My paternal grandmother and my nana were seamstresses. I always watched them when they sewed and made dresses. When I was five years old, I designed a dress for my sister using a shower curtain. When my parents saw my talent, they enrolled me in camps that offered classes in design and/or sewing which involved taking classes with different talented and important designers in Puerto Rico, such as Carlota Alfaro, Jaer Caban, and Lisa Thom. From my first dress at five years old, until today, I understood that fashion design is my passion. It is a form of artistic expression and a medium used to express my ideas and where I come from. Puerto Rico is an island full of nature and beautiful beaches, these are the inspirations in my creations. I understand that this is what makes me unique as a person and a designer.
