It is characterized by confidence and maturity. Sexy does not literally mean showing excessive skin. You are sexy when you become sure of yourself, when you are capable of making decisions and willing to take responsibility of the consequences.
