A snippet of who I am —

I am a woman who has lived more life in 38 years than most! From my tough up bringing in the streets of the Bronx to my life today...One thing is for sure, I have always remained true to my authentic self!

Born on the Island of Puerto Rico, migrated to NY when I was a child and we settled in the tough streets of the Bronx! Raised by my grand parents, to say that we were poor is an understatement! The lessons I learned as a child, the things I experienced and the moments I had to learn to cope with and survive have given me a strength that I never thought id ever have.

Life can be rough and its so easy to go down the wrong road when you’re surrounded my nothing but poverty, sadness and death. I always knew that the obstacles of my childhood would define me, but never is a negative way! I refused to end up a statistic....It is up to each and every one of us to choose our own path.

I am proud of the woman I have become, at 38 I have spent 22 years in the fashion industry and it has been one hell of a career. I have 2 teenage sons and a wonderful husband! None of this has come easy but all of it was worth it.

AMBITION is in my blood! You have the power to choose who you want to be..
