Hi Maria it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Well, I am from a small town called Masaya near the capital of the country Nicaragua. A little about myself, I have been pretty independent ever since I was a teenager. I have always had a passion for fashion and modeling so I moved to NY at a very young age to pursue my dream. I started out as a scout and booker, but eventually was able to get into modeling.
I love the arts too; I enjoy drawing anime style sketches and enjoy a good flick. I just recently moved to LA from my home country again to concentrate full time on modeling. I have worked with and met some great people already and I am just getting started.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
My proudest achievement is my independence at an early age and my hard work as a model. I have been lucky enough to work with great people and brands as a model. I used to be kind of over-weight but I have pushed myself to get in shape and it has helped me out a lot. I’m never done either. I work out hard, try to maintain a healthy diet, and just live a good lifestyle. Still, I hope my proudest achievements are yet to come.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
Definitely that I can go far and be something special. Also being told I am easy to work with and very professional.
How will you describe your fashion style?
My style is classy but a little sexy too. I like to follow recent trends in fashion and put my own touch on things. I also like to dress casual style because I have that kind of relaxed vibe.
What is the funniest thing you have witnessed or happened to you?
I once ended up sleeping in the sand of a random beach sharing a blanket with my two best friends. It was ridiculous how we ended up there in the first place but it happened and we always laugh about it.
If you could be a fictional character, who will you be?
Hua Mulan. She was unselfish, a risk taker, and a fighter. She goes beyond just a Disney movie. She is worth looking up to.
Which genre of movies do you enjoy most?
Definitely horror/psychological thrillers!
What is your worst date experience ever?
My worst date was with a guy who invited me to dinner. It was weird and we barely spoke to each other. Then he asked me if we could go to his place and he wanted me to pay the bill too. That was pretty bad haha!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Maria. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
“Sexy” to me is confidence in one self. Being cultured and having a good fashion sense is important too. Vulgarity is not sexy in my opinion; you don’t have to look so provocative to be sexy.
